Dwyane Wade Announces Return to the Heat in the Coolest Way Possible

Dwyane Wade is officially back with the Miami Heat, and he decided to make the announcement in the coolest way possible.

Heat fans are still mostly livid over LeBron James' departure. Especially with the way he did it -- via an article in Sports Illustrated that never mentions Heat fans, and then with taking to social media with the hashtag #LaFamilia.

Since Friday, that hashtag has come to mean, more than anything, LeBron's close friends and entourage and not Cavaliers fans or even his own immediate family. It's a hashtag that has fueled resentment and anger throughout Miami Heat Nation, given the recent reports that it was LeBron's "familia" that staged his departure from the get-go.

But on Tuesday afternoon, Wade took to Instagram and introduced his own hashtag: #HeatLifer
