Dwyane Wade Heard What We Said About His Acting Ability
"The folks at the Miami New Times had some fightin' words: New teammate LeBron James is a better actor, they said. As proof, they offered his Nike commercial in the pool," wrote Men's Health.
We did say LeBron's Nike commercial was a better ad, but we also said, "Wade does his job well, and it's not his fault the ad men couldn't come up with a more clever commercial."
Relations between New Times and the Heat are at an all-time low. They won't even let us interview Banana Man. So just to be clear: Wade, we think you're a promising improvisational actor. Maybe when you're home in Chicago, you can take some lessons at the famed Second City. We see SNL hosting gigs in your future.
"There's a difference," Wade told MH about the differences between his commercial and LeBron's. "Mine was just raw [footage]."
The magazine went on to ask Wade his picks for best NBA commercial actors of all time. Here they are:
3. Charles Barkley, who starred with Wade in a T-Mobile commercial).
2. Larry Johnson for his inspired performance as Granda Ma.
1. Michael Jordan, of course.
