Two legends are ending their career with their beloved franchises, Dirk Nowitzki with the Dallas Mavericks and Dwyane Wade with the Miami Heat. Today was the last day they would face off against each other.
Dirk is a one time NBA Champion, a finals MVP, and a winner of the regular season MVP. His Finals win and loss both came against Wade and the Miami Heat.
Dwyane Wade, on the other hand, beat Dirk once in 2006 winning his first NBA Championship and winning Finals MVP. Later LeBron James joined Wade, they lost to the Mavericks once during that time. Wade is a three time NBA Champion.
Both superstars have been exchanging jerseys with opponents after games and today was extra special exchanging jerseys with each other.
Both will play in the NBA All-Stat game in Charlotte this week as added “honorable” reserves.
