SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Dwyane Wade is an NBA legend and when someone on Twitter commented that Donovan Mitchell reminds them of Wade – the former Miami Heat star paid Mitchell a massive compliment.

The first tweet from @KingShrugs showed a video of Mitchell dunking during the Jazz’s game against the Washington Wizards and read, “the way he gets through the lane reminds me of the great @DwyaneWade.”

Wade responded to the comparison on Twitter.

“He has way more bounce than I had tho,” Wade tweeted.

Mitchell and Wade played against each other for the final time on December 12, 2018 in Salt Lake City when the Jazz picked up a 111-84 win. When the two teams played in Miami earlier in December on the 2nd, Wade and Mitchell exchanged jersey’s after the Heat won by two points. Miami won that game after Wade hit two free throws.
