2014 NBA Finals - Game Five This is Dwyane Wade. NOT Dan Wade.

Oh dear. It seems that Dan Wade has taken a lot of heat for Dwyane Wade (no pun intended).

Pretty harsh words for a guy who doesn't even play basketball.

Dan himself noticed a strange trend in the tweets:

So remember, before you angrily tweet at a basketball star or offer any relationship advice to a celebrity, make sure you've checked that you're using the right Twitter handle.
