Dwyane Wade's Son Zaire Can Already Beat You at Basketball
In Europe, it's not uncommon to sign promising kids to pro contracts well before their voice changes. Real Madrid signed a 7-year-old prodigy a couple of years ago, and Arsenal supposedly talked about giving a youth contract to former star Robin van Persie's 5-year-old kid, the spectacularly named Shaqueel Van Persie.
So why shouldn't the Miami Heat celebrate its title by locking up Zaire Wade, Dwyane's 11-year-old son who already has a better crossover move than Norris Cole? Zaire's mixtape is blowing up the web this morning.
That video isn't just cherry-picking his best moments, either; the younger Wade recently dominated the John Lucas Future of the Game camp, Yahoo reports, and has shown a D-Wade-like tendency to take over squads as a leader on the court.
Chalmers is expendable. Zaire in 2016!
