“I was surprised and told Glen Taylor and his wife thank you for this honor,” Wade said. “I appreciate it. I got some nice jerseys, some legendary ones with Garnett, so the collection is definitely nice.”

Wade has just three regular season games left in his career.

It’s a sad reality that is starting to dawn on Heat fans everywhere. What is important now, however, is to cherish the little time fans have left with Wade as a basketball player.

With just one final home game on the docket for Wade and the Heat, it’s sure to be an emotional several days.
