Despite the fact that the Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade was the third one after Boston’s Kyrie Irving and Charlotte’s Kemba Walker in the NBA All-Star voting for Eastern Conference guards, he wouldn’t pick himself to participate in the upcoming All-Star game.

Here is what Dwyane Wade said, per Bleacher Report:

“If I’m choosing an All-Star, I’m not picking me. It’s not an indictment on anything, but guys that deserve to be All-Stars will be All-Stars. For the first time, I actually agree with [TNT analyst] Charles Barkley and what he said. It’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.

I appreciate the love from my fans to even vote me, to have as many votes as they did. But from an All-Star standpoint, there’s multiple guys that deserve to be in there and I hope they get their opportunity.”

This season, the 37-year-old player is averaging 13.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists, while shooting at 43.0 percent from the floor in 25.3 minutes of action.
