Hornets GM Rich Cho Hilariously Introduces Rookie Dwayne Bacon as Dwyane Wade

By Anthony Blake

The Charlotte Hornets landed two promising rookies in the 2017 NBA Draft with Malik Monk and Dwayne Bacon.

Unfortunately for general manager Rich Cho, apparently he thought that second-round steal was actually a different Dwyane.

It would have been quite a pick to land Dwyane Wade at No. 40 overall rather than Dwayne Bacon, even at Wade’s advanced age.

Alas, this misintroduction was taken in stride by everyone at the press conference and the look on Bacon’s face was truly priceless.
