Dwyane Wade’s feelings regarding the death of Trayvon Martin are no secret. The Miami Heat all-star wrote “We Want Justice” on his shoe for a game and organized a team photo, along with teammate LeBron James, honoring the life of Martin. Wade also tweeted a picture of himself wearing the now-iconic hoodie.
