Share

Wade, the greatest player in Heat history, played his final home game in Miami on Tuesday night.

Wade will conclude his National Basketball Association career as a three-time National Basketball Association champion, former Finals MVP and scoring champion and the franchise leader in most Heat categories, including points, assists and games played.

Heat AnalysisThe Miami Heat dropped four consecutive games that put them out of playoff contention, but they were able to get a big win last night in Miami in Dwyane Wade's curtain call in Wade County.

While lacking the emotion of Tuesday night's 30-point tour de force at AmericanAirlines Arena, it was a closing time that proved deeply personal, one shared with the closest of friends.

Bam Adebayo finished the game with 19 points and nine rebounds, Justise Winslow added 16 and Hassan Whiteside came off the bench for 15 points and nine rebounds.

Wade's teammates also honored him in a video on the legacy he will leave behind in the Heat organization.

With retirement looming in a few days, Wade will walk away with 3 NBA titles, 1 Finals MVP award, and 13 All-Star Game appearances as well as being chosen twice for the All-NBA First team, and 3 times for the All NBA Defensive team.

"I will never forget the game victor he hit in 2004 against the Utah Jazz", Spoelstra said.

To Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, Wade's "One Last Dance" season proved inspirational. "Dwyane did that brilliantly".
