Dwyane Wade has been named the Eastern Conference captain for All-Star weekend, and he has apparently been attempting to persuade teammate LeBron James to participate in the festivities.
Wade’s new role gives him major input on who will partake in the popular events during All-Star weekend, and he is trying to have LBJ re-consider his stance on never being a part of the Slam Dunk Contest, which is scheduled for February 16th.
Dwyane Wade spoke to reporters before the Miami Heat game on Friday, saying
“I tried to convince LeBron.”
LeBron replied to Dwyane Wade,
“On the dunk contest? Oh no, that’s out.”
