MiamiHerald / The last question of Dwyane Wade’s introductory press conference Friday afternoon at AmericanAirlines Arena wasn’t about basketball.

It was about the glasses he was wearing. Was this another fashion statement from a man who fashions himself a serious fashionita?

“It’s a process of being 36,” Wade answered with a grin. “I’ve been fighting it for awhile. It helps with my headaches too. I’m not always squinting. I have some blue blocker vibe too to help with the light.”

Wade’s glasses aren’t a new thing. He’s been wearing them for several years now — pretty much since the Big 3 era began. But seeing them on his face Friday — and hearing him admit the aging process is getting to him — was a reminder how Heat fans must see him through a new set of glasses themselves.
