The crowd at AmericanAirlines Arena went nuts when Dwyane Wade finally checked into the game on Friday against the Milwaukee Bucks.

People on social media had plenty to say as well about Wade’s Heat return — or #R3TURN as it was trademarked on Twitter. Comments ranged from thoughts on Wade stepping onto the court for the first time Friday to his lobs that turned into dunks to his three-point basket for his first points back in a Heat jersey to his crucial block in the final minute of the 91-85 win to reminiscing about the first 13 years of Wade’s career in Miami and all the memories that came from it.
