NBA adds Wade, Nowitzki to All-Star player pool

Ben Simmons right will join Sixers teammate Joel Embiid as an All-Star. More

Even after being left off the original list of All-Stars, NBA commissioner Adam Silver named Wade and Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki as "special team roster additions" for the February 17 All-Star Game in Charlotte, North Carolina. The move adds a 13th player to each roster. After the most recent win over Toronto Raptors, journalists asked Giannis about one of the most prominent young tennis stars Stefanos Tsitsipas and probably the second most famous sportsman from Greece at the moment.

An eight-time All-NBA Team selection and three-time NBA All-Defensive Team member, Wade has career averages of 22.2 points, 5.5 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.55 steals per game in 16 NBA seasons.

Wade and Nowitzki will be selected in a new third round of the draft.

His relationship with the Heat organization has had some rough stretches, which led to him playing small stretches of his career with the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he eventually came back to finish his career with the franchise that he carried in his shoulders over the past 15 years.

In his fourth National Basketball Association season, Jokic is having a career year, making it a no-brainer to name the rising super star to his first all-star team.

"I thought it was great", Spoelstra said of Silver's gesture.

James and Antetokounmpo will select their teams regardless of a player's conference or position, with each captain choosing 11 players. He was also the 2006 NBA Finals MVP and 2008-09 scoring champion. He was also named the 2011 Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP Award victor after leading the Mavericks to their first NBA championship.

The upcoming game will mark Dirk's 14th All Star appearance and Wade's 13th. One of the two captains this year is Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, who is a former Heat player and close friend of Wade's.

"He better pick me", Wade said.
