Did Dwyane Wade get an ARTIFICIAL knee pad implant in the left Knee that caused him to retire?
A new video has surfaced online, pointing out the fact that something looks a bit off and new about Dwyane Wade's left knee area while he was in China. The same knee that ailed him his entire NBA career. The knee, that made Dwyane Wade think about retirement even during the Lebron James Heat Era.
Dwyane Wade's knee problems started all the way back in college. After a torn meniscus injury, Dwyane Wade opted to have it removed, rather than repaired, so he could return to the basketball court quicker. At the time it sounded like the right decision, he was back on the floor in no time. However, as time went on having a part of his meniscus removed broke down the knee joint, leading to issues that ultimately led to his retirement this past season.
While in the NBA, having an experimental surgery on his left knee, wouldn't have been allowed or possible for him. Now that he is retired however, it definitely would be an option for him considering the amount of money he has. It definitely looks like Dwyane Wade possibly has some type of permanent artificial cushioning and stretching device implanted around his left knee now. Honestly you can't really blame him, for getting the implant either, to the knee-shamers out there.
