As a spectator, I admire this sportsperson because he is a phenomenal basketball player, who is popular internationally and is always determined to try his best and lead his team to victory every game. 2. Dwyane Wade·s ambition to win each game, lightning speed and agility, behaviour on and off the court, and his deadly shots and dunks are the major contributing factors to his success. His enthusiasm to give it his best during each game has earned him the NBA Scoring Title in the 2008-2009 season, 2006 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, and multiple NBA All-Star game positions. 3. Wade is also well known for his philanthropic involvement in various organizations. In 2003, he founded The Wade's World Foundation, which provides support to community-based organizations that promote education, health, and social skills for children in at-risk situations. He hosts a variety of community outreach programs in Chicago and South Florida. In 2008, he announced his partnership with former teammate Alonzo Mourning's charitable foundation and co-hosted ZO's Summer Groove, an annual summer event. Wade is also a devout Christian and chose the number 3 on his jersey because it represents the Holy Trinity. He tithes 10% of his salary to a church in Chicago.
