On Friday, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was named to the NBA All-Star Game by NBA commissioner Adam Silver as a special roster addition.

The iconic veterans will give each club a 13th roster player when teams captained by LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo meet on February 17 at Charlotte, North Carolina.

"Dirk Nowitzki and Dwyane Wade embody the best of the National Basketball Association: remarkable skill, drive and professionalism as well as a deep devotion to strengthening their communities and growing the game around the world", said Silver. James will have the first pick between Nowitzki and his former teammate Wade.

It's an achievement finally broken through by the 22-year-old Simmons, whose Philadelphia team is now third in the Eastern Conference standings with a 33-18 record.
