Brooklyn Nets vs. Miami Heat Live Game Thread: First, we say goodbye to D-Wade

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Brooklyn Nets (41-40) vs. Miami Heat (39-42)

WHAT: The final game of the regular season - finally - as the Nets get ready for the playoffs. But first, they send-off one of the all-time greats, D-Wade, in the final game of his career.

WHERE: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY

WHEN: 8:00 p.m. EST


THE STORY: Game Preview

Player to Watch: It’s Dwyane Wade. Who else? We get to watch a legend play in his final game, and it’s truly disappointing he couldn’t have gone out on a better team. He’s played surprisingly well this season after looking pretty washed in Cleveland. Also, wild he played in Chicago. Does anyone really remember that happening? It was him, Jimmy Butler, Rondo, and Taj Gibson. I cannot believe that happened for a whole season.

Anyway, Wade is a legend, a three-time champion, an MVP, a Finals MVP, a Miami legend, and so much more. He’ll never get the credit or recognition that Kobe does, but for a while there they were a lot closer in talent than plenty of basketball fans would probably be willing to admit. Wade is going to go down as one of the best two-guards in NBA history, and it’ll be special watching him play on an NBA court one last time. Enjoy retirement Dwyane.
