MILWAUKEE — Dwyane Wade is retiring at the end of this season, after having one of the greatest NBA careers of all time.

As it turns out, the Marquette University legend was more than just a basketball phenom, but someone who truly cared about helping others.

In Budweiser's tribute video, five guests appear before Wade at AmericanAirlines Arena, the home of the Miami Heat.

The five guests include a woman he took on a shopping spree after her house burned down 10 days before Christmas, the sister of a Parkland shooting victim who played on the basketball team, a woman who couldn't afford college, a man who grew up in a poor neighborhood and his mother.

Wade changed their lives with his actions and his words.

"I know my brother is with you, always," the sister of the Parkland victim said.

"I am more proud of the man you have become, than the basketball player. You are bigger than basketball," his mother said.
