08:06 AM ET 08.24 | To be sure, the injury to Derrick Rose helped clear a path to the Heat's title, but Dwyane Wade, for one, wasn't happy to see it happen. The Heat had the East's No. 2 seed, behind the Bulls, until Chicago lost to the eighth-seeded Sixers in the first round. "You just feel bad for him," Wade said of Rose. "We all deal with injuries and every time you deal with an injury, you hope it's not the big one. You hope it won't end your season. So to see a guy like D-Rose, who was battling injuries all year, minor injuries, and then it took its toll. And it was sad to see." ... Wade insists that, as a fan of basketball, it was tough to watch Rose depart early. "We didn't want to see it and we want to play the Bulls. We want to play the best teams."
