Dwyane Wade tried his best. But, when he asked LeBron James to be a part of the NBA Slam Dunk Contest and the NBA Three-Point Contest earlier this week, King James turned him down…twice.

"I tried to convince LeBron," said Wade, who was voted the captain of the Eastern Conference All-Star team this season. "I told him I'd throw him a lob and we'll win. He turned me down; I think he got nervous."

Bron-Bron said the same thing when Wade approached him about the three-point contest.

"I went 0-for-2," Wade said. "He said he didn't want to shoot."

Good try, D-Wade, good effort. We guess this just isn't gonna happen.
