Dwyane Wade Loves That Athletes Are Using Their Platforms To Speak Up For Good!

Dwyane Wade thinks that it’s great that his fellow athletes are using their platforms to speak up for good causes!

“I love the fact that athletes are using their platform — they’re using their voice and getting behind the things that they believe in,” the 34-year-old Chicago Bulls basketball player told Michigan Avenue.

“We all have freedom of speech; we all have the right to say and do the things we want, and they’re doing it, so I applaud them for it,” Dwyane added. “I’m one of the guys who got on stage [with Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and LeBron James] at the ESPY awards [and gave] a call to action to athletes to stand up and use their voice, so it’s great to see athletes doing that.”

Last night (December 11), Dwayne suited up to celebrate his Michigan Avenue winter issue cover at a special event held in his honor at Siena Tavern in Chicago.
