Over the last two weeks, the world has mourned the death of Prince -- the artist the New York Times called "a sex symbol, a musical prodigy and an artist who shaped his career his way, often battling with accepted music-business practices" in its obituary.

Prince, who defied genres in his music, said in a 2012 radio interview that Dwyane Wade was his favorite player. The message had Wade feeling grateful.
