HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — Around this time a decade ago, Dwyane Wade was about to become a millionaire.
He signed his first contract with the Miami Heat on Aug. 19, 2003, 10 years ago Monday. It was a three-year deal, worth just over $7 million. His first paycheck was somewhere around $70,000. He spent a day looking at it, mesmerized at how much money was in his hands at one time.
