There is a short list of NBA players that don’t abide to the unwritten rule of given nicknames. Kobe Bryant is infamously one of them, calling himself the “Black Mamba” without anyone actually ever calling him it, prior to the name existence  There is obviously Shaq, who has thousands of nicknames with unknown origins. And now we can add his former teammate, Dwyane Wade to that list. From The Palm Beach Post (Via SLAM): LeBron James was so amused by Dwyane Wade’s new self-proclaimed nickname that he dared Wade to reveal it to the media before doing so himself. “It’s ‘WOW,’ Way of Wade,” James said, referring to the slogan for Wade’s Li-Ning shoes. “I think it’s corny.” Wade, who discarded the “Flash” nickname two years ago, did not concur. Wow? “I’m taking it global!” he shouted. Not all that surprising, seeing that his sense in fashion is pretty much a reflection of his poor taste. Just look at his new shoe logo, I am not going to say it, but it looks a lot like something humans have, to get rid of bodily wastes. That and it eerily resembles the flag of Greendale Community College. What happened to the Dwyane Wade that was still with Converse? I miss that guy, he was cool and the shoes were better too.
