Dwyane Wade — that's D-Wade to most sports fans — ditched his "Flash" nickname a while back. This would not do. One of the world's best basketball players needs an appropriate nickname. Turns out, he has one. And it's, well, wow. No, really. WOW. That's the acronym for the Miami Heat star's line of kicks for Chinese sportswear company Li-Ning. It stands for "Way of Wade." Teammate LeBron James was not impressed. "I think it's corny," James said during a recent shootaround. (We agree with King James. WOW? C'mon, D-Wade, you can do better.) Wade, though, shook off the haters, replying that he's taking the slogan "global." Good luck with that. [Source]
