Wade, the greatest player in Heat history, played his final home game in Miami on Tuesday night. Budweiser has released an emotional video tribute to him online.
It ended with the ultimate tribute to the completeness of Wade's game, a triple-double completed before the start of the fourth quarter, the fifth triple-double of Wade's 16-season career and first since February 2011 - 25 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists.
The 13-time All-Star and three-time National Basketball Association champion will hang up his jersey Wednesday. He made 10 of 28 shots, and his last points were a 3-pointer with 2:48 remaining.
Wade had already marked his last home appearance with a 30-point game earlier in the week. Before leaving the court, he embraced teammates on the floor, then hugged coach Erik Spoelstra and waved to the crowd. It's a fun and touching tradition, because Wade doesn't just get souvenirs from his fellow players, he also gives a part of himself to them.
Appropriately, Wade reached his first triple-double since January 13, 2006, by connecting with longtime teammate Udonis Haslem for a jumper in the final minute of the third quarter.
Brooklyn (41-40) will face either third-seeded Philadelphia or second-seeded Toronto in the first round of the playoffs. The Brooklyn Nets have won two consecutive games and are 41-40 on the season.
Brooklyn's addition of Pinson brings its roster to 15 men, which is the maximum number allowed.
