Sideline Photo Of Dirk Nowitzki, Dwyane Wade Is Going Viral

Wade, who is retiring after this 16th and final National Basketball Association season, was recently named to his 13th All-Star Game as he and Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki, in his 21st season with Dallas, were made special roster additions by commissioner Adam Silver.

Nowitzki reflected on their relationship on Tuesday and discussed the "frosty" tone over a decade ago.

Instead, the National Basketball Association legends who are likely in their final seasons (Wade has announced this is it; Nowitzki hasn't) prefer to dwell on the longtime rivalry that ensued between Wade's Miami Heat and Nowitzki's Dallas Mavericks. "I'll cherish that jersey knowing the great competition we had for such a long time". There was some stuff said we both didn't like, but at the end of the day, we're both competitors. A lot of memories here for me. "We are all family and I'm happy for him".

Nowitzki reached his first NBA Finals in 2006 and lost after the Mavs blew a 2-0 lead, losing four straight to Wade and the Heat in what was perhaps the most painful loss of his career. "I've never really done a jersey swap on the floor, so I". It's moments where you go through this, for me this last dance, there's certain games that they are games. "So, I'm just thankful that he didn't turn me down and say no, so I appreciate it". Then there are certain ones that are a little bit more special. "We played against the Spurs every year in the playoffs, and I didn't love them guys either". "I had fun with tonight".

"There are not many players who can do that correctly, and he (Luka) is doing a fantastic job". They happened to substitute into the game together, and the Dallas crowd cheered them, of course.

In reality, Wade didn't need to worry about Nowitzki turning him down. There was an especially memorable sequence featuring the two legends, with Wade swishing a corner 3-pointer over Nowitzki on one end and Nowitzki hitting a turnaround jumper after posting up Wade on the ensuing possession. "They are both winners, but humble winners. Fans root for that".
