Dwyane Wade Reacts to Touching Tribute From Spurs

2 Min Read

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade got quite the sendoff in his final game against the San Antonio Spurs.

Prior to the Heat’s victory on Wednesday, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich gave Wade a very special gift. Wade has been swapping jerseys with players after games, so Popovich gave the 13-time All-Star signed jerseys from Spurs legends Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker.

After the game, Wade took to social media to express his gratitude not only to the Spurs organization but also to the fans who cheered him on.

Wade certainly has a lot of history with the Spurs. San Antonio and Miami met in both the 2013 and 2014 NBA Finals, with the Heat winning the first and the Spurs winning the second.

Popovich has coached the Spurs for as long as Wade has been in the league, so the two future Hall of Famers have crossed paths many times.

Wade’s final game against the Spurs was certainly special. Not only did he receive a touching tribute, but he also made a half-court buzzer-beater and sealed the game with a great defensive play.

The three-time champion has announced that he will retire at the end of the season. On the year, Wade is averaging 14.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.
