Wade's best friends were in attendance for his final game.
Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade has been on a farewell tour this season and it finally came to a close on Wednesday night as his team took on the Brooklyn Nets. Unfortunately for Wade, his final game ended with a 113-94 loss, although Wade was able to pick up a triple-double. The Heat superstar received standing ovations from the Nets fans and was shown a ton of respect throughout the game. Perhaps the best thing all night though was Wade's cheering section which consisted of LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Paul.
After the game, reporters spoke to LeBron about why he felt it was so important to support D-Wade in his final game.
"Listen, we all started this journey together," James said according to ESPN. "Obviously, CP came into the league a couple years after us, but we have a brotherhood that is just so much more than basketball. CP played last night, we had our last regular-season game last night and Melo is right here in New York, so we kind of made the plan and made the decision to come up here."
Wade was clearly emotional after the game and explained what it meant to have such great friends in attendance.
"Obviously, it means a lot [to have them here]," Wade said. "They know that I will always be there for them, especially in a moment like this. No matter what I'm doing, I will be there for their last game. It was cool to see those guys over there. I'm glad they came, but at the same time I wish they weren't here because the whole time they kept telling me to shoot, shoot, shoot. But it was great. We've got a brotherhood. Those are my brothers."
The Heat have been eliminated from playoff contention so Wade's career has officially come to an end.
