Dwyane Wade frustrated about son’s playing time during high school title game

Bulls

If you grew up playing sports, you probably remember some cringe-inducing moments when parents got frustrated with the coaches and vice versa. It was probably awkward to watch as young athlete. Now imagine your dad is Dwyane Wade and all this is happening on a national stage.

Chicagoland native and NBA legend Dwyane Wade said he wouldn’t be attending his son, Zaire Wade’s, high school basketball title game on Tuesday’s edition of “Inside the NBA.”

Zaire Wade is a senior at Sierra Canyon High School alongside LeBron James’ son, Bronny, and five-star seventh ranked prospect Ziaire Williams. It’s a difficult high school team to earn playing time on, with multiple highly ranked prospects playing for the Trailblazers.

Zaire Wade is a three-star prospect in the 2020 class who currently has offers from DePaul, Nebraska, Rhode Island and Toledo, according to ESPN. At 6-foot-2, Zaire Wade plays at wing and averages 4.3 points per game. He had been injured earlier this season, certainly not helping increase his minutes. Dwyane Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union have attended several Sierra Canyon games to support Zaire this season.

Hopefully Dwyane Wade will be able to have a moment to cool off and continue to support his son’s team, even when disagreements with the coach arise.
