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.
