Lebron James and Dwayne Wade are best friends. But on Tuesday night, Wade decided not let Lebron get the better of him.
Wade and Lebron met up for the last time during the regular season in American Airline Arena. When James attacked the rim in his first possession back on the floor, Wade sent his shot packing right into the stands.

Wade has nothing but respect for Lebron and spoke about it before the game.
“This is as good as I’ve seen him,” Wade said. “I thought when he was here there was a point in time when he was shooting 60 percent from the field and I was like, ‘This is the best he’s going to be. This is as good as it gets.’ He’s continued to prove everybody wrong that he finds new levels. In his 15th season, to be 33 years of age and to be playing the way he’s playing, as consistent as he’s playing, that is as impressive as anything that anybody has ever done.”
Wade and James won two NBA championships together and led the Heat to four consecutive NBA Finals from 2010 to 2014.
