Dwyane Wade and the Heat had classic battles with the Celtics between 2010-2012, and Boston fans remember how the three-time champion used to break their hearts in the playoffs.
But at the end of the day, the Celtics, its players and fans appreciate what Wade has accomplished in the NBA and what he’s done for the game of basketball.
D-Wade will be retiring after this season, and he plans to end it by helping Miami make the playoffs. The Heat are currently in a tight race with the Orlando Magic for the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference, and while they are currently holding the eighth seed at the moment, they are just half a game ahead of Orlando.
The Heat still has six games left and can still climb up to as high as the sixth seed, granting that both the Pistons and the Nets will lose majority of their remaining games. Miami will of course look to avoid a first round match-up with the Milwaukee Bucks, who currently holds the best record in the league.
