Hornets GM Slips Up & Introduces Dwayne Bacon as Dwyane Wade (VIDEO)
If there’s one thing Americans love, it’s bacon. Not sure how you forget a name like that.
In the process of introducing the Charlotte Hornets’ newest draftees, Hornets general manager Rich Cho accidentally introduced the team’s 40th selection in the 2017 NBA Draft, Dwayne Bacon, as “Dwyane Wade.”
First name pronounced the same, but spelled different. Bacon sets them apart.
The unfortunate slip-up garnered a few giggles from across the room including Dwayne Bacon.
