The Miami Heat brotherhood is strong.
After the Heat retired Chris Bosh’s jersey on Tuesday night, former teammate Dwyane Wade congratulated the two-time champion on Instagram with a thoughtful and emotional post.
Wade, 37, played alongside Bosh for six seasons with the Heat.
The pair, along with superstar LeBron James, went to four straight NBA Finals and multiple All-Star games, and won back-to-back championships in 2012 and 2013.
Although Bosh’s career was cut short due to blood clots, the big man was one of the best players in the NBA when he did suit up.
In his 13 seasons in the league, the power forward averaged 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.
While Bosh didn’t get to end his playing career the way he wanted, Wade is certainly going out on his own terms.
The 6-foot-4 shooting guard is putting up 14.4 points, 4.1 assists and 3.8 assists per game in his final season in the league.
