Every great father has obstacles that he must overcome. For Miami Heat players Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, those obstacles come in the form of custody battles.


For months, Chris Bosh has battled it out with his 3-year-old daughter’s mother, Allison Mathis, in an effort to find common ground for the child’s sake. The Miami ‘Heat’ player recently asked Mathis to let him take their daughter to London for the 2012 Olympic Games. It was Chris’ hope that the tot would see him in action, but a judge ruled in favor of Allison meaning that little Trinity must watch her father play in the Olympics from home this year.

Meanwhile, Dwyane Wade has asked a judge to restrict ex-wife Siovaughn Funches-Wade’s visitation rights after she refused to allow Dwyane’s sister to pick up their sons Zaire,10, and Zion,5, during the Father’s Day weekend. Wade expressed his discontent in the emergency motion to restrict Siovaughn’s rights, saying, “My children have been subjected to a great deal of ‘drama/trauma’ as a result of (their mother’s) conduct throughout this case.”

Siovaughn has since been charged with attempting to abduct the former couple’s two sons.  The Miami Heat guard won sole custody of his two sons last year.
