Wade said that burning desire lingered even throughout the lengthy NBA season.
“Yup. The whole time,” he said. “You'll never forget it. If you're a competitor, you'll never forget it. And it drives you, especially the following year.”
Bosh recalls how that nagging memory motivated him and his teammates.
“It hurts, but you're super motivated to get back going with the season,” Bosh said. “You're motivated for everything. Everything is another chance to take that step to get back to that point. And you know that you have to do more.
“That's the main thing that we were thinking about, like, today we did good but we need more from each other in order to do better. Because we know if we do the same thing that we did last year we're fooling ourselves. So we expect them to be more motivated to do more as a team and (this game) should be a lot of fun.”
