Dwyane Wade’s son Zaire wanted to meet Doris Burke (Video)

Dwyane Wade’s son Zaire is around some of the best basketball players in the world on a regular basis, but it’s not those elite athletes who really get him going. Nope.

Instead of mingling with some of Miami’s biggest celebrity fans or some of the players on the court, Zaire just really wanted to meet ESPN sideline reporter Doris Burke.

After the Miami Heat clinched their Eastern Conference finals series with the Indiana Pacers with a Game 6 win on Friday night, Burke made the interview rounds. She spoke with team owner Micky Arison, then LeBron James and then Wade. At the end of his interview, Dwyane signaled for his son to come over and embarrassed him on national TV by saying that the young lad wanted to meet Doris.

Doris was very accommodating and even gave him a hug. The bashful boy had a nice smile on his face afterwards:

By the way, Zaire is also a top up-and-coming basketball prospect, too.
