In surprising fashion, KFC in a open letter offered Wade a job he can’t refuse.
“It goes without saying we’d love to have you back on our team dishing out the World’s Best Chicken, like you dish out assists on the court,” it said.
““Come serve as an honorary captain at a local KFC drive-thru window. And while we can’t match your most recent salary, we’ll honor your KFC service by making a donation in your name to Colonel’s Scholars, a charity providing young people with much needed scholarships.”
The company said while he can’t match his most recent salary, it could share some of Colonel Sanders’ secrets to making buckets.
