Before Dwyane Wade finishes up his last and final NBA season, several of the league's legends and stars celebrated his 16-year career to kick off the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend.

With three championships and a Finals MVP award under his belt, Dwyane Wade is ending his 16-year career in the National Basketball Association.

Back in September, the Miami Heat baller announced he would be returning to Miami (from the Chicago Bulls) for a 16th and final NBA season. The 37-year-old, who is the Heat's all-time leading scorer, said it was a hard decision to make, but he had to come to terms with reality. D. Wade was drafted as the No.5 pick in the 2003 NBA draft, and now, he's ending his career the way he wants to...with "One Last Dance."

Last night, several NBA legends, current players, coaches, family and friends gathered together to send him off in epic style during his "One Last Dance" dinner in Charlotte, NC to kick off the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend.

This marks D. Wades 13th and final All-Star Game appearance.

Friends and players - including Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Charles Barkley, Magic Johnson, Miami Heat president Pat Riley, and more - came together to celebrate his illustrious career, both on and off the court.

Melo and CP even presented the Miami Heat legend with his own Hollywood Star - NBA Style!

“People joke about the banana boat, but we more than a banana boat," Melo said during his speech.

Magic Johnson reflected on D. Wade's most memorable championship run when he brought the Miami Heat back from a 0-2 deficit in 2006.

"Your hero was Michael Jordan. Well, you were Michael Jordan in that Dallas series," Magic said about D. Wade.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mrs. Wade also took the stage to deliver a speech (which was funny as hell) to honor her hubby's retirement:

 

 

And baby Kaavia James Union Wade was also in the mix -- still mean mugging and being the cute "shady baby" that she is:

 

Adorbs.

 

"Power" star Lala Anthony was there as her husband's date. They made their reconciliation official with lovey dovey social media posts on Valentine's Day.

 

 

HOT mama.

Notably missing was D. Wade's longtime homie LeBron James. The Lakers played their last game before the break on Tuesday.  By the way, King James/fellow Banana Boat Crew member selected D. Wade in the third round of the All-Star Draft for his team.

The 2019 All-Star Game goes down February 17th at 8pm EST.
