LeBron James mocks Dwyane Wade's migraine glasses

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has been battling migraine headaches that caused him to miss Sunday night's game against the Toronto Raptors, and he has taken to wearing protective goggles during practice this week to ease the light sensitivity on his eyes.

Because LeBron James thinks that LeBron James is hilarious, LeBron James decided to wear similar goggles to mock Wade but play it off like he was doing it to make Wade feel better. The Palm Beach Post captures James' explanation.
“D-Wade is like a kid who just transferred schools, and they don’t have any friends,” James said. “So, you know, I felt like me putting on glasses today, I would help him get accustomed to the new school that we’ve got going on right now. I decided to join him, and I made him part of our little Boy Scout club we’ve got going.”

James signs with Wade's Heat during the offseason, and then decides he runs the school and Wade is the loser transfer. Got it. I won't even touch the Boy Scouts part, as that is pretty much indecipherable. 

The real question: Are these glasses (pictured top right) really that bad? We've been hearing about them all week, how coach Erik Spoelstra was cracking up when he saw them, according to a Sun-Sentinel item, for example. 
The jokes began the moment he walked into the locker room. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra began laughing the second he saw Wade wearing the eyewear.
Spoelstra even struggled during the team film session, refusing to look at Wade to prevent from bursting in laughter.
"Dwyane is doing his best Danny Schayes impersonation," Spoelstra said, referring to the former NBA player known for his eyewear.
After finally getting a look at them, they look fairly normal. 

And it's not like Wade hasn't done worse before, by choice and not by medical direction. Check out the look to the right via Rec Specs Revolution. Those are somehow stylish and trend-setting while the migraine headache headwear is loserville? Color me confused.

Those with migraines have known that light can trigger migraine.  Researchers are now understanding why.  Migraine glasses, or FL-41 glasses, can help.

Fight migraines wearing goggles and Calvin Klein

BTW: D-Wade's goggles raised probably more public awareness for migraine than any organized migraine awareness events before. That is one good thing independent how his goggles look like. I wrote about him an other sport stars and migraine in an article: .

This is why most athletes act like robots when dealing with the media. Because everything is blown WAY out of proportion.

LeBron James mocks Dwyane Wade's migraine glasses

  I agree the Oakley blades were never really my thing even in the nineties; but come on, they are certainly better than the Zsa Zsa Gabor signature glasses pictured below them.  It is only a matter of time before Wade gets bent out of shape at Lebronze.  The subtle slams will start to catch up to their relationship.  I hope Wade leaves and wins a championship in another city; hopefully Cleveland.  Now that would be karma.  But back to the glasses; I would certainly rather borrow a pair of glasses from Lance Armstrong's nineties collection than borrowing a pair from Liz Taylor at any point in time.  And if the glasses didn't look dumb enough why not throw in my name on a sticker on my cheekbone?  huh.....  Is that kind of like not taking the tags off your hat only the newer stylish version?  I wonder if any of the pro athletes ever realized tags on your hat was a style started by thieves.  It is easier to bring back a hat after using it for a month when the tags are still on it.  Keeps your wardrobe fresh for sure.  My last interview didn't go the best because I left the tags on my tie and dress shirt.
