A three-time NBA champion and 10-time All-Star had a powwow with tennis' own 17-time Grand Slam winner on Saturday. And Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade had words, hashtag-heavy words, for those who think he and Roger Federer are truly past their prime, their days of winning at will.

Here's what Wade posted to Instagram: "Hanging with the great @roger_federer_after the game 2nite in our locker room. We have something in common. We're both 32 and they love to call us old. #Champions #EnuffSaid #StillGettingitdone"

Wade turned 32 in January, and Federer himself, considered by most to be the greatest player ever in men's tennis, will be 33 in August. The former is presently nursing an ankle injury that has sidelined him for two games, while the latter recovered recently and exhibited sterling form in claiming the Dubai title and finishing as runner-up to Novak Djokovic in Indian Wells.

The Spin enjoys Fed's retro Nike shirt, as captured in the images above. And, to the surprise of no one, he had courtside seats at the game, which the slumping Heat ultimately won over the Memphis Grizzlies, 91-86.
