Dwyane Wade has made sure to go out in style as he brings his Hall of Fame career to a close. On Tuesday, Wade had 30 points in his final home game in a 122-99 win over Philadelphia, giving the Heat crowd plenty of things to cheer about as they sent him into retirement.
However, before he can ride off into the sunset, Wade had one more game on the schedule as Miami visited Brooklyn to take on the Nets. Wade’s best friends in the league all came out for the occasion, as LeBron James, Chris Paul, and Carmelo Anthony were all able to make it and sit courtside to watch his final game.
Wade made sure to give them quite the show, even as the Nets took care of business to lock down the 6-seed in the Eastern Conference. Through three quarters, Wade had a triple-double with 20 points, 10 assists, and 11 rebounds — fittingly, that 10th assist came to long time teammate Udonis Haslem.
Wade played the hits in his final game, showing off the skills that made him one of the greatest shooting guards in league history on both ends of the floor.
It’s awesome to see Wade go out playing well and on his own terms, something not every star is able to do. That he can do it in front of his best friends and family makes it that much sweeter.
