LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, And The Miami Heat's Little Boy Scout Club

Earlier today we mentioned that while it's long past time we conceded the Miami Heat are one of the three or four best teams in the NBA, it's still tough to actually respect them... Example 6,235? This week, Dwyane Wade decided to wear a pair of red-rimmed glasses to help him avoid light while he battled a migraine. His teammates made fun of him for it, naturally. Pretty typical story, right? Right.

But then LeBron started wearing glasses, too. And, you know, it's not just that LeBron views himself as the arbiter of cool, and that by co-signing Wade's shades, he'd be make them cool. But really, it's the way LeBron explains this that really elevates it to something special:

"D-Wade is like a kid who just transferred schools, and they don’t have any friends. ... 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."

Um, did he call it their "little Boy Scout club"?

He did. Like I said, impossible to respect.
