NBA Fans Hilariously Dub Cleveland Cavaliers Player As The Real D-Wade


Dean Wade scored 20 points in the fourth quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers' comeback win over the Boston Celtics. This led people on the Internet to link him to Dwyane Wade, a legendary player for the Miami Heat.

Dwyane Wade, a legendary player for the Miami Heat, was simply referred to as "D-Wade" by fans throughout his entire NBA career.   

It looks like someone else now has that nickname. Dean Wade scored 20 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to help the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Boston Celtics late in the game.   

"He was himself," Wade's coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. "This is a version of Dean Wade that we've seen in the past and it's the one that we press, and press, and press from him to be.  

"If Dean Wade is feeling really sure of himself, he's a great basketball player. He has many sides to him. He's not just good at making free throws.   

We know what he can do on defense, but he also has a great offensive game, and he showed it today. The faith and trust are at the heart of who he is. 

They came back from being down 22 points in the fourth quarter to beat the league's best team. The Internet, of course, thought the other Wade's act was funny.
