Two of the most storied careers in modern NBA history came to a conclusion Wednesday night with both Dirk Nowitzki and Dwyane Wade playing in their final NBA games.

For those of us who were too young to appreciate the greatness of Michael Jordan, these two represented a new brand of basketball. Ambassadors in every way and true role models, they helped create an interesting post-Jordan NBA.

As the two future first-ballot Hall of Famers were closing up shop on their careers, two former United States Presidents took time out of their days to pay their respects.

Bill Clinton, the 42nd president, sent out two different tweets paying homage to Wade and Dirk.

While Wade has enjoyed the full farewell treatment this season complete with jersey swaps and gifts from rivals, Nowitzki has played sparingly off the Dallas Mavericks bench in relative anonymity as the spotlight in Dallas has shone on star rookie Luka Doncic.
