Dirk Nowitzki Reflects on Former ‘Frosty’ Relationship With Dwyane Wade
- Updated: February 12, 2019
While Nowitzki and Wade have had some clashes in the past, namely the two separate times they met in the NBA Finals, there is a clear respect that both players share for each other.
Prior to Wednesday’s game, Nowitzki opened up about his relationship with Wade through the years.

It’s an interesting look inside a relationship between two of the game’s most beloved and competitive players.
Now, with just a few months to go before Wade plans to retire, questions remain about Nowitzki’s future.
He has not yet definitively said that he will be calling it quits at the end of this season. Still, the fact that he will be an unrestricted free agent this summer coupled with the clear sense that the Mavs are looking to build towards the future seem to point to the possibility that the end is near for him as well.
Later this month, both Wade and Nowitzki will play in what will likely be both players’ last All-Star game. Both were added as special team roster additions.
Wednesday’s game will mark the final time Wade will play an away game against the Mavs. He has had some of the most memorable moments of his career in Dallas’ American Airlines Center, including winning the pivotal Game 6 in the 2006 NBA Finals.
Tomorrow night’s game is sure to be memorable for completely different reasons.
