LeBron James, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony attend Dwyane Wade’s final game

Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki

But that was secondary to a last chance to celebrate Wade, the three-time National Basketball Association champion who was ending his 16th and final National Basketball Association season. Nor will it be up for auction-at least not anytime soon.

Wade would play 36 minutes in his last game, but they were an active 36 minutes, as he took 28 shots and made 10 of them en route to a 25-point, 11-rebound, 10-assist performance to close out his career.

Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and LeBron James, from left, watch during the first half of an NBA basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Miami Heat, Wednesday, April 10, 2019, in NY.

That's the infamous Banana Boat crew, including former teammate LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, both of whom were drafted the same year as Wade.

Should it ever come to auction, it's likely the jersey would sell for at least a high five-figure price tag, perhaps significantly more.

With the Heat already eliminated from the playoffs and a berth secure for the Nets, the game was focused on Wade and some of his good friends made sure they were there to share in the moments. Fans - egged on at one point by Paul and Anthony - chanted "We want Wade!"

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

There was one last Banana Boat cruise for old times' sake as Dwyane Wade took the court for the final time as a player Wednesday night.

Scored 30 points in his final home game on Tuesday. So everything worked out great, with him being here, and being able to give him my jersey. "I thank you guys for dancing with me this year". I was looking at retiring before I came back, and he helped nudge me to go on this tour.

Wade's star-studded cast of friends sat court-side and stood up several times to cheer the Heat legend. "I haven't wavered at one point at all".

"I think everybody knows that this is for real, and I won't be making a comeback".
