Dwyane Wade, LeBron James Mock Dirk Nowitzki's Sickness

This has to be one of the more ironic things I've seen. Dwyane Wade, the NBA's resident drama queen, the guy who had to be rolled out in a wheelchair for his shoulder injury (which he returned from shortly thereafter), the guy who pretended that his eye had been gauged out after he missed a potential game winner in Game 2, the guy whose simulations in 2006 helped Miami beat Dallas, decided that the Game 5 pregame was the right time to roll out his Dirk Nowitzki sickness joke series. LeBron James joined in, though seemingly a little reluctantly. 

Wade did manage to mix in another injured body part, as he had to miss the start of the third quarter due to a collision with Brian Cardinal, on which a stationary Cardinal was called for a blocking foul. Somehow I have a feeling that Wade will survive the life threatening injury and manage to courage his way onto the court for Game 6.
