I know T...it's a funky spelling..

Dwyane Wade has a very unique spelling of his name..I always wondered why it was spelled that way..Now we have an answer..In an interview with Esquire magazine, D-Wade talks about his name..He says.. “I have no idea. I’m a junior — I got that name from my father. I asked him — my grandma said that’s how she felt it was spelled. There you go.” I feel much better now knowing it was simply a misspelling..Truth be told, I often find myself spelling his name wrong..and Spell Check doesn’t catch it for obvious reasons..-TO
