End of an era

All eyes were set at the Staples Center as sports fans watched one final matchup of two of the greatest players ever to put on an NBA uniform.

 

The Miami Heat was in town to play against the LA Lakers which means fans get to witness one last showdown between LeBron James and one of his closest friends, Dwyane Wade. What makes this matchup so epic is that this will be Wade's final time playing an away game for the Heat at the Staples Center. During the offseason, Wade announced that this would be his last year as an NBA player. 

 

The game came down to the last possession as Wade got the ball and James was guarding him. Wade made a move and fired a three-point shot that was way off. James secured the long rebound in which capped off an epic final showdown that Lakers won 108-105.

 

The real moment of the night came when the game ended, and two great competitors became friends and embraced one another like the true champions they are. Yes, you're eyes were sweating, not mine.
