Dwyane Wade Praised For Fashion Sense Not On Court Behavior

Dwyane Wade and his Miami Heat team may be suffering some setbacks after their Game 3 loss to the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference semifinal playoff seris, but the NBA star is being graciously touted as the most fashionable man in sport off-court by the fashion bible’s editor herself—Anna Wintour of Vogue for the June issue.

The issue in question features American Olympic hopefuls at the London Games where tennis great Serena Williams lands on the cover and and the father-of-two is the basketball entry.

The 6’ 4” basketball player appears shirtless in the Annie Leibowitz shots showing off his 220 lb frame.

The shooting guard took the time to thank to hard-to-please editor Monday night: “It was an honor to be shot by the legendary Annie Leibovitz for this Vogue piece. Also I wanna thank my good friend Anna Wintour for this honor,” Wade tweeted.

Peep more of the flowery comments from the article below:

“It would be a cinch to dwell on Dwyane Wade’s record-breaking off-court style, a free point. Here’s a guy who can use color—pocket squares, shirts, ties that don’t just dazzle but change the game—like a three-point shot at the buzzer, the hoop that takes it home.”

“Wade is just about the only guy you saw runway-side in Milan (where he stopped the pre-show crowd wearing distressed jeans and a sky-blue blazer) who also once paused play in an NBA game—in which he was lead scorer¬—to adjust the coach of the Philadelphia 76ers’ tie.”

Unfortunately for Wade compliments from the Wintour isn’t enough to save his on-court image. According to the Palm Beach Post his behavior has gotten to a place where “self-identifying Heat fans (are) recommending that Riley trade Wade.”
