Dwyane Wade might be a superstar on the NBA’s top team the Miami Heat, but when he’s not getting lots of good press thanks to his strong performance on the basketball court, he’s getting plenty of bad press thanks to his soured relationship with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade. Regardless, D Wade is still out here doing some good for people who consider themselves to be huge fans of the NBA star and the other day, he did something incredibly kind of for one of his biggest fans. According to multiple reports, he decided to surprise the teen fan at her prom. WSNV-TV reports:


The South Florida teen who created a YouTube video asking Dwyane Wade to her high school prom, had her wish come true.

Last month, Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School senior Nicole Muxo created a YouTube prom proposal video asking her favorite basketball player, Miami Heat champion Dwyane Wade to prom.

Wade accepted Muxo’s proposal and surprised the teen and her classmates Friday night at her prom at La Jolla Ballroom in Coral Gables. “She actually DM’d me on Twitter and said, ‘This is the address, this is where I’m gonna be just in case,’ and when I got that I said I won’t be doing nothing tomorrow night and I can go and make this a memorable moment for her,” said Wade.

“I’m gonna remember it forever. This was my highlight of my senior year,” said Muxo.


The Miami Heat star posted a few pictures of the night to his Instagram account:

    1. LOL that’s what I was thinking but I will give him the benefit of doubt because he did something nice.

  1. I’m still at a loss as to why people have a negative impression on Wade as it relates to his divorce.
