NBA strikes down Dwyane Wade’s designer bandages
So arguably the worst NBA style since dudes were running around with tights was banned by the NBA. Dwayne Wade previously injured his eye and was wearing a band-aid under it but he decided to turn it into a style.
Are you serious?
Well the NBA liked the style about as much as I did, so they banned it.
Sun Sentinel – “We spoke to them,” NBA spokesman Tim Frank said today. “A player can wear a Band-Aid for healthcare purposes, but it shouldn’t have any name or identifications on it.”
Wade has been sporting various logo bandages beneath his left eye since requiring stitches after taking a blow to the face from Charlotte Bobcats forward Juwan Howard in a Feb. 8 victory at AmericanAirlines Arena. He continued to wear the adhesive strips through All-Star Weekend and recent games.
The bandages have featured an American flag, as well as the words “Wade” and “Flash,” the nickname coined by former Heat center Shaquille O’Neal for the All-Star and U.S. Olympic team guard.
The NBA, which limits promotional gear and requires conformity that extends beyond the basketball court, such as its dress code for players at arenas and team functions, spoke to the Heat today about Wade’s fashion statement.
For once they actually got it right. Usually they give guys fines for stupid reasons or the No Fun League stops guys from celebrating touchdowns the way they want. Not this time though
