Video: Zaire Wade shoots hoops with Heat SG Dwyane Wade during NBA All-Star Game warmups
Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade is in his final season in the NBA. With that comes one last All-Star game appearance. Wade is making the most out of the situation in part by warming up with his son, Zaire Wade.

This is the 13th All-Star game appearance for Wade, and probably his most emotional. It’s his last time able to enjoy the weekend as a player, which means it should be no surprise that he’s finding a way to make it extra special.
It’s hard to think of a better way to do that than to get a little shoot around in with your son.
Wade has spent all weekend with his son, creating some memorable moments. There have been interviews, games with LeBron James, and more.
This might be Zaire Wade’s first All-Star shootaround but that’s no reason to believe it will be his last. The 17-year-old already has Division One scholarship offers and a great teacher in his dad.
Right now though, the spotlight should be all on Dwyane Wade. The 37-year-old might be in his final season, but has a lot left in the tank. Clearly ,this move is all about wanting to spend time with his family (as shown by the shoot around) and not about his level of play.
Will the sure-fire Hall-of-Famer have one more big moment in him tonight? It will be fun to watch him on the court with the NBA’s best one last time. The crowd will certainly be into it whenever Wade or Dirk Nowitzki are in the game, and it will be exciting to see what they can do.
We know he’ll have a big fan in Zaire ready to cheer on his dad whenever that time should come.
If nothing happens tonight, we’ll still have the shoot around. In the end, that will probably be Dwyane Wade’s favorite part of the night no matter what happens anyways.
