Dwyane Wade takes a break from Finals analysis to go to Harvard

BY foxsports • June 12, 2015

Are you wondering why Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was on the NBA Finals broadcast of "NBA Countdown" for Games 2 and 3 but not Game 4? And, if you've looked ahead, why he won't be there for Game 5?

It's because education comes first, as Wade has demonstrated this offseason by attending a fan's high school graduation and hosting a reading playoff for students. So Wade's taking a few days to further his own education -- and he's going to Harvard to do it.

Specifically, Wade's taking part in an "executive-education program" called "The Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports," which sounds right up his alley. You can find out more about the program at its website and apply for next year's seminar, if you're interested. In a nutshell, the program "focuses on the unique challenges of developing, distributing, and marketing a successful entertainment offering." Wade's shown an inclination to broadcasting, obviously, and he was fantastic in his interview with LeBron James following the Cleveland Cavaliers' Game 3 win.

Wade will be back on the Finals broadcast for Game 6.
