The final act showed Wade's triumphant return to Miami last season and was narrated by three people: his wife, Union, his longtime teammate, Udonis Haslem, and Pat Riley, who coached and ran the Heat during Wade's entire career.
Dwyane Wade #3 of the Miami Heat reacts during their game against the Charlotte Hornets at Spectrum Center on March 06, 2019 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Anthony did not sign with another National Basketball Association team after his release from the Rockets this season.
After Brooklyn took a 63-47 lead into halftime, Russell hit four three 3-pointers in the first two minutes of the third quarter, including three in a span of 46 seconds, as the Nets extended their lead to 75-50. Now add Anthony and Paul to those teams. The Nets also clinched their first winning season since 2013-14 by going 34-22 over their last 56 games since December 7. "Unfortunately for our organization and our team, we weren't able to put ourselves in a position to win enough games to be in the playoffs, but for what I wanted for this season, I'm happy to say that I completed that".
Of course they would be there, James said during the game. "It's unfortunate that I had the fall". I was looking at retiring before I came back, and he helped nudge me to go on this tour. So Wade gave his final one to him. That was the missing piece out of this whole season.
But then he walked into the tunnel and, after signing autographs and greeting another former teammate, Mike Miller, he exited the court for one last time.
