Dwyane Wade wasn’t sure he wanted to be a game-show host.

The three-time NBA champion was hesitant before agreeing to be the frontman for The Cube, an adaptation of a megapopular British show that Wade will host—and also sometimes participate in. (If you’ve been watching the NBA playoffs, Wade yelling, “Talk to me nice!” is almost certainly taking up space in your brain.) The Cube consists of players taking part in a series of games to win up to $250,000, and one of the lifelines afforded to contestants was having Wade himself sub in for one of the challenges.
