There are few duos in NBA history more iconic than LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, the two longtime friends who teamed up for four years in Miami and won two championships together.

Wade is in the midst of his final season having already announced that he will retire at the conclusion of the year. On Sunday, he appeared in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game as a designated legacy addition by commissioner Adam Silver, allowing him to team up with LeBron for one final time.

James, who is the first All-Star for the Lakers since Kobe Bryant in his final season, drafted the eventual winning team as the leading vote-getter. But the most iconic moment in the game was Wade throwing up one last alley-oop for James, reminiscent of their most memorable play together:

After the game, LeBron spoke about what that moment meant to him:

James finished the game with 19 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Wade added seven points and four assists in the 178 to 164 Team LeBron win.
