LeBron in crowd for Wade's final National Basketball Association game

As Dwyane Wade played out his final National Basketball Association game when the Miami Heat visited the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center, he received a visit from his old pals - none other than LeBron James, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony.

With close friends LeBron James, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony leading the cheers from their courtside seats, Wade had his fifth career triple-double in three quarters.

TOP PERFORMERS: D'Angelo Russell leads the Nets averaging 2.8 made 3-pointers and scoring 21.1 points per game while shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc. On Tuesday, in his final home game in front of the Heat fans, Wade gave them one more reminder. It was the Nets' ninth sellout of the season. And I gotta believe Pierce would be laughing if he saw this.

Miami - who were eliminated from the postseason race despite Tuesday's win over the Philadelphia 76ers - entered Wednesday with a 39-42 record, tied with the Charlotte Hornets for ninth in the Eastern Conference standings. Anthony, who helped persuade Wade to return this season, didn't play long this season before parting ways with Houston.

The former Stoke City player was awarded a rare start by head coach Thomas Tuchel who opted to rest wonderkid Kylian Mbappe. At the time he was being widely mocked on Twitter, Choupo did at least attempt to explain what exactly he was trying to do.

"It was fitting", Wade said afterward, according to ESPN's Tim Bontemps.

Ahead of this momentous occasion, Budweiser released a fantastic video entitled "This Bud's for 3" that highlights what Wade has done off the court.

The Nets are now slated for a first-round matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers, but that could change based on what happens in their game tonight, and Orlando's game.
