The NBA world is watching and talking about this video today, in the brilliant words of SBN’s Tom Ziller it is blowing up like a meth lab. So we bring it to you.

This news broadcast below — taken BEFORE Game 5 — has video of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade walking out of the arena after practice making some fun of the Dirk Nowitzki pull-the-shirt-up-over-your-mouth press conference.

Really? This is an issue? If you want to hate on LeBron there are plenty of good, legitimate targets for you today, this is not one of them. Frankly, Dirk’s presser while sick was pretty funny. It was a mild 24-hour cold, not something serious. At the end of the day LeBron, Wade and Dirk are buddies who respect each other. There is no malice here, just some guys in team sports poking a little fun at each other. If you’ve ever played a team sport, you know the spirit this is intended in.

Can we actually get back to talking about the game now?

    “At the end of the day LeBron, Wade and Dirk are buddies who respect each other. There is no malice here, just some guys in team sports poking a little fun at each other.”

    MIAMI – Dirk Nowitzki says Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were “a little childish, a little ignorant” in a video in which they appear to mock the Mavericks star’s recent sinus infection.

    Yeah, they’re best buds.
