Dwyane Wade is the greatest Heat player ever. (LeBron James was a better player, but he was not as important to the franchise as Wade.)

Friday night, Wade was welcomed back as a champion should be in his return to the Heat after the deadline trade that sent him from Cleveland to Miami. When Wade checked in during the first half (he came off the bench) the roof was blown off the American Airlines Arena.

It got louder when Wade hit his first bucket.
