Most people can relate to losing a bet forged in punishments rather than tangible gain, especially sports fans. However, this also applies to retired competitors and sports stars themselves, and that includes former Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade.

Wade is a true loyalist to his primary team in the NBA based out of Miami, having made a bet that included the risk of dying his hair purple with a Los Angeles Lakers victory in the NBA Finals.

Unfortunately for Wade, though, simply dying his hair purple wasn't all. He is also clearly a man of his word when it comes to owning up to a lost bet, as he dyed a purple "L" to signify a loss for both himself and his former franchise in the NBA Finals.

It's always fun to see former superstars keeping in touch and rooting for their old franchises, especially one of such great charisma and character as Wade.
