Happy birthday to Dwyane Wade!

The three-time NBA champion turns 35 today, making five-years-until-40 look better than most fellas of the same age.

With his Chicago Bulls hosting the Dallas Mavericks tonight at the United Center, it's a good thing that D. Wade got in some quality time with wife Gabrielle Union this past weekend.

Here, wishes D. Wade a happy birthday by checking out how the Bulls made the hoops legend their focal point for tonight's game, his bedroom pics with Gabby and some of our favorite photos of the NBA superstar through the years.

May this year be another great one for you!

    Style points.

  6. Roasted On Snapchat

    Because sometimes, the most memorable pics are material for the best dragging and online slander. What was he thinking?

    He's made mommy real proud over the years.

  10. Brothers

    Brothers beyond basketball.

  11. Bigger Than Basketball

    Wade opened up the 2016 ESPYs with his band of basketball brothers — LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul — as they called on their fellow athletes to spark positive change in their communities and to denounce violence against unarmed Black men and also call for an end to racial profiling by police. Special moment.

  12. The Infamous Banana Boat

    This will always be ingrained in the minds of hoop fans. You can't unsee it.
