Found April 19, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
PLAYERS: Dwyane Wade
TEAMS: Miami Heat
Dwyane Wade is a man of the people. Not only did Wade attend the Yankees-Angels game last Sunday following his team’s win over the Knicks, but he also found some time to play a little pickup basketball with some kids at the park. The New York Post reported on Tuesday that Wade was out buying clothing with his stylist in SoHo after the game when he spotted some kids playing at Tompkins Square Park. Despite wearing fancy clothes like including a dress shirt and tie, Wade was able to ball it up. We have no idea if Wade’s publicist fed the story to the New York Post and shot the video and sent it to TMZ, but it looked fairly authentic to us. The only questionable part was Wade wearing relatively athletic-looking shoes, suggesting this may have been planned.
