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-Wad

Sometimes the best slam dunks don't happen during NBA games but before them and that logic is evidenced in the below video of Miami Heat star LeBron James throwing down a sick dunk during a Heat lay-up line.The dunk comes at about the :35 second mark of the video as LeBron does a spinning behind-the-back alley-oop dunk:
LeBron James continues to troll, troll, troll his boat prior to NBA games in the form of some nasty dunks. We wrote about LeBron trolling regarding the dunk contest last week, and he continued to do the same prior to the Heat’s last game. Check out Bron’s basic alley-oop to himself between his legs dunk. No big deal, wouldn’t even register at the dunk contest.
LeBron James is on a monster of a tear, which continued Tuesday with King James scoring a season-high 40 points in a 141-129 double-overtime win over the Sacramento Kings. Forty is a ridiculous number but seems almost pedestrian for superhuman LeBron.
James made 14-of-23 field goals and 11-of-12 free throws in the shootout. He nearly put together another triple-double with 16...
MIAMI (AP) -- Dwyane Wade got hot down the stretch, and LeBron James missed a layup in the final minute.
Both were huge breaks for the Miami Heat.
James scored 28 points, Wade scored 11 of his 24 in the final five minutes -- when Miami needed him most -- and the Heat extended the NBA's longest current winning streak to 11 games, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 109-105 in a...
Tweet Earlier this week we gave you video of LeBron James performing a sick dunk in warm-ups that would have registered pretty high scores in a dunk contest. Tuesday before the Heat played the Kings LeBron pulled another amazing dunk out of his bag of tricks, this time going between his legs mid-air with relative ease: [...]
Uh oh, better bring out the wheelchair!
If there is one certain thing that we all know and can agree on, it is that you don’t give yourself a nickname. While I blossomed as G$ once I discovered the internet, I have to give credit to Big Dick Daddy Sping for calling me that in high school. I’m not going to reveal names but some of you will get who I’m talking about, but at...

Say it isn’t so!?! Unless you have been living in a cave you may have seen video – or live, if you’re extremely lucky – of LeBron James insane pregame dunks. You know the self alley-oop, between-the-legs dunk that have fans wanting more. However, some have criticized him about his resistance with the Slam Dunk contest, [...]The post LeBron James May Quit Pregame Dunk Routines...
Oh, nothing to see here folks. Just LeBron James putting on a little dunk contest prior to the Heat’s game against the Cavs on Sunday. ‘Bron has continually trolled the world about his possible inclusion in the NBA’s dunk contest, and he didn’t participate again this year. After seeing this video of him dunking you can bet this will spark another round of “if only LeBron...
Fans can sure be stupid sometimes.
Here you have one of the best basketball players to ever play the game, and he likes to put on a little show during warm-ups for the fans by performing some crazy dunks. What do we do? We complain and harass the man about not performing in the Dunk Contest.
This should be the point where I say I get it; that I'm with you fans, but...

When it rains, it pours for Manti Te’o. Seriously, is there anyone in the world who is having a worse couple of months than this guy? He has gone from the Heisman runner up, to the butt of every sports related joke, and now sliding down draft boards all over the NFL.
