If you find yourself browsing NBA boxscores tonight, don't be surprised — the Miami Heat DID drop a game to the lowly Detroit Pistons. A key part of the loss was the absence of Dwyane Wade, who served a one-game suspension after delivering a groin kick to Ramon Sessions in Wednesdays game against the Charlotte Bobcats. LeBron and Bosh combined for 63 points, but the Heat ultimately couldn't keep pace with the hot-shooting Pistons without their third amigo. Wade will rejoin the Heat tomorrow night in Milwaukee.
While presumably sitting at his Detroit hotel room, Wade snapped a shot of a previously unseen colorway of his Li-Ning Way of Wade signature shoe. Similar to one of the styles in the Christmas Pack, the "Suspension" Wade features a red leather upper with metallic patent overlays on the toebox, tongue and heel. While works the tongue, eyestay and speckled midsole, which sits atop a red and white rubber outsole to complete the look.
What do you think of this new Way of Wade style?
Note: No, "Suspension" isn't a real nickname for this Way of Wade, but neither was "Bred" for the XI and Jordan Brand is selling t-shirts with it printed across the front. Cut the check, Li-Ning!
