Dwyane Wade and Pat Riley reconnected their frayed relationship at the recent funeral of agent Henry Thomas.
Thomas represented both Wade and Udonis Haslem, along with Chris Bosh, Tim Hardaway and Shaun Livingston.
Thomas was pivotal in the formation of Miami's Big 3 in 2010.
"Hank's still doing his job from above," Haslem said.
Wade is now back with the Heat less than two weeks later.
"The hug that we embraced was real and it was all we needed," Wade said of the brief encounter with Riley at the funeral. "That's it. That's all we both needed. I walked away and I felt better about everything, without even getting into anything."
"For all of you who know me, warriors don't live in the past. Life is now. And the future is waiting," he said on a conference call. "Based on what happened with Dwyane and us the last couple of years, there's no bitterness and no regrets. We've always talked about that. Micky [Arison] is very pro Dwyane. Coach [Erik Spoelstra] is very pro Dwyane. I am. It was a sad day when Dwyane left and it's a beautiful day that he's back."
