Dallas Mavericks center David Lee returned to his former stomping ground on Friday night as his current franchise faced off against the Golden State Warriors. 

Ahead of the game at the Oracle Arena, there was a special moment for the 32-year-old as he was presented his championship-winning ring by Warriors' superstar Stephen Curry. 

Lee ended the night with 12 points, shooting four of eight from the field. He also recorded six assists and nine rebounds in his 23 minutes and 45 seconds of action as the Mavericks fell 120-128.

It was his first game back in the Bay since he was traded to the Boston Celtics in July 2015. 

Lee played 30 games for the Eastern Conference franchise, averaging 7.1 points and 4.3 per game before being waived in February. 

He made his way back to the west and joined the Mavericks where he has played 15 times, posting 10.7 points and 8.1 rebounds per outing. 

The two-time All-Star spent five years with the Warriors but saw his influence on the team decline during their championship-winning campaign. 

He only played 49 games in the regular season, averaging 7.9 points, and was limited to 107 minutes of action during the playoffs as the Dubs ended their 40-year wait for a title.

Earlier in the year, Lee joined up with his former teammates as they met Barack Obama at the White House.
