Wade told ESPN's Tim Bontemps the city of Miami "means everything to me" after he scored 30 points in his last game at American Airlines Arena. Because it is a big change.
It's gross, frankly. It's not tear-jerking, even if we do have a greater respect for how Wade has changed the lives of those folks and by implication, many more. Though Pierce was one of the game's best players while he was with the Celtics, Wade's accomplishments outshine Pierce's and it's hard to pinpoint a way in which one could logically say Pierce had the better career.
Wade will close out his career Wednesday night when the Heat head to Brooklyn, New York for their final game of the season against the Nets.
The tear-inducing film features special surprises that include his mom Jolinda Wade and Andrea Oliver, the sister of Joaquin Oliver, a Parkland shooting victim who was a big D. Wade fan.
The moment was captured by Miami Herald staff photographer Charles Trainor Jr. and shared by the newspaper, who tweeted Chrissy the message: "Let us know if you want a copy of this one". "I think it helps me to know that I have a friend, a brother in Dwyane Wade". "Because I'm just trying to win".
Wade is retiring at the end of this season. "And I haven't been in that space in a long time". "And when my son came out, I was so happy for him and happy for us as parents". I'm happy with the extra additions to my life. So I'm excited about it.
"I'm truly amazed that he was able to perform at that level tonight", Spoelstra said. But, I want to do a little bit of everything. "I'm so used to being great at something". "I'm very grateful like everyone else in Miami and the organization to have been part of a night like that".
He was almost certain that in the final moments of his National Basketball Association career, he won't let his emotions get the best of him.
