Kevin Hart (L) presents at CinemaCon 2016 in Las Vegas on April 13, 2016. Chicago Bulls' Dwyane Wade looks on during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers Saturday, Nov. 19, 2016, in Los Angeles.

One the eve of tip-off for the Philadelphia 76ers' 2018-19 season, the team's biggest fan is still getting heat for his antics during last season's playoffs.

The Sixers knocked off the Miami Heat 4-1 in a physical series that wouldn't even have been close had it not been for aging superstar Dwyane Wade, who tormented Philadelphia in crucial situations.

If you'll recall, Kevin Hart was in Wade's ear like a gnat throughout the Miami series, not that it affected Wade's performance. 

Wade, who will rejoin Miami for another season, apparently never forgot about Hart's antics. He finally exacted a little revenge over the weekend. Joined by wife Gabrielle Union, Wade presented Hart with a youth-sized jersey.

Hart and Wade have been longtime friends. The comedian attended Wade's wedding and later described how all of the guests were given binoculars to see Union approaching from a distant hill.

The dig at Hart's stature may have landed, but the truth is Hart recently had a baby boy who will grow into the Wade jersey right around the time Wade is no longer playing basketball.

The Sixers will open their season Tuesday night in Boston at 8 pm on TNT.
