Dwyane Wade had some superstar fans on hand for his final National Basketball Association game.
Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce, however, feels quite differently about this topic, advocating that his career was better than Wade's.
Wade was unable to attend because Miami Heat had a game against Toronto but he made sure to show his support for Zion on Instagram. Wade spent the bulk of his 16 years in the league with the Heat, playing one season with the Chicago Bulls before then moving on for one half of the 2017-18 campaign with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Dwyane Wade's final appearance in front of Miami Heat's supporters ended in victory as they beat the Philadelphia 76ers 122-99, and afterwards the 37-year-old shooting guard bid farewell to the crowd at the American Airlines Arena after the game.

Becker: Final Four weekend showed off key strengths of women's basketball
But previous year was about a lot more than losses on the court. "We just beat the defending national champions". In the falling confetti of Baylor's third women's basketball title, families embraced the players.
Wade scored the first basket of the game on a dunk, Philadelphia scored the next eight - and it was all Miami the rest of the way. Wade's family, son Zaire and wife Gabrielle Union, also took offense to Pierce's comments and wasted little time in attacking Pierce on social media.
With all attention on Dwyane Wade in the Miami Heat's season finale on Tuesday, a handful of different groups trotted out honorary tributes. He has a lengthy list of achievements and will go down as one of the best to ever play the game.
Wade did not disappoint, as he exited in style. DeMarre Carroll will sit out due to a sprained right wrist while Harris - who leads the National Basketball Association in 3-point shooting percentage - is questionable because of a sore right foot. The trio traveled to Brooklyn to see Wade off one last time. Yet, in the postseason, while Wade's on-court plus-minus remained the same (+4.0) his on-off plus-minus dropped to -2.7. Part of that final group including a tribute video from Wade's son, Zaire Wade, and it was pitch flawless.
It's a great ad. People from various walks of life who have been positively impacted by Wade come out to meet the man face to face and tell him what he's meant to them.
