Wade wants to be Introduced: ‘From Chicago, Illinois’


As he adjusts to his new life with the Chicago Bulls after 13 seasons as a member of the Miami Heat, Dwyane Wade wants his introduction before home games at the United Center to be short and sweet.

“From Chicago, Illinois,” Wade said after Wednesday’s practice. “Simple as that. I thought about the whole Marquette University thing. It would be cool to have two guys coming out from Marquette University, but I think coming back to the city, just hearing, ‘From Chicago, Illinois,’ will be good to me. I did it so many ways in Miami — I think I’ve heard it every way. I did it from Robbins [Illinois] one year, I did it from Marquette, and I did it from Chicago one year, so I know what [the introductions] sound like.”
