LeBron James has a dream to one day play in the NBA with his son—but what if Dwyane Wade beats him to the punch? Folks don't seem to believe Wade could stick around the league that much longer, but if he can hang around for a few more years, he could suit up along with his son.
Tuesday, Zaire Wade posted footage from a Miami Pro League game in which he squared off with Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. In the clip, Wade cooked the 26-year-old Hardaway Jr., who averaged 17.5 points per game this season for New York.
It's only one clip, but wow—look at this kid.
Hardaway can't be too thrilled about Zaire putting him on blast like this, but you've got to give the kid props for going right at a (legitimately good) pro player. Overtime posted more footage from the game, which also featured pros Andre Drummond and Hassan Whiteside, and the footage adds credibility to the idea that Zaire is probably league-bound. Keep in mind that Little Wade is only 16 years old.
Zaire is 6'2" and 175 pounds. A member of the high school class of 2020, he's expected to receive offers from some of the top college programs in the country.
Then again, if things work out optimally, he could actually be entering the NBA Draft at that point. The new draft rules—which will purportedly allow high school players to forego college—are expected to go into effect as early as 2020.
