Dwyane Wade has the most misspelled name in sports (but not on this blog!) according to a The Wall Street Journal report. Of all the articles that use his name, it’s spelled wrong 4.3 percent of the time. That’s more than retired hockey player Miikka Kiprusoff.
The ‘y’ after the ‘w’ is the tricky part, not to mention that there are different ways to spell both his first and last name.
This led Jimmy Kimmel to go out and find how many could spell his name correctly, offering $100 to those who got it right.
Not many people got it right.
