Retired NBA player Dwyane Wade lost a ton of money gambling. It was so bad that his financial adviser thought he might have a serious issue.
In a recent interview with Men’s Health, the former Miami Heat guard spoke on playing poker on road trips and proceeded to lose way more than he expected.
“There have been times where I wanted out because I was losing so much money,” said Wade. “Like, my financial advisor called me and was like ‘Hey, is this something we need to talk about? Do you have a problem?’”
Wade stated he did not go to casinos, because he’s “not a big gambler” and that the games he played with his teammates brought them closer together.
“When you play sports, it’s like a right of passage that you have to play cards on the plane,” said Wade. “It’s kind of like… a team thing. It’s how we connect. It’s how we bond. And I’ve lost a lot of money on the plane just trying to play with my teammates.”
