With the holidays around, people are finally getting a chance to spend some much needed time with their family.
And that also includes celebrity families bonding that are ready to battle it out on the court like the Wades. Dwyane has been out of the league since the completion of the 2018-19 and retired as the Miami Heat’s all-time leading scorer. But just because he doesn’t play professionally doesn’t mean he doesn’t still like to get a good workout in on the hardwood. And did we mention that his 6’2″ son, Zaire is just as competitive as his father? We’ve seen the teenager ball out alongside Bronny James as they both played for Sierra Canyon, but now we’ve finally got to see both Wade’s play against each other in a heated 1-on-1.
Dwyane may have two inches on his son, but he put up a good battle as the quick game included a five-second shot clock, which led to a lot of defensive contact in the paint. In the end, experience reigned supreme, and Zaire had no problem letting his pops know that it was because he lacked versatility.
“You won off of post-ups. Congratulations,” said Zaire as he suggested a new way to put the game back in his favor. “Play me all jumpers and see what happens.”
After commenting on his father’s weight, helping him continuously backing him down in the post, he said, “First of all, you’ve had the most fouls I’ve ever seen in a quick 1 v 1 game of basketball.”
Of course, Twitter loved the two showing their competitive edge and had some hilarious reactions, which you can check out below.
