Video: Dwyane Wade Was Proud to Wear Hot Pink Pants

They were his “close-out pants,” naturally.

Given the way Dwyane Wade absolutely decimated the Indiana Pacers last night, he could be given a pass for wearing whatever he damn well pleases. From USA Today: “The Heat guard wore hot pink pants before Game 6, prompting NBA TV’s Rick Kamla to label his attire a ‘flagrant fashion foul.’ He also sported a matching pink finger sleeve. Wade, aware of the criticism, opened up the postgame press conference in a joking mood. ‘Start off this interview by saying I know they’re killing me in the studio over my pants,’ Wade said. ‘They’re just mad because they can’t pull it off.’ [...] LeBron James made fun of Wade before the game by jabbing, ‘Damn, for real, those are close-out pants? And the finger sleeve?’ ‘You gotta coordinate,’ Wade replied. ‘You look like Eddie Murphy in the ’80s,’ James said. ‘Eddie Murphy wishes he looked like me,’ Wade said.”

    I’m feeling the kicks but not the pants. Too skinny and color is way too damn bright.

    Play like that, & he can wear whatever the heck he wants pre-game.


    Closeout pants. Ha !

    Digger Phelps approves of the matching finger sleeve.

    Pink pants not the problem, it was the over-sized shoes that threw the whole outfit off.

    Big ups to AI for showing up to the Sixers game in regular loose gear.

    A pair of hot pink pants is not what you rock a $1200 pair of Louis with. I’m all for the death of oversized clothes and all, but Wade tends to take it too far with the borderline outfits.

    Wade’s giving Craig Sager a run for his money,I know its off topic and they didn’t wear them last night but personally I think all the NBA players and everyone in general that wears those thick black nerd looking glasses is a idiot.. Especially when you don’t even need glasses you look like fools

    Lance Stephenson should have given Wade’s crouch the choke sign.

    Those were some of the worse looking pants I’ve ever seen in my life, and I grew up around the entertainment industry.

    Lebron said at the start of the year he plays his best when having fun and not the tough angry guy, looks like they are having fun and able to laugh at themselves nothing wrong with the pants for those reasons
