It's still taking some time for the reality to set in; Dwyane Wade does not play for the Miami Heat.
Having made his bow for the Chicago Bulls in a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, his former franchise took their first steps without the man who served them for 13 years.
The South Beach organisation played their opening pre-season game last night against the Washington Wizards and began the post-Wade era with a win.
The future belongs to young trio Hassan Whiteside, Josh Richardson and Justise Winslow, but one of the priorities was to ensure they had a strong enough backcourt to remain in playoff contention in the Eastern Conference.
Former Oklahoma City Thunder man Dion Waiters was drafted in as the replacement, of sorts, for Wade and the shooting guard showed his ability against the Bucks.
Having lost a significant amount of weight since moving to the Sunshine State, Waiters produced his best D-Wade impression with two vicious cuts to the basket on his way to 12 points.
Wearing number 11, he shot 6-10 from the field and dished out eight assists for his teammates. With so much on the line for Waiters this season, expect him to be in contention for the Most Improve Player award.
