Dirk Says LeBron And D-Wade’s Antics Childish [VIDEO]

Dirk Nowitzki wasn’t amused that LeBron James and Dwyane Wade mocked him before Game 5 of the NBA Finals.  

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade made light of Dirk Nowitzki’s illness by doing some fake coughing.  Nowitzki had a 101-degree temperature and a sinus infection during Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat.  LeBron and D-Wade made fun of Dirk’s illness following a morning shootaround leading up to Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Nowitzki responded by saying, “I just thought it was a little childish, a little ignorant.  I’ve been in this league for 13 years.  I’ve never faked an injury or illness.”

It’s ironic that LeBron James made fun of Dirk Nowitzki’s couch because LeBron has been chocking in the NBA Finals.  LeBron, a 2-time MVP, has only scored 11 points in the 4th quarter of the first five games.  JJ Barea, a reserve Mavericks point guard, has the exact same number of 4th quarter points. Dirk has scored 52 points in the 4th quarter.  Nowitzki would have to act out a full-blown gag to do an accurate impression of LeBron’s play in the Finals so far.  Either that, or crawl into the fetal position.
