Afterward, as the two shared some laughs surrounded by media, Wade told LeBron, "I appreciate you for letting it end here" - here, being L.A., where LeBron just signed in the offseason. A pair of National Basketball Association icons that will go down as rivals, teammates and best friends.
After missing a game-tying 3-pointer, Wade chased after the rebound and embraced James as the final buzzer sounded.
The numbers speak for themselves when it comes to Wade, whose career features more than 1,000 games played and all but 106 coming with the Heat.
He said: "Wade got a video tribute which was 90 seconds long during a time out".
"Man how lucky am i!?"
"His move that he had - the pullback - I was doing that, like, religiously".
"I always thought Pat had this really nice vibe with his guys". So to see him step away from the game is kind of insane for me. I didn't care who won the game. The four-time MVP is putting up 28.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 6.9 assists in his 16th season in the league.

James was instead commenting on the majesty of Madison Square Garden, and how it would be the ideal place to host his final showdown with Wade. After all, there's a whole county "named" after him.
"Same thing with LeBron". They're so many great players in this game.
The three-time National Basketball Association champion acknowledged without the 36-year-old's contribution his career wouldn't have been as glittering as it has.
After leaving the Heat in 2014, he delivered on a promise to bring the Cavs their first championship in franchise history in 2016 before leaving Cleveland for a second time.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are in first place in the Western Conference, however, following their 122-113 win over the Utah Jazz. LeBron and Wade came into the league in the same year and played together during the former's four seasons in Miami, which yielded four consecutive trips to the NBA Finals and two NBA titles.
The 33-year-old James dominates the record books.
The win saw the Lakers improve to 17-10, while Miami slipped to 11-15.
"It was either here or at The Garden", James replied, meaning Madison Square Garden in New York City.
