James Johnson Shouts Out Dwyane Wade for Making Him a Better Father

1 Min Read

Although Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade is no longer on the court, the guard is still sending assists to current players.

On Father’s Day, forward James Johnson took time to thank for Wade showering him with knowledge and setting a good example of fatherhood.

Johnson, 32, has been spending a ton of time with his sons this offseason. The father of two makes it a priority to take his kids around and teach them about his family’s culture.

There isn’t a better example to look up to than Wade, who is widely known for being fantastic dad. In fact, one of Wade’s driving motivations for retiring was to be more present as a father.

His oldest son, Zaire, is currently fielding offers from colleges as he longs to make the NBA. While one child is on the cusp of going to college, another is still learning how to walk. Wade shocked fans earlier in the season when he and Gabrielle Union announced the birth of Kaavia James Union Wade.

Since retiring, the 2006 Finals MVP has been put on full-time dad duty.
