As Wade contemplates future, Father Prime does it all to bring Heat home-court advantage

4:33 AM ET

PHILADELPHIA — Dwyane Wade sat alone, wrapping his 36-year-old knees in ice long after the Miami Heat practiced Sunday afternoon at Temple University. The media throng that covers the Heat seemed more focused on Hassan Whiteside‘s virtual no-show in the first game of this playoff series against the 76ers and the adjustments the team would have to make for this series to be competitive.

Wade’s paltry 19 minutes in Game 1 didn’t even register as a significant storyline at this stage in his career. That’s about what he had been playing since rejoining the Heat after a midseason trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Anything more he could give them than that was seen as a bonus, not something the Heat could count on.

Fellow Heat lifers Alonzo Mourning and Juwan Howard each came over to him as he worked on his knees and stopped for a conversation. Wade will be joining them as Heat emeriti soon enough. Always welcome around the team, always a part of the family
