A Glam Slam:
The Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder matchup made for a fashion-forward NBA Finals. Players from both sides flaunted their unique sense of style throughout the series. Post-game sartorial winners and losers received almost as much attention as the action on the hardwood. In the end, the Heat were crowned NBA champs, landing them a trip to the White House to meet with President Obama. For the team, this was another opportunity to suit up in their designer threads.
Prior to the team’s visit, Dwyane Wade took to twitter to showcase his “White House look.” The ensemble included a gray suit from Ferragamo and a shirt, patterned tie, and black and white pocket square from Tom Ford. He topped off the look with a pair of $675 Christian Louboutin “Golfito” shoes. In an effort to stand out, Wade often takes fashion risks, be it a bright pop of color or a novel accessory. This time around, the multicolored wing tip sneakers fit the bill.
In addition to highlighting the team’s accomplishments throughout the 2012 season, the President was quick to compliment Wade’s fashion game and even asked him to show off those designer kicks. Here’s what he had to say:
“We saw Dwyane Wade, the heart and soul of this team, continue to do whatever it takes to win, including leading the team in blocks. And at the post-game press conferences, he dressed well enough to land himself in GQ magazine.”
”Show them your kicks here, Dwyane. If any of you can pull this off, other than Dwyane Wade, let me know.”
Check out the 2:21 minute mark to catch the President’s comments:
BEST OF MAXIM
This might be the age of instant information, but Tom Crean found a way to turn back the clock.On May 17, 2012, Dwyane Wade had one of the worst nights of his NBA career. The Miami guard shot just 2 of 13 for five points in a playoff loss at Indiana. He got into a heated argument on the bench with Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. And, most damaging, Miami was walloped 94-75 to fall behind...
Are you such a huge fan of Dwyane Wade that you are willing to drop $25,000 on his autographed 2005 Range Rover? Yes? That must be a miserable life. However, it’s your lucky day. Some guy is selling Wade’s old ride, but it comes with a very cool piece of memorabilia.
Wade autographed the driver’s side visor. Are you a little fat and have been striking out with the ladies...
When the President of the United States makes it a point to address your haberdashery, there can be no question of your fashion icon status.

IS NO PLACE SACRED?
Despite being an unofficial member of the "Big Three", Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh often finds himself being overshadowed by LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. After all, both James and Wade are virtual locks for the Hall of Fame one day, and so is Bosh, if you ask him.In celebration of their NBA title last year, members of the Heat were invited to the White House for a tour...
It sure was nice to do comments for a win finally. Heat fans spend more time trashing their own team than they do cheering for them. I guess that's the nature of bandwagon fans. I love how they say KG is finished and then say they wish Bosh played more like KG. It was nice to see the Heat fans not gloating over Rondo's injury and wishing him a quick recovery. ...
