Ending a long and ugly legal battle, a Chicago court has awarded Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade sole “care, custody and control” of his two sons, reports the Associated Press, and delivered some harsh words for his ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade.

The boys arrived in Miami on Friday, shortly after the ruling was filed, and Wade told the AP that “a huge weight is off my back.”

“My life changed in a huge way,” he said. “Mentally, I’ve been preparing for it for over a year now. To me, it’s bigger than that. For me, it shows a lot of people that you need to fight to be in your kids’ lives sometimes. You fight until you can’t fight any more. That’s all I was trying to be, a father in his kids’ lives.”

Regarding Wade’s ex-wife, a portion of the 102-page ruling entered by Judge Renee G. Goldfarb read, “This court finds that (Siohvaughn Wade) has embarked on an unstoppable and relentless pattern of conduct for over two years to alienate the children from their father, and lacks either the ability or the willingness to facilitate, let alone encourage, a close and continuing relationship between them.”
