Lakers Legend Kobe Bryant reacts to Heat star Dwyane Wade’s homage after game-winner vs. Warriors

Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Heat, Lakers

Former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant could turn it on when it mattered. He had ice in his veins and would come up clutch when his team needed it.

That is exactly what Dwyane Wade did for the Miami Heat in their win over the Golden State Warriors. In his words, Wade stepped up and got in his ‘Mamba Mentality.’

That is how it goes among all-time greats. Wade threw Kobe some respect, so Mamba threw it right back in Wade’s direction. The killer part is the hashtag: last dance.

For 16 seasons Wade has been a force at the shooting guard position, mostly for the Heat. However, his time in the NBA is coming to an end. This is Dwyane Wade’s last dance.

We are not too far removed from Kobe’s farewell tour. He received love from the masses as he made his final 82 game circuit around the country, all culminating in his 60 points sendoff against the Utah Jazz in 2016.

Wade will get his final game in Brooklyn against the Nets on April 10. His last time taking the court in Miami will be the day before against the Philadelphia 76ers. Those will be two emotional games in a row.

What Mamba showed is the ability to step up when those emotions are running high. Against the Warriors, Wade proved he could do the exact same thing. So, when the emotions run high on back to back nights in April, watch out for Wade to come alive one last time before he hangs up his shoes for good.
