Dwyane Wade Gets Emotional in Speech Before Last NBA Game

Dwyane Wade and Miami Heat

Dwyane Wade and Miami Heat

Despite the win, the Heat's playoff hopes were squashed with the Detroit Pistons beating the Memphis Grizzlies 100-93, leaving them a game back in the 10th seed, with the Pistons owning the tie-breaker. In September, the 37-year-old announced he's retiring from the National Basketball Association after the team finishes its current season.

Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce created an internet firestorm Friday when he said that he had a better playing career than Dwyane Wade. I think that's the one thing. This city means everything to me.

Wade checked into the game in with the fourth quarter alongside Udonis Haslem, the only other player to play on all three of the Heat's champioship teams. Wade's oldest son Zaire stood next to him as he addressed the packed crowd on Tuesday (April 9), telling them, "Man, you're going to make me cry before this game". Man, I love you guys.
