There’s always been a rivalry between former Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce and Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade.

Wade, 37, is in the final year of his amazing career. While he’s not putting up superstar numbers like he did when he was younger, the All-Star is still entertaining fans. During his retirement tour, Wade has been dazzling fans with impressive dunks, buzzer-beaters and shot-making.

The veteran has career averages of 22.0 points, 5.4 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game. On top of that, Wade has three championships, a 2006 Finals MVP trophy and a gold medal.

Pierce, on the other hand, finished his career with averages of 19.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists. While the 2008 champion hammered Wade for having help, Pierce also had multiple All-Stars beside him when he won his sole championship in 2008.
