With the Banana Boat crew by his side, Dwyane Wade bowed out of his final NBA game in style.
After scoring 30 points in his final home game yesterday, Wade turned in another impressive performance, recording a triple-double in the final game of his career at Barclays Center.
Wade poured in 25 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 10 assists in a 113-94 loss to the Brooklyn Nets, the fifth triple-double of his career and his first since 2011.
Fittingly, he brought up the triple-double with an assist to long-time teammate Udonis Haslem.

LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul were courtside at Barclays, supporting Wade in his final game, as the first member of the Banana Boat crew headed into retirement.

"We all started this journey together," James said . "We have a brotherhood that is so much more than basketball. CP [Chris Paul] played last night, we had our last regular season game last night and Melo's right here in New York, so we kind of made the decision to come up here. Listen, we couldn't miss D-Wade's last game."

During the game, Wade even told Paul he was getting a triple-double... then he went out and did.

The Brooklyn crowd soaked in the occasion, giving Wade a rousing ovation as he dribbled out the clock and called time on his storied 16-year career.
