Dwayne Wade and Lebron James played their final game against each other in the Staple Center on Monday night.

This is a bitter-sweet moment that both players have been dreading since Wade announced that this would be he would be retiring at the end of the year.

James spoke to ESPN about the impact that Wade had on his career. “Obviously, without D-Wade in my career, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this résumé that I have,” said James. “Individually, I think I would still be doing my thing individually, but as far as me accomplishing the team goals that truly mean most to me? Twenty-seven wins in a row. Four straight Finals. Two back-to-back championships. It goes without saying. I wouldn’t be able to accomplish it without him.”

Wade had a chance to send the game into overtime, but Lebron was able to force him into a bad shot from the arch.

“He knew my move at the end that stopped me from getting to my shot,” Wade said. “That’s how well we know each other, man. Just two competitors who enjoy the game of basketball, who love each other and love competing. So I’m glad that in my 16 years that we were on the court together, we was in this game, we’ve made a big impact on and off the court.”

It was clearly tough for both players and great moment to witness.
