Dwyane Wade and LeBron James dominated the NBA landscape for 16 years. They played each other 30 times in that span (never in the playoffs), only to fittingly enter Monday's final meeting tied 15-15. Those clashes sandwiched a four-year run as teammates that included four straight Finals and two championship trophies.

LeBron James helped usher Dwyane Wade into the sunset by locking him down in the waning seconds of their final NBA matchup and forcing him into a 3-point circus shot that didn't fall.
LeBron James won the final instalment of his long rivalry with Dwyane Wade on Monday, scoring 28 points as the Los Angeles Lakers held on for a 108-105 victory over the Miami Heat at the Staples Center. James and Wade, who arrived in the NBA together as part of a star-studded draft in 2003, have formed one of basketball's most famous rivalries and closest friendships over the course of their careers. Former team-mates at the Miami Heat, where the duo won back-to-back NBA championships in 2012 and 2013, the two faced each other for the last time on Monday with Wade retiring after the 2018 season.
The focus on Monday wasn’t on the game. It was on the two NBA greats facing off one last time before Wade retires at the end of the season, as it should have been. Once the game ended, Wade and James embraced instantly.
