“We all talk about support, but support means something different to each of us,” Wade told ESPN. “Instead of tweeting and saying, ‘Go support the W,’ instead of just coming to the game and supporting, I wanted to take it to the next level, and this was the next level for me.”

He added, “It’s a great opportunity to be part of a league that is in its early stages. There’s going to be growth, and I want to be a part of that growth.”

Nadia Rawlinson, co-owner and Chief Operating Officer of the Sky, told ESPN, “It’s important for the players, and it’s important for the city as a whole. Dwyane Wade is a son of Chicago. And what sets us apart, I think, from other franchises is that we are Chicago. We are the future of Chicago. We are the culture of Chicago. We are in this city, and we are a part of it, and he is kind of the main character in this story. And we’re excited and thrilled about what the future can bring as we work together.”
