For 18-year-old Zaire Wade, the eldest son of NBA legend Dwyane Wade, living up to his father’s legacy is a tall order, but he puts in the work and has his dad’s support each step of the way.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, people have spent their time at home under quarantine, but Zaire Wade has spent his summer working out and training alongside his esteemed father. Zaire recently posted a pair of candids of himself and Dwyane working out together on his Instagram. He captioned the post: “Where I get it from? These 💂🏿♂️ always wonder who, then they meet my pop and tell em Zwade just a younger you 🗣 #ItsAllWork @dwyanewade.” Another post has Zaire running on a treadmill and in the caption, he dropped a line from the song “Right Above It” by Lil Wayne featuring Drake: “You 💂🏿♂️ can’t see me but never overlook me 🚶🏾♂️.”
Dwyane Wade is proud to pass down his skills to his son and respects his work ethic and commitment. He also took to Instagram to post pics training his son. He wrote in the caption: “Camp Wade 💪🏾 I love your commitment this summer YnG! Focus on the work and everything else becomes easy.”
In June, Zaire Wade graduated from Sierra Canyon High School in California, where he played his senior season alongside his talented teammates like B.J. Boston, Stanford commit Ziaire Williams, and Bronny James, son of NBA great LeBron James. Unfortunately, Zaire suffered an ankle injury during the season and was given less playing time when he returned; so he decided to transfer to Brewster Academy in New Hampshire for a post-grad year before moving on to college. Zaire says of Brewster: “There ain’t nothing to do over there but get better,” and with all the training he gets from his legendary dad, he’ll get a chance to prove it.
