Dwyane Wade on Dancing with the Stars? That’s the rumor.

Miami Heat basketball player Dwyane Wade attends a fashion show of the Yves Saint Laurent collection as part of spring-summer 2012 men's fashion season presented in Paris on Friday, June 24, 2011

Confession time: I have never watched Dancing with the Stars. Not to try and laugh at Mark Cuban, not to watch one of my favorite interviews ever — Helio Castroneves — win the whole thing. Not a second.

And NBA guys have never been on it because it tapes during the season. Sure, a retired guy could go on, but Michael Jordan wouldn’t and do you want to see Charles Barkley dance?

However, the lockout changes everything. There have been rumors out there, and a former DWTS winner – Pittsuburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward — told WCNN in Atlanta that he has heard Dwyane Wade mentioned as possible for this season. (Via Sports Radio Interviews)

“I don’t know, but I did hear rumors and (Wade’s) name did come up. I also heard Ron Artest, too.”

If Wade is on the show would I watch it? Probably not. But I’d rather see him dance than Cuban.

Artest has kind of blown off the idea. But it’s Artest — soon to be Metta World Peace — so if he changed his mind would you be shocked in the least?

Wade has the personality to do it, his footwork always seemed good. And while the show tapes into November (if he lasts that long) I fear it will not interfere with an NBA obligations.

Not sure if it will happen, but it’s something to watch.
