LeBron James gets best of final meeting with Dwyane Wade

LeBron James gets best of final meeting with Dwyane Wade”

Since the two likely won't meet on the court again after Wade announced he would retire at the end of the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season, James' comments certainly raised a few eyebrows.

"Bro, just miss it so I can shoot the game-winner", Wade said in the waning seconds of their last game together. LeBron stirred the pot a bit when he was overheard telling Wade "it was either here or the Garden", in reference to the venue for their final showdown.

"It's the end of one of the best movies you could ever see".

Following LeBron James' final matchup against Dwyane Wade at Staples Center on Monday night, the two longtime greats (and former teammates) met for a postgame conversation that was captured by hoards of media.

"Some people say you shouldn't be friends with your competitors because you still can't compete", he added.

"I spent 25 years in Akron, Ohio, that's all I knew, so for me to move down to Miami and him to open up that city for me and my family, and make it so seamless, it just shows what type of guy he is. But even with our friendship, we competed against each other and we pushed each other".

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade faced each other on an National Basketball Association court for the last time Monday night in Los Angeles, and delivered a thrilling final battle.

Kyle Kuzma scored 33 points for the Lakers, who have won 13 of 17 overall and five straight at home.

Wade's wife, Gabrielle Union, was among the fans at courtside as the high-scoring guard played 32 minutes.
