Donovan Mitchell and Dwyane Wade

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. A look back at an iconic career.

Dwyane Wade played his final game in the National Basketball Association on Wednesday night which marks the end of an era in the National Basketball Association.

Yesterday, a moving Budweiser ad focused on Wade's incredible off-court achievement put us all in our feelings. Joe Harris has averaged 15.4 points and 5.2 rebounds while shooting 53.1 percent over the last 10 games for Brooklyn.

"Special night", Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said.

Usually, the only games that result in the willingness by some people to pay outrageous prices are championship events such as the NBA Finals or the Super Bowl.

He was loudly cheered from the moment he emerged alone from the tunnel for pregame layups.

Along the way, he's become one of the most popular figures in the history of Miami sports and is widely considered the best player in franchise history.

But there was no keeping Wade down for long.

"I am very hopeful that he will be around a lot later on", Spoelstra said. "I've seen him go into his bag of tricks so many times and just compartmentalize. But he's cut from a different cloth".

Yes, there was a game, with a final score of Brooklyn Nets 113, Miami Heat 94.

Miami - who were eliminated from the postseason race despite Tuesday's win over the Philadelphia 76ers - entered Wednesday with a 39-42 record, tied with the Charlotte Hornets for ninth in the Eastern Conference standings.

"I will never forget the game victor he hit in 2004 against the Utah Jazz", Spoelstra said. He finished with 23,165.

Nets Injuries: Allen Crabbe: out (knee), DeMarre Carroll: out (wrist), Joe Harris: day to day (foot). At the end of each game, he would swap jerseys with a player on the opposing team. So everything worked out great, with him being here, and being able to give him my jersey.

The Nets are now slated for a first-round matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers, but that could change based on what happens in their game tonight, and Orlando's game.
