Video: Zaire Wade, Bronny James take turns throwing down dunks in practice
LeBron James and Dwyane Wade’s sons are following in their fathers’ footsteps. In fact, Bronny James and Zaire Wade are taking their friendship a bit further, as they are attending the same high school in Southern California (Sierra Canyon School).
During a recent practice, Bronny, who is now 14 years of age, and Zaire, 17, became involved in an impromptu dunk contest. Zaire went first, proceeding to throw down a high-rising two-handed jam with ease. After flashing a quick smile of acknowledgement, Bronny executed the exact same dunk, except off one foot instead of two feet.
Unfortunately, the video clip that follows ends before a winner is determined. One thing is clear, though: Bronny and Zaire have a bright future in basketball:
In an Instagram clip that was posted on Wednesday, Zaire can be seen making his way to the hoop in slow motion for a reverse, two-handed pump:
Bronny James and Zaire Wade decided to transfer to Sierra Canyon this summer. They aren’t the only star prospects on the team’s roster this season, though. Ziaire Williams and Brandon “BJ” Boston Jr. have joined the team as well. As a result, many high school hoops aficionados are labeling them a “superteam.”
Earlier this summer, MaxPreps sent out a tweet asking what should be expected of Bronny at Sierra Canyon. LeBron actually saw this tweet and decided to reply:
Expect a kid that will play for his teammates. Will work hard, pay his dues and when his number is called he’ll make mistakes like any kid but will be ready and coached very well. Someone who doesn’t care about rankings cause the only thing that matters is his team success. 🙏🏾💯 https://t.co/qfUeZN0pzO

For now, hoops fans will have to wait just a bit longer to see these two playing in the NBA:
