Dwyane Wade is set to make his Tuesday night debut with NBA on TNT. The retired Miami Heat player has branched out into the broadcasting world and his cast members are welcoming him to the team in the nicest way possible: by roasting him online in front of millions of people.
Back in October, Wade and TNT made their new partnership public to the basketball world.
The announcement was made: Wade would be joining Shaquille O'Neal, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, and host Ernie Johnson in what could be considered one of the best sports programs on TV during the basketball season.
"NBA on TNT" has been airing since the late '80s. The show's signature off the cuff style and conversational tone seem to have revolutionized sports television.
Barkley, O'Neal, and Smith have been staples of the show and as a consequence, various segments and games have been created around the former players and their personalities.
One of the funnier and more successful of these segments is called "Shaqtin' a Fool."
Essentially, Shaq and his fellow panel members poke fun at players, coaches or referees who may have produced a real-life blooper on camera.
As a welcome gift, TNT posted a compilation of Dwyane Wade's best "Shaqtin' a Fool" moments.
The hilarious video was posted to the "Shaqtin' a Fool" Instagram and Twitter accounts.
The clip shows some of Wade's less than flattering moments throughout his career. From the Heat to Cavaliers and the Bulls, the future Hall-of-Famer has had his fair share of dropping the ball — sometimes literally.
The video shows multiple missed dunks, a few ridiculous flops and an embarrassing misstep on the Heat media bench.
Dwyane Wade has proven he has a good sense of humor, so we think it's safe to say the former Heat player is probably laughing at this video somewhere.
For his debut, Wade will be joined by host Adam Lefkoe, former WNBA player Candace Parker and former Miami Heat teammate Shaquille O'Neal.
Lefkoe posted his own welcome to Dwyane Wade as well.
The caption partially reads: "NBA on TNT Tuesday's starts at 6:30PM EST with Dwyane Wade, Candace Parker, and Shaquille O'Neal. TUNE IN."
If Wade has half the amount of chemistry with Lefkoe as he did with James, we are in for some grade A television.
You can tune in to TNT at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time to catch the Heat star make his big debut alongside fellow legend Shaquille O'Neal.
