That’s because Wade’s former teammate and longtime friend LeBron James also blasted the Heat’s media crew for spelling his name “Dywane” instead of “Dwyane.”
🤦🏾♂️!! I mean he’s only played there 100 out of 101 1/2 seasons in his career. At least know how to spell my brother name “Dwyane” https://t.co/plXYX3AX32

James played for the Heat from 2010 to 2014 and helped the team reach four consecutive NBA Finals and capture two elusive NBA titles.
The erroneous misspelling of Wade’s name was actually during the Heat’s home opener against the Charlotte Hornets. It happened while the 36-year-old was addressing the crowd before the final home opener of his storied career.
The Heat will get another chance to spell their best player in franchise history’s name right when they face off against the Knicks on Wednesday night.
