Celtics’ Ainge presents Wade with Garden parquet

Celtics president Danny Ainge presented Dwyane Wade with a plaque featuring a photo and a piece of the old Boston Garden parquet floor Monday night to commemorate his retirement.

Ainge met with Wade in a TD Garden hallway before the Celtics hosted the Heat in Wade’s final regular-season game in Boston.

“Thank you for your amazing career and inspiration. We’ve all benefited from it,” Ainge told Wade in front of a group of media. “You’ve been a remarkable player, we’ve had some good battles.”

“Yes we have,” Wade said.

Ainge then took a not-too-subtle jab at Wade, bringing up an incident from the 2011 playoffs in which Wade and Rajon Rondo became tangled and Rondo came away with a dislocated elbow. Rondo later said Wade was a dirty player.

“I now forgive you for messing up Rondo’s elbow,” Ainge said.
