That’s top of Wade’s mind at the moment, but he did get something special from the league earlier this morning.
Wade was awarded the WNBA’s Coach of the Year, becoming the first in franchise history to receive the honor.
It comes after the Sky made a great turnaround from the last two seasons in which they missed the playoffs to finish with a 20-14 record.
The win total is the third-highest in the team’s 14-year history and earned them a fifth-seed in this year’s WNBA Playoffs.
Unfortunately, there won’t be much celebrating for Wade as his team faces a “win-or-go-home” game immediately this postseason.
Should the Sky win this game, they’d have to go to Los Angeles to face the Sparks for another one-game playoff on Sunday.
