    Many NBA players wear lensless glasses with thick plastic frames like horn-rimmed glasses during post-game interviews, geek chic that draws comparisons to Steve Urkel. Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, known for his red frames claimed to have started the trend when he entered the league in 2008 but LeBron James of the Miami Heat disagreed. James' teammate Dwyane Wade calls them "nerd glasses." After the Heat won Game 4 of the 2012 NBA Finals Wade took it a step farther by wearing flip-up sunglasses. Wade said he was, "paying a little homage to Dwayne Wayne tonight", referencing Kadeem Hardison's popular character from A Different World. In a comedic ESPN commercial Westbrook switches glasses with Jeff Van Gundy and ends up driving through a cornfield.
