National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver consequently announced on Thursday that Dragic would take Love's place on Team LeBron.
The Heat have a 29-22 record, which is now the No.4 seed in the Eastern Conference. Dragic leads the Heat with averages of 17 points and 4.8 assists per game this season, and will be Miami's lone representative in the All-Star Game.
So much for the reunion of Cleveland's Big Three at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game. "Without them, this would not be possible".
"Hopefully this shows that it's a byproduct of winning and being recognized for winning", Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said in Philadelphia, where the team was practicing.

On Monday, the Patriots tight end himself effectively ended any thought that he wouldn't play against the Eagles . Below we look back at Brady's first Super Bowl teammates and see what they are up to today.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver named Dragic to replace love on Team LeBron - the team captained by Cavs superstar LeBron James in the new-format exhibition. Love, Dragic and Simmons play for Eastern Conference teams.
If a guard from the Western Conference got injured and Ginobili was picked as an All-Star replacement, we don't even know if he would accept it or would rather rest up for the season's home stretch. "We're just thrilled that he got recognized by the other coaches". With how well the Heat have been playing this season, it only makes sense that Dragic would be tapped for the All-Star game due to Love's injury.
Dragic, who will be making his first NBA All-Star appearance, will be the eighth player in franchise history to earn NBA All-Star honors.
