Dwyane Wade’s older son Zaire is a top middle school basketball prospect. Earlier this year, a highlight compilation of Zaire balling as a 5th-grader went viral. Now Zaire is in 6th grade, and his dad is working him extra hard.
Wade shared a few photos and a video on his Instagram account Sunday of how he’s training Zaire. In the video, you can see Zaire dribbling balls with Dwyane holding two ropes for resistance. In the photos, you can see Zaire doing various forms of resistance training:
“Late night workout for my lil man… #HeGotNext” Wade captioned the photo.
“They learn by watching you…You must to show them the way…#HeGotNext” Wade captioned the next photo.
That’s a lot of hard work for a sixth grader to put in, but like Dwyane said, they learn by watching you, so his son is learning from one of the best.
What’s interesting is that Wade posting these photos and videos comes shortly after LeBron James shared videos on Instagram of his son, Bronny, playing well in his youth basketball leagues. Maybe there’s some friendly competition going on there?
Here is a highlight video of Zaire as a 5th-grader:
