Dwyane Wade won't attend California HS tourney after son is benched

Top high school basketball prospect Zaire Wade didn’t play in his team’s comeback win Tuesday night in the California state regional final. And his father, 13-time NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade, wasn’t happy about it. 

When asked on the NBA on TNT postgame show if he would be attending the state championship tourney to watch his son’s team, Wade gave a firm no.

“I will not be there,” he said, according to 247 Sports. “My son’s not playing, and I don’t want to do anything to the coach. I won’t be there. I won’t be there but I’ll be rooting for the kids.”

13-time NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade had his jersey retired by the Miami Heat at a ceremony last month.

Wade’s son plays on the same Sierra Canyon High School team as Bronny James, the son of LeBron James. However, the younger Wade tore a ligament in his ankle early this season and had his role changed once he returned to the team. 

Sierra Canyon coach Andre Chevalier did not comment about why Wade didn’t play in the regional final. The team’s next game is on Thursday, with the state championship scheduled for Saturday in Sacramento.
