DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - LeBron James and Dwyane Wade might want to rethink mocking Dirk Nowitzki next time.

Thursday afternoon before Game 5 of the NBA Finals, cameras caught the Miami Heat stars making fun of Nowitzki’s illness during Game 4.  Here’s the raw video:

The exchange happened right after the Heat’s pre-game shootaround.  It was a little noisy in the tunnel at the time, but Wade could clearly be heard saying, “Did you hear me cough?  Think I’m sick.”  James said, “It’s hard to go from 85 degree weather and then go to 90.  Messes with you.”

A few hours after the Heat’s stars had their fun, the Mavericks won Game 5, 112-103.  Dirk scored 29 points.  Wade got 23 and a hip injury that kept him in the locker room for part of the game.  James scored 17.
