Dwyane Wade’s More Focused on Family Than Free Agency

The Associated Press reports: “Dwyane Wade has had June 20 circled for a long time. Not because Sunday will be exactly four years since the Miami Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks for the 2006 NBA title…For Wade, June 20 is significant for two other reasons — his young sons, Zaire and Zion. He’ll spend Father’s Day with them, something that hasn’t always been possible during a nasty divorce and custody fight that has waged since 2007 between the Heat star and his estranged wife. Yes, for the former NBA scoring champion, this Father’s Day is far bigger than the looming Free Agent Day. ‘You go through a whole season, even the last two seasons and feel incomplete in a way no matter what kind of success you have, because you don’t have the most important thing to you with you,’ Wade said in a telephone interview. ‘My boys. To be able to have this relationship with them as I have since this summer hit, it’s been probably the best feeling I’ve had since winning the championship.’ … This summer, amid all the free agency hubbub, Wade is taking parenting classes—just to ensure no missteps with the boys. ‘I have been out of their everyday lives for the last three years,’ Wade said. ‘I understand my parenting ways aren’t as much as someone who’s around them 80 percent of the time. I understand I have things to catch up on. I will get better at it. If I learn one thing, I’ll feel accomplished.’”

    Very nice…I wonder which free agent he will be at dinner with on the 21st though.

    This is tough. I remember when he was in college they did a spot on how mature he was having a wife and children at a young age. It difficult to see any man go thru this superstar or not. Best of luck d wade if its right for him to have custody then I wish him all the best. Gotta be tough to take care of the boys in season though.
