Dwyane Wade Surprises Fan, Shows Up At Her Prom

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Nicole Muxo, a senior at Miami’s Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School and a rabid fan of the Miami Heat, decided to swing for the fences when it came time for prom: About a month ago, she extended a video invite to Miami Heat G Dwyane Wade.
-

-
Credit to Muxo for having the moxie to go public with her invite. (Also, probably a shrewd move to use Wade’s fellow Chicago-native Kanye West as the video’s soundtrack.)

The video racked up tens of thousands of views, and eventually made its way to Wade. As it turned out, Wade and the Heat were busy the last few weeks, dispatching the Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls on their way to the Eastern Conference Finals. But after defeating the Bulls in five games, the Heat suddenly had the weekend off. And as Wade explained to WSVN in Miami, Muxo left nothing to chance:

“She actually DM’d me on Twitter and said, ‘This is the address, this is where I’m gonna be just in case,’ and when I got that I said, I won’t be doing nothing tomorrow night and I can go and make this a memorable moment for her.”

Seems like Wade was on the mark with his wish:

Wade actually brought along a video crew to document the evening…

Oh, according to the Miami Herald, Muxo’s date, Laurent Chaumin, took it all in stride: “At least we both know how to dress.”

    Have hated Wade for a long time. But this is pretty awesome that he’s done this. Improves my opinion of him a lot. Good for you Wade.

  12. Much love to Dywane Wade, for such a thoughtful act of kindness, I really enjoy reading about moments like these when , much like MLB’s Mariano Rivera conversations with the away teams fans, when professional athletes take the time to give back to the community.

  28. juneauz says:

    Ridiculous and obviously staged.

    • xantheus13 says:

      Yeah there is always at least one pathetic hater…go troll somewhere else….

  29. Jesse says:

    Wade’s done it again! I remember he had a kid over to the Heat practice and then took him and his mom out to lunch on his birthday. Always a heartwarming story. More athletes should do this.

  30. iceman says:

    D Wade your the man! Stay cool as you are!

  31. Will says:

    +Respect Mr. Wade. You’re a good guy real talks.

  32. I LIKE THAT WADE, YOU WILL HAVE MORE FANS FOR SHOWING AT HER PROM. I’M YOUR FAN NOW.

  33. Tre' Nichols says:

    This was a very nice thing that you did, Mr. Wade. Such a great act of kindness. A lot of people think that athletes are “jerks” because of the way they play the game, but people need to realize that many athletes actually DO care about others in their communities. Good for you that you had the heart to change the life of a young woman. Good luck winning your third championship ring! :)

    Best of wishes;

    Tre’

  41. Flash says:

    Wade is the man, haters can’t hate on Him on this moment.

  42. GangstaP says:

    I’ve always liked Wade. I used to like the Heat until LeBron joined. Big ups to Wade for being a great role model to his fans and for serving a fan like this. Your game may be dropping, but your character continues to make up for it. Good job, Wade. P.S. Miami is your territory. Only one king allowed. That means “King James” shouldn’t be called “King James” because you’re the true king of Miami!

    • VB032191 says:

      AGREED ONLY ONE MAYOR IN MIAMI WADE COUNTY AND THAT IS DWYANE WADE! OVERALL HAS BEEN THE MOST SKILLED CRAFTY AND FINNESSE PLAYER WE HAVE EVER HAD IN THIS FRANCHISE. EVEN BEING 6’4 HE DOESNT HAVE TO JUST BULLDOZE HIMSELF IN THE PAINT WITH UNFREAKISHLY ATHLETIC ABILITY HES SKILLED AND CRAFTY WHICH IS MUCH BETTER. LIVED IN MIAMI ALL MY LIFE AND HEAT FAN SINCE 1998 WADE YOUR STILL THE HEART AND SOUL OF MIAMI!

      compared to your success? I mean come on man, the dude would hit you with a roll of benjies so large it’d knock you out. and if you don’t have something nice to say, go somewhere else to say it. not when folks are sharing and commending a really cool thing for a celeb to do for a mere mortal. but I guess we all know what haters do best.
