Dwyane Wade Love Letter Becomes Promotional Vehicle for Converse
Aww. Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade's letter to basketball reads like an earnest, and early, version of Common's "I Used to Love Her," a love letter to hip-hop.
But unlike hip-hop, the game doesn't start turning tricks in adulthood.
The letter is the inspiration for a Converse promotion by Anomaly. The spot, "From Robbins, Illinois," started airing on October 28th. Around that time, the Wade 3 signature basketball shoe was also released.
See the spot and behind-the-scenes footage here. The :60 piece does a good job of capturing a moment that apparently meant a lot to him.
Also, Wade is really into triangles.
