LeBron James, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony hit up Dwyane Wade's final game

He didn't need to worry. Furthermore, Anthony's National Basketball Association future remains uncertain while James and Paul are locked in with the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets respectively.

Appropriately, Wade reached his first triple-double since January 13, 2006, by connecting with longtime teammate Udonis Haslem for a jumper in the final minute of the third quarter. "That's not the way I play". I like playing a competitive game, so this is not the kind of game I wanted to play in. "I still got my drank", he said.

Here's hoping whatever comes next is even half as fun as what Wade and his friends gave us.

Of course they would be there, James said during the game.

So it was fitting that, as he took the court for the last time, they were on hand to witness it.

Now without a team after a disastrous short spell with the Rockets at the start of this season, Anthony trails only James among the four in regular-season games played.

"Listen, we all started this journey together", James told Fox Sports Sun. Now add Anthony and Paul to those teams.

Wade went over to the corner where they were sitting and hugged each before starting his final game before retirement.

If Mike Pence was a Dwayne Wade fan you can sure as heck bet that he's feeling conflicted right about now.

The moment was captured by Miami Herald staff photographer Charles Trainor Jr and shared by the newspaper, who tweeted Chrissy the message: "Let us know if you want a copy of this one". The Nets also clinched their first winning season since 2013-14 by going 34-22 over their last 56 games since December 7. It was cool to see those guys over there. "I've got some brothers that will always be my brothers". Wade is retiring after the game.

Heat won 122-99, with Wade scoring 30 points, three assists, and three rebounds.

Heat: Haslem finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds.

"I mean, we'd be here all night talking".

From that point on, the game devolved into a carnival of sorts.

Wade also celebrated after the game with his wife, actress Gabrielle Union, and singer Justin Timberlake.

Dwayne Wade crashed into Chrissy Teigen and John Legend courtside, sending their drinks flying - and a photographer for the Miami Herald took the ideal shot of the action.

From the time when he gifted money to Merrilyn Beard-Breland after a house fire swallowed up gifts for her grandchildren, to when he dedicated his 2017/18 season to Parkland School shooting victim Joaquin Oliver - Wade touched people's lives in ways he couldn't imagine. "Unfortunately for the organization, our team, we weren't in position to make the playoffs, but I'm happy to say I completed it". But it's been great. He then gave his jersey to Anthony. Obviously, I've talked about this, but Melo was one of the nudges, to help me look at it a different way. "That's the same way I went out in college".

"It was fitting that the last one was him".

Wade's star-studded cast of friends sat court-side and stood up several times to cheer the Heat legend.

"I've been there. In my case though, I didn't really have a choice".
