Even before setting foot on an NBA court as a professional basketball player, Dwyane Wade’s son has already taken part in an ESPY award.
Zaire Wade’s reenactment of his father’s 2007 Converse commercial during Dwyane Wade’s final home game won the ESPY for Best Moment Wednesday night. The award was shared with the NFL’s Rob Gronkowski and American World Cup alpine ski racer Lindsey Vonn.

Zaire Wade is following in his father’s footsteps as he dreams of playing in the NBA someday. The fact that he plays somewhat like the Miami Heat legend speaks volumes about his potential to make it to the league. Who knows? He might win an ESPY for Best Athlete someday as well.
