Daily Wrap: How D-Wade Can Make The Playoffs, Giannis Turns Down Space Jam 2 And Did AD Just Troll The Pelicans?

dwyane wade basketball forever

Dwyane Wade will play his last ever regular season game in Miami tonight, and man, it’s going to be more emotional than when Dom and Brian parted ways at the end of Furious 7.

Adding to tonight’s drama is that barring a minor miracle, it will also be Wade’s last game in Miami ever, with the Heat a full game out of the eight-seed and just two days of action remaining.

Here’s what needs to happens for Wade to score one last postseason run:

-Miami beats Philadelphia and Brooklyn.

-Detroit loses to Memphis and New York

-Charlotte loses to either Cleveland or Orlando.

It’s not impossible, it’s just very unlikely.

So, enjoy these last two regular season Wade games while you can, because they might be all we have.
