Some lucky fan recently won a pair of sneakers that were autographed by Dwyane Wade at Michael Jordan’s basketball camp. Or, so he thought. The photo that you see above was shared by Twitter user @Karimelkhatib with an accompanying tweet that read, “Won @DwyaneWade signed shoes at Michael Jordan’s flight school.” Unfortunately, D-Wade himself had to break some very bad news to Mr. Khatib.
“That’s cool,” Wade replied with a tweet of his own. “If only (that) was my real signature.”
And cue the buzz kill. Not sure how this could have happened, but I can’t see why Wade would lie about it. Even if he didn’t remember signing the shoes, everyone can tell what their own signature looks like. I’d hate to be the recipient of the sneakers at the moment you realize this Justin Bieber card will always be worth more than your new collector’s item. Hopefully D-Wade does the right thing and sends him something with a real autograph on it. It’s not Khatib’s fault that Air Jordan’s camp gave him the shaft.Google+
