His performances led to a big push in All-Star voting, finishing sixth among the Western Conference frontcourt players in fan votes and seventh in player voting.

Wade has made it clear throughout the process he did not want to take an All-Star spot from a player who deserved it just because it's the final season of his Hall of Fame career, and he didn't. With Oladipo having undergone season-ending surgery, he's likely to be replaced by D'Angelo Russell. "There's a lot of guys that get their first chance to be All-Stars, and if they deserve it then they deserve it and they should have those spots". They were not permitted to vote for players from their own team.

Wade and Nowitzki will be selected in a new third round of the draft.

Wade has career averages of 22.2 points, 5.5 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.55 steals per game over 16 National Basketball Association seasons. As of Friday, he is the only Heat player participating in an All-Star event this year.
