Zaire Wade is one talented basketball player in his own right. The Sierra Canyon High School athlete has recruits far and wide waiting with bated breath to hear as to what his post high school plans entail, yet despite Zaire’s awe-inspiring moves on the court, there is one basketball player that can still take him to school-his dad, Miami Heat legend, 38-year-old Dwyane Wade.

Wade has become quite the basketball prospect outside of his famous last name in his own right. The senior has had multiple college offers and he finished the season ranked as the No. 197 prospect in the 2020 Sierra Canyon High School class.

Wade gave his son some classic fatherly advice during their game, “You want to beat me, you gotta beat me.”
The former NBA player scored on his son relentlessly and definitely showcased some serious moves on the court, giving his a lesson on how to properly use his upper body strength against an opponent. And of course, Zaire didn’t like it.
After the game, Wade’s eldest son went on to mock his father about how he played their 1-on-1 game. “You win on post-ups, congratulations.”
So, just what are Zaire’s plans for after graduation? Well, the teen has decided that he will not play college basketball during the 2020-2021 school year. He will delay his first year of college to improve his game.

Zaire will play a post-graduate season at New Hampshire’s Brewster Academy, which has produced numerous NBA players throughout their history. Among the list of players that went on to the NBA from Brewster Academy is Utah Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell.
Whatever direction Zaire plans on going, we know that his number one fan, Dwayne Wade, will not only be in his corner, cheering him on along the way, but he will also make sure to take him to task, ensuring that he is truly ready to dominate the court.
