Last night, Dwayne Wade took to his Instagram and gave a special shout out to thank his angel, Douglas High School victim, Joaquin Oliver on the victory against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Oliver was a huge fan of Wade's and was buried in his Miami Heat jersey.
After hearing about his passing, Dwayne tweeted a picture of Joaquin Oliver and emphasized why basketball players "will not just SHUT up and dribble!"
This is Joaquin Oliver. He was one of the 17 young lives that were lost tragically at Douglas HighSchool in Parkland. Joaquin was one of many that i heard was excited about my return to Miami and yesterday was buried in my jersey. This is why we will not just SHUT up and dribble! pic.twitter.com/X0tfTTao33— DWade (@DwyaneWade) February 26, 2018
If that wasn't enough, the Miami Heat star player dedicated the rest of the season to the Parkland shooting victim.
It’s way BIGGER than basketball. We are the voices for the people that don’t get to be heard. Joaquin Oliver may you Rest In Peace and i dedicate my return and the rest of this Miami Heat season to you. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾— DWade (@DwyaneWade) February 26, 2018
