On Tuesday, the Miami Heat succumbed to the Philadelphia 76ers in a five-game series. The new-generation Sixers outlasted the older Miami team in Game 5 by a score of 104-91. Part of that older Heat team is NBA veteran and Miami beloved Dwyane Wade. Wade has now completed his 15th season in the National Basketball Association, and he'll be turning 37 years old this year. The question everyone is mulling is, "Is Dwayne Wade going to decide to retire [VIDEO]?" Wade has not had much to say on the matter.

After the game, Wade was mum on his future.

"That's not my focus," He explained to a pool of reporters after the game. "Fresh off this NBA season, my 15th year, I sit back and think about that."

Wade said the decision needs to be family oriented, saying they're "next on my bucket list."

Wade held a reserved role for most of the series, in Game 5 as well.

In the final game against Philadelphia, Wade shot 11 points (4-for-15), with five rebounds and five assist in 30 minutes. After this game, Wade has 177 career playoff games, which stands for 19th all-time in NBA history.

No one is going to forget the three straight finals series he took on with LeBron James, who now resides in Cleveland. Wade was almost looking to replicate some kind of old history when he joined the Cleveland Cavaliers in the past offseason.

Wade was bought out by the Chicago Bulls after playing for his hometown organization during the 2016-2017 campaign. He joined Cleveland after being bought out by Chicago.

With Cleveland looking for a tuneup, there was nearly a complete overhaul of the entire Cavaliers team, which sent Wade packing and heading back where it all began in Miami.

There was plenty of reaction to Wade's future.

Wade also kept it light telling reporters, "I love Philly, but ain't gonna be no breaking news here in Philly."

His head coach, Erik Spoelstra has been working with Wade since the guard was drafted in 2003. Spoelstra was hired as an assistant coach in Miami in 1997. He took over the head coaching job from Pat Riley, the current President of the Miami Heat.

The coach who won three championships with Wade stayed away from getting emotional when talking about Wade's future.

"You're going to make me emotional if we start to think about that or talk about that right now," Spoelstra said.

His wife Gabrielle Union took to Twitter to show her appreciation for her husband's career, saying that she hoped it was not over.

"I hope this isn't the end, but my God...," Union said in a part of her tweet.

The present time in Wade's career comes at a time where he sits at the top of the leaderboards in nearly every statistical category in the Miami Heat organization.

Other than winning three championships with the Heat in 2006, 2012, and 2013 and being named Finals Most Valuable Player in 2006, NBA.com reports that the Chicago native is also the all-time leader in points (20,473), assists (5,009), steals (1,433), field goals made (7,426) and attempted (15,267), and free throws made (5,226) and attempted (6,815).
