Dwyane Wade rents out Waffle House for teammates, befriends Uber driver

If Dwyane Wade can't help his teammates on the court, treating them to a private sitting at Waffle House seems like a solid alternative.

That's precisely what the Chicago Bulls' veteran guard did prior to Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic,a contest Wade was forced to miss with an ailing thigh. Shortly after the Bulls landed in Florida on Tuesday, Wade posted a series of Snapchat videos inside the breakfast diner with teammates Jerian Grant and Rajon Rondo.

"My teammates said they want to go to Waffle House, so I rented out Waffle House," Wade said in the video. "I usually don't eat Waffle House or eat like this, but sometimes, you know, you gotta do what the guys do."

The fun didn't stop there, as Wade documented a surprised Uber driver who picked him up from the restaurant. The driver revealed his fandom for the Miami Heat, Wade's old team, and proved it to the 12-time All-Star by showing him a cell phone photo taken with former Heat center Alonzo Mourning.

Wade, who is averaging 18.9 PPG, 4.6 APG and 4.0 RPG in his 14th NBA season, wrote "Gotta love real fans" across one of the videos he recorded in the Uber.
