Dwyane Wade admits he is concerned that the Chicago Bulls are currently a .500 team and there won’t be much growth over the final three months of the season.
“I do,” Wade said after shootaround Tuesday. “I’m 35. I do get concerned. Of course.”
Wade signed a two-year deal with the Bulls in the offseason with a player option for Year 2.
“I don’t know if it’s that simple, if it’s that black and white,” Wade said. “I think you see certain teams throughout a year can get better and you see certain teams — you will see it. You can tell that it’s just who they are. I’ve been on both. I’ve been on teams that it’s just who you are and you deal with it for the whole year. And some teams you get better as the years go on.”
“Right now we are who we are.”
Wade told ESPN.com last week that Jimmy Butler’s future would also play a major part in his decision.
“I wouldn’t lie to you and say no,” Wade said. “Of course. I can’t play this game forever. I just turned 35 and I have a number in my head how long I want to play. At the end of the day you want to be in a situation where it’s a competitor situation, whatever the case may be. It’s tough in this league as well because a lot of that also depends on how much money you’re willing to make. It depends on what city you’re willing to be in. So it’s a lot of variables to that, but no question about it, what happens throughout this year, as I go into my summer, I’ll definitely take a look at it. I take my career seriously and where I am and where I want to be. And I will do the same thing this summer.”
