So dope to be able to compete against one of the best players to ever play this game. The coldest part was being able to call you a teammate, I got to see first hand how GREAT you really are fam. Appreciate the game you’ve given me and the inspiration you’ve given all of us who play this game killa @dwyanewade #OneLastDance #Flash
Thomas and Wade both played on the Cleveland Cavaliers last season before the deluge of pre-deadline trades the Cavs made. Thomas was sent to the Los Angeles Lakers, and Wade was of course sent back to Miami.
Thomas has yet to play a game so far this season, as he is still recovering from hip surgery that he underwent last season. Still, it seems he made sure to have a jersey on hand following Tuesday night’s matchup between the Heat and Nuggets so that he could take part in a jersey swap that has now become customary for Wade following each game.
Wade and the Heat will face off against the Nuggets again in just over a month, on Feb. 11. Hopefully, Thomas will be back on the court by then so that he can face off against Wade one more time before the three-time NBA champion calls it a career.
