BKN--ALL-STAR GAME-DWYANE AND DIRK

DALLAS _ Of all the opposing jerseys Dwyane Wade has collected through swaps during his final NBA season, Dirk Nowitzki’s was among those the Miami star wanted the most and somehow seemed worried he wouldn’t get. Maybe it had something to do with the “frosty” phase of their relationship, as the Dallas icon described the strain following the Heat’s six-game win over the Mavericks in the 2006 NBA Finals. Maybe Wade thought such a display wouldn’t be possible on Dallas owner Mark Cuban’s court. In reality, Wade didn’t need to worry about Nowitzki turning him down. By Schuyler Dixon.

ESPORTS-OVERWATCH-SEASON 2

The Overwatch League begins its second season a few steps closer to its goal of becoming a truly global, city-based esports league. It has added eight expansion franchises, including three in China, two in Canada and one in Paris, but those clubs won’t play in their home markets until at least 2020. Though all 20 Overwatch League franchises are still based in Southern California, the league will host its first true home-and-away matches during weekend stints in Dallas, Atlanta and Los Angeles.
