Gabrielle, you gotta come and get your man.

Because Dwyane Wade looked how his name is spelled during Game 4 of the NBA Finals, couched between ESPN sportscaster Stephen A. Smith and former player Shaquille O’Neal.


Why you let him leave the house like that, Gabby?!

With a dewy S Curl in “ginger rose”; a shiny, tight, forest-green track suit; and a few gold chains over an open chest, Wade looked as if he stepped straight out of a ’90s rap video. Or a ’90s drug deal.

All he needed was a brick phone, a pager and maybe a fur coat if he was from Harlem.


I don’t know if he was going for throwback, but he needs to throw that look back. Way back.

Side note: If you are standing next to an 8-foot-tall black man in a plaid suit and still look nuts, it’s time to rethink the thing.


What say you? Who is Dwyane channeling here? Usher? Rayful Edmond? Money Makin’ Mitch from Paid in Full?
