To celebrate the ending of his 15th regular season in the NBA, Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade drank champagne in the Heat’s locker room while speaking to reporters after the team’s 116-109 win over the Toronto Raptors.
Wade explained that he wasn’t the only Heat player to drink champagne after the game.
“Me and UD [Udonis Haslem] celebrated our 15th year together. This is just me and UD, this is the vets celebrating the end of a regular season of our 15th year,” said Wade. “It really means something every time you complete a season, especially as you get up there. We in the back, both of us a little tipsy. We drank a lot.”
The 36-year-old has been a key piece off the Heat’s bench since the team traded for him on Feb. 8. In the 21 games Wade played for the Heat this season, he averaged 12.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game.
The Heat, who won the Southeast Division with a record of 44-38, begin their playoff journey against the third-seeded Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday at 8:00 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by ESPN.
