A lot of people were shocked when Dwyane Wade signed with the Chicago Bulls this summer after spending all 13 seasons of his career with the Miami Heat where he won three championships.

In a new spot by Gatorade, Wade shows that you can leave your home, but your home never really leaves you. The ad focuses on a young Wade drowning out the world around him with basketball.

"People ask me why I came back," says Wade in the spot. "I'm here to return what the game has given to me."

And he's not just talking about giving back on the basketball court. Wade is focused on helping unite the community and create better future for kids like himself, who are growing up in Chicago.
