Among these four, only James (15) has appeared in more All-Star Games than Wade (13), and he was the first of the quartet to win a title too when he was named Finals MVP in Miami's 2006 success.
Dwyane Wade brought a few friends for the occasion.
James' presence is rather interesting in that his Lakers finished up their season in Los Angeles Tuesday evening.
James, who won two National Basketball Association titles with Wade in Miami, two of the three Wade won altogether, was asked about favorite memories of his friendship with Wade.
Heat won 122-99, with Wade scoring 30 points, three assists, and three rebounds. A City Edition gamer from early in the season went for $10,041 in December.

With the Heat already eliminated from the playoffs and a berth secure for the Nets, the game was focused on Wade and some of his good friends made sure they were there to share in the moments.
But then he walked into the tunnel and, after signing autographs and greeting another former teammate, Mike Miller, he exited the court for one last time.
"I didn't get an opportunity to play against Melo this year and exchange jerseys with him", Wade said.
