NBA's Wade emulates Augusta style in gift
Sunday, December 22, 2013
It's been said that the Masters transcends its sport. Well, look no further than Lebron James and teammate Dwyane Wade for proof.
Championship rings already on their fingers for winning the NBA title last season, the Miami Heat were given Augusta-style green jackets with a team spin by Wade – and he posted a jacket-clad team photo to his Instagram account.
Wade's photo included a caption on his account, dwyanewade: "I'm in a giving mood... Presented my teammates with a gift of a champion today... Channeling our inner Masters w the green jackets...#Lovemyteam#MastersGolf #wedowhatwewant #grownmenish"
James shared the image with a new caption from his Instagram account, kingjames: "@dwyanewade is in the giving mood tonight! Gave everyone from our championship team last year a green jacket reminiscing of the Masters! Unbelievably thought out! Fashion at the same time! Crazy!#TheHeatles #ChannelingOurInnerMastersAtGolf#RoleWithTheWinners #IsThisWhyTheyHateUs#HaveFunWithWhatYouDo"
Wade's jackets have a much larger insignia on their lapels than would a jacket for a Masters winner. They also have a large letterman-style number on the opposite sleeve. So nobody's going to be sneaking into the Butler Cabin with one anytime soon.
