Farewell, Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki


To hall of famers went out on the same night tonight. Dwayne Wade playing his final game for the Miami Heat. Guess we showed up he didn't realize they're going to be there his boys Carmelo Anthony. Chris Paul LeBron James. They all were there courtside is he messed around and had a triple double in his final game NBA career Dirk Nowitzki playing his final game for the Dallas Mavericks got a big hug in a conversation. From Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs had everybody heaping on Twitter when they saw that kind of reaction. Dwayne Wade had a chance to talk about what it means to not only retire but doing at the same time during the Bisky to you know, to be able to, you know, be insane breakfast one integrates in the Dirk play way more years than me and. He was great before I start planning NBA. And you know, so I've been watching him for a while. And to be able to to you know, to be in a situation where hopefully one day we both can be Springfield together at the same time. You know, I it would be pretty cool, you know, especially because careers along together from the championship standpoint, you know, of us being dollars dollars knows and what that did for our careers.

For that. I mean, the fact that I was watching the national title game here Minneapolis on Monday night. And there was a significant stretch of that game between Texas Tech in Virginia where there was no true big man on the floor. I mean, that's how important spacing is becoming in basketball.
