Dwyane Wade wears Capri pants to Game 4

Dwyane Wade Capri pants

Yes, Dwyane Wade really showed up to Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls wearing that outfit. Wade certainly pushes the limits when it comes to his postseason fashion choices, and this was no different. Capri pants, loafers, a double-breasted jacket, patterned suit, and some phony glasses. I think he forgot his ascot and pipe at home.

In the image below, you can get a closer look at his sockless, short pants look:

Dwyane Wade’s jacket had a floral pattern and was hideous

Dwyane Wade continues to embarrass himself with his postgame attire.

The Miami Heat guard sported this ridiculous looking outfit to his news conference after the Heat’s 115-78 win over the Chicago Bulls in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Tuesday night. Seriously, where did he get it from? Did he go over to Del Boca Vista and borrow it from an old woman at a retirement home? Did he snag it from his grandmother’s dining room table? Did he grab it off the wallpaper of the Harrah’s buffet?

Come on, Wade, pick it up, son.

The guy meets with his fashion consultants before the postseason begins and this is the best he can do? Turrible.

Stylist Megan Ann Wilson explained Wade’s outfit and showed how it looks on the runway:

Dwyane Wade reportedly met with his fashion guys before playoffs

The Miami Heat are widely considered to be favorites to win back-to-back NBA titles this season. There are very few people — the players included — who believe the Milwaukee Bucks have a chance to pull off a first-round upset. Dwyane Wade, for one, does not seem too concerned.

The NY Post’s Page Six reported over the weekend that Wade prepared for Game 1 against the Bucks by meeting with his fashion designer buddies on Thursday. Stylists Dean and Dan Caten, who are the founders of the clothing line Dsquared2, were spotted at a restaurant called Bianca chatting it up with D-Wade. One fellow diner said he or she heard Wade and the Caten brothers discussing several custom pieces they could create for the Heat star.

Two nights later, Wade went out and scored 15 points, grabbed five rebounds and dished out five assists in a 110-87 win over Milwaukee. If he has to meet with his fashion designers to discuss future business plans during the NBA Playoffs, it’s probably a good thing that he’s doing so at the beginning of the first round. If D-Wade is meeting with his shoe designer before Game 6 of the NBA Finals, then we can start criticizing him.

Dwyane Wade nicknames himself ‘Wow’, LeBron James does not approve

Dwyane Wade has come up with a new nickname for himself, and at least one of his Miami Heat teammates does not approve. According to Ethan J. Skolnick of The Palm Beach Post, Wade would now like to be referred to as “WOW.”

The acronym stands for “World of Wade,” and I think LeBron James can speak for all of us in saying that it is not cool.

“It’s ‘WOW,’ Way of Wade,” James told the media. “I think it’s corny.”

D-Wade didn’t exactly come up with it on his own. His new shoe company, Li-Ning, is using the slogan “Way of Wade” as a tagline for promoting its products that are endorsed by Wade. However, the Heat star is the one who would like to be called “WOW.”

“I’m taking it global!” Wade said enthusiastically after catching some ribbing from LeBron.

The only thing worse than a bad nickname is a bad nickname that you come up with on your own. When coaches make fun of players by giving them nicknames like this, at least the player has no control over it. If you ask me, D-Wade is a fine enough nickname where Wade doesn’t need to go around calling himself “WOW.” This just further confirms why I don’t like the guy.

Dwyane Wade kick at Metta World Peace gets Mortal Kombat treatment

We’ve talked in the past about Dwyane Wade being a dirty player, and he was up to some of his old tricks on Sunday. During a fourth quarter possession against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Miami Heat guard drove to the basket, went up for a layup, and was fouled on the play. Wade did a kick with his leg toward Metta World Peace, as if he was trying to create more space for himself. He didn’t appear to actually make contact with Metta, but the move led to this great screencap via @cjzero:

Wade was caught in a kicking pose looking just like Liu Kang from Mortal Kombat. Naturally, the screencap led to this fantastic photoshop job by @DanWeiner:

Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh benched for 4th quarter; Wade has Jazz fan kicked out

Dwyane-Wade-Jazz-fanDwyane Wade appeared to have a particularly frustrating night on Monday as the Miami Heat lost to the Utah Jazz. In the third quarter, a Jazz fan apparently got under Wade’s skin so much that he asked arena staff to have him removed from the game. Miami was trailing by 20 at the time, and Wade watched the entire fourth quarter of the 104-97 loss from the bench.

He was not the only star who was not given a chance to contribute down the stretch. Erik Spoelstra also decided to bench Chris Bosh for the final quarter, only bringing him back in for a meaningless 40 seconds to close out the game. Spoelstra went with a lineup of LeBron James, Joel Anthony, Rashard Lewis, Ray Allen and Mario Chalmers for more than 11 minutes in the fourth. Why?

“(They) seemed to have enough pep in their step,” Spoelstra told reporters after the game, via the Palm Beach Post. “They turned that deficit around so quickly, that it was really an easy decision to keep them in there during the middle of the fourth quarter. Then you’ve got to make some tough decisions down the stretch.”

LeBron James on Lakers: ‘No one will ever compare to what we went through’

The Miami Heat successfully silenced an enormous amount of critics by winning an NBA championship last season, and they don’t want any of us to forget about it. Because of their slow start that has followed incredibly high offseason expectations, the Los Angeles Lakers have drawn a number of comparisons to the 2010-2011 Heat. According to LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, the two situations are hardly alike.

“No one will ever be able to compare what we went through,” James told the Miami Herald on Friday. “Even though they’re not winning and they’re losing a lot of games, it’s still nowhere near what we went through. Yeah, right. That level of magnitude was nowhere near where ours was two years ago. Nothing. Nothing compares to it.”

Wade agreed wholeheartedly.

“Because of everything that happened in 2010 with offseason signings, it was, automatically, just a lot of negative things that was said about us,” Wade said. “(Los Angeles) didn’t go through that at the beginning. They didn’t go through anything negative about bringing those guys together, so ours started off bad and it stayed bad for a while, and then we got better.”

In a way, the Heat stars are right. LeBron was referred to as one of the greatest players of all time but had no championship hardware to show for it, so that pressure loomed over Miami. Kobe Bryant could use another ring to better his legacy, but he hardly needs it. The mystery of whether or not LeBron would be able to win his first ring created an enormous amount of pressure in itself.

However, the Heat players brought on much of the pressure that they faced last season and the year before. You didn’t see L.A. throwing any type of Three Kings introduction party when they acquired Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. It makes sense that the Heat want everyone to know they overcame more obstacles than any team in NBA history, but let us not forget that they brought much of it on themselves by acting like jackasses.
