Dwyane Wade gives advice to his younger self in creepy #TBT Instagram post

New, comments

Dwyane Wade has a unique way of expressing himself. In the past, we've seen him write a love letter to basketballdress like an 80's musician/superhero for Esquire, and once went to a Halloween party dressed like Justin Timberlake.

Somehow, he may have found a way to do something even weirder on Instagram today:

Here's the caption for Wade's post:

Young Dwade... you will go thru UPS and DOWNS you're gonna lose your way and feel lost but i promise you you will find your way.. Basketball is going to take you places you've only imagine in your dreams, and beyond...On the court don't hold anything back, what you do now will set the plate for you and your families future. oh btw you will have a beautiful supportive family. They're gonna let you lead and when you fall they will be there to pick you up and wait for you to walk back to the front and lead again.. Go enjoy an amazing life young bull!!!

Don't get me wrong, it's great to see Wade finding new ways to motivate himself and reaffirm that all the sacrifices he's made over the years have been worth it, but at the same time this is still a very weird picture.

If you don't understand why this is weird, imagine a sweaty, older version of yourself putting their arm around you and saying "Go enjoy an amazing life young bull!!!" There is no way you won't take a very, very long shower and then go seek counseling after such an encounter.
