In honor of the start of the 2007-08 season, our friends at Converse are sponsoring a little contest here on SLAMonline.

The prize? An autographed Wade 3 shoe straight from Dwyane Wade. The new Wade 3s drop Saturday, and we’ll get you a pair of your own as well. So you’ll actually win three shoes — two in your size, and one of Dwyane’s signed joints.

How do you win it? Simple: Last weekend I posted a copy of the love letter to basketball that Dwyane Wade wrote over the summer. Now it’s your turn. You’ve got until Friday at noon to write your own love letter to basketball, down in the comments section below. Our friends at Converse will pick a winner.

Go to it…
