To commemorate Dwyane Wade’s last game, Barack Obama made a special tribute video to the 3x Champion and 13x All-Star, describing Wade as a consummate professional who completed one of the greatest careers in NBA history.

“I know what you’re going through, because saying goodbye to a career is never easy” the former President said to the camera, “yet for 16 years you’ve given us high-wire dunks, big shots in big moments, more blocks than any guard in history” while adding that he was also willing to sacrifice his body in the lane and his ego in pursuit of a title.

Elsewhere in the tribute, Obama noted that he always played with a Chicago spirit “that made us proud,” as he thanked him one last time for all that he did for the game.
