Mario Chalmers might not be on the Miami Heat anymore, but that doesn't mean the guard -- traded last week to the Memphis Grizzlies after seven seasons and two titles in South Florida -- is forgotten.
Look at Monday night. Chalmers broke out (29 points on 13 shots in 23 minutes of a 122-114 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder), and after a big 3-pointer, Dwyane Wade chimed in, unprompted, on Twitter.

Then, proving he wasn't just having a good time watching an animated movie about macaws with his kids, Wade sent this one out after the game:

Teammates for life.
NBA players are just as excited about the season returning as you are (and so is Taylor Swift, apparently!)
If you're excited for the 2015-16 NBA season, which started Tuesday night when the Chicago Bulls faced (and beat) the Cleveland Cavaliers, you aren't alone. NBA players were a little jazzed as well and tweeted just like you and me.
Take Dwyane Wade, for instance:
All right, we don't all get to take photos with Taylor Swift holding up our team's jersey. But a lot of NBA players did share their happiness at the return of basketball.

Carmelo Anthony? You know he was pumped to watch some basketb -- oh come on, New York Knicks. You had to make Tuesday night movie night?
While they were both with the Miami Heat, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James -- like many teammates throughout the league do -- created their share of elaborate handshakes.
Even though LeBron is gone, Wade hasn't stopped with these creative displays of dap. He doesn't restrict them to the basketball court, either.
As revealed by actress Gabrielle Union on a recent "Conan" appearance (and briefly seen in their full wedding video released in September) she and her husband punctuated their nuptials with a handshake of their own:
As a bonus, Union revealed to Conan O'Brien that Chris Bosh is basically Kramer to Wade and Union's Jerry Seinfeld, all because the couple have a "Ms. Pac-Man" game in their house.
"He's addicted," Union said. "He lives a few doors down, and like 2 a.m. [the doorbell will ring and I'll say], 'Is it Chris? ... Is it Chris Bosh?' ... He'll be at the front door, wanting in, to get on the game."
No word on if Bosh punctuates his visits with this handshake.
