Zaire Wade and Dwyane Wade

Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade helped lead his team to back-to-back NBA championships last week. When Wade finally hangs up his sneakers for good he might have a namesake to root for in the NBA. Wade's 10-year-old son Zaire is one of the nation's top 5th grade basketball prospects.

From Yahoo News:

As first posted by City League Hoops, and featured in the video above, Zaire Wade has emerged as one of the nation’s top fifth grade boys basketball players. The younger Wade completely tore apart the competition at the recent John Lucas Future of the Game camp and emerged as one of the most impressive young point guards on offer.

While Zaire Wade (anyone care to take a wager on how long it will be before someone nicknames him Congo or DRC?) may be as thin as any other beansprout shooting fifth grader, he shows plenty of the athletic gifts of his father, not to mention a similar deadly first step on his cuts to the basket.

Zaire Wade has also shown a knack to take over leadership of his scrimmage squads, an act similar to his father, who now shares those duties with James (he also seems to share the sense of humor both his father and LeBron show, but that’s another story).

Dwyane Wade appears to share something else with James, too: Zaire Wade’s affections. Given the fact that his father is a highly paid athlete who has his own sneakers (made by Chinese company Li-Ning, unlike LeBron's Nikes), one might assume that young Zaire would compete proudly sporting the latest D-Wades. He doesn’t. Instead, he played at the Future of the Game event wearing the latest LeBrons.

      I'm kinda disgruntled they got this championship celebration (celebrating a miami sports team...im already sick of em sucking money and not doin nuff charity work) on news while other folk get to watch trial coverage (which is actual news IMO) :tea:

    • http://www.landofpure.net FayMrsWhipfinityIfYewNassy :whip:

      although he does really seem to do a great Dad, i still hurt for his ex-wife having them taken from her.

      i hope she has good visitation.

      & at the same time, if anything (God forbid) happened to my marriage, i will be the 1st to admit that i'd want my hubby to raise him primarily. i can't teach him how to be a man :shrug:

      Anywhoo off topic on Ms. Allison Mathis (Bosh BM) fighting for 30gs a month...

      I used to feel sorry until it came out he gave ole girl a lump sum of over 100gs...now I don't know what she was doing with that money...but that's a LOT of money to be given and you end up on food stamps :tea:

      Good luck getting that 30gs sweetheart. I'm not Team Bosh, but i'm Team "Being smart with the cash when you have a kid to take care of". If he's paying for all other expenses in addition to giving her CS..she deserves NOT a penny more :tea:

      Like we on.
      You ever have to distance yourself from your “own” people on the job because they can’t seem to forget blacks are free or are just overall embarrassing? The custodian that works here speaks to me often but it’s always about eating or sleeping. He is over 50, overweight and has one tooth.. No lie (2 Chainz). I tried to help him eat better and overall be more professional but he just won’t listen. Today in the elevator with some pink toes he asks what was in my bag for lunch a salad? I said yes. He said I ate so much fried chicken this weekend I think I clucked in my sleep, you people kill me with all these salads. So after he got off the elevator the pink toe looked at me and I just shook my head. :smack:

    • libra80sbaby

      @Sandra. I just read that website about that lady with the "pseudo transgender" child. This lady and her husband need SERIOUS help!! She is doing all of this for media attention and is psychologically abusing her children in the process. This is a travesty!! :no: <--SMH

    • Miany

      @Fay... I would hope whatever happens we co-parent in our kids' best interest. Hypothetically, I would probably drop the boy with daddy but, I wanna have the option to keep my son when I want. Ion want court telling me a dayum bout my son. When my kids' schedule is decided, It's gone be between the folk who dropped drawers to make that baby.

      Why you didn't post the video link of him balling Sandra? He can hoop. He's a point guard and a natural passer.

      Has a good 3 pt shot.

      He reminds me of Kenny Anderson (Tammy's baby daddy on Basketball Wives), another left handed point guard with good handle.

      I see what you're saying Fay but I couldn't do it. My husband is stupid and he acts like an only child..... :thinking: kinda selfish... can't really think for the boy. Gotta tell his ass when it's time for the baby to eat or change or whatever. No I don't think he will let him starve but I try to keep a schedule and he just ain't one for the rigidness (that I think a man should have btw). Plus my baby is my widdle best fran and him can't weeve me. :(

      @Fay: I would want primary custody of my son in his younger years, but he would spend summers and every other wknd with his Dad...Once he becomes a teen, I would switch over and let Dad have the primary custody becuase that's when it matters the most.
