The Miami Heat have a special connection with each other, especially LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Wade, who helped recruit James to South Beach has become like a brother to the Ohio native and the NBA superstar wanted to give him a special birthday present.

So what did he get him? A new car? A home? A fancy vacation? Nope. A sentimental message on social networking site, Instagram.

Happy Bday to my running mate, homie, brother, and most of all straight up friend! The friendship we’ve created our rookie year at pre draft camp was pure and that’s why we stuck together from that point on! Obviously didn’t know we would eventually become teammates and do the things we’ve done so far. I came to Miami for 2 reasons. To play with U and to win championships and I can’t thank u enough for the sacrifice you’ve made since I arrived homie!

James goes on to blast Wade for his age, suggesting he looks 40. Which is a bit odd coming from James, because well, he looks like a decedent of Greg Oden.

Regardless, very kind gesture from King James.

James also posted the following collage of pictures:
