The Irony: Dwyane Wade Questionable With Illness For Final Game In Dallas

DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - You can't make this stuff up. 

Dwyane Wade didn't attend shootaround this morning and is questionable for his final game in Dallas with an illness, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

Much has been made about Wade's final trip to Dallas as both he and Dirk Nowitzki have had bad blood with one another since the 2006 NBA Finals when Wade was awarded 97 free throws in the series.

Wade was also critical of Nowitzki in an article written by the Miami Herald when he said the Mavs lost the finals because Dirk "wasn't the leader that he’s supposed to be in the closing moments."

Then, during the 2011 NBA finals, Wade and LeBron James were caught on camera mocking Dirk for being sick. 

Dirk admitted during a recent interview with MacMahon that there were some "frosty times" between the two, but credited Wade with pushing him to be "the player in '11 to ultimately win."
