In what was be the final matchup in their historic careers, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James battled it out in a game that would not disappoint.

After spending four years together in Miami and winning two NBA championships, LeBron and Wade became close friends who always pushed each other to be great. Spending hours together perfecting their game, from the NBA to the USA Olympic Basketball team, these two have a long and successful history of playing together.
Both drafted to the league in 2003, LeBron and Wade have been friends and competitors since their early NBA days. Finally, at the twilight of his career, Wade posted an emotional tribute to the very man that helped create one of the greatest teams in recent NBA history, the 2010-2014 Miami Heat.
It will be sad to no longer see these two share the court, but last night provided just one last memory for NBA fans of two legends of the game squaring up for one last time.

Shot clock running down, the ball in Wade's hands with LeBron guarding him, does it get any more nostalgic?
