Two houses that have blessed the basketball world for the last 20 years will team up once again.
Zaire Wade broke the news on Instagram last week that he will be moving to LA with his cousin Dahveon Morris to play ball with Bronny James at Sierra Canyon in 2019-20.
The Decision 2.0 (High School Edition) caught viral attention on social media and even made ESPN headlines.
What’s not to love? I’m not sure if it’s the nostalgia from the Miami Heat days or the realization that the legacy of the Wade-James duo is continuing, but this feels like the best basketball news we’ve had all year.
The anticipation is building, and the hype is real. Wade to James alley-oops and championship runs will be reborn, even if it’s just for one more year.
There couldn’t be a more qualified pair of mentors for these kids than King James and Father Prime. Both LeBron and Dwyane know exactly what it takes to emerge as a high school talent, to an NBA prospect, to an All-Time great. The NBA legends have “been there and done that”, but with much more difficult circumstances along the way.
It’s hard to believe Dwyane Wade and LeBron James joined forces in Miami almost a decade ago. The two set the league on fire, carving their names together in history with some of the most electrifying and gifted display of basketball we have ever seen. They gave us 4 straight Finals appearances, the best alley-oops in the business, and iconic moments that will never be matched or replicated.
Both basketball families have paved a path of greatness. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have created the heirloom, now Zaire Wade, Dahveon Morris, and Bronny James will expand on it.
Let’s look at both Royal Basketball Family timelines, from the rise of Dwyane and LeBron, to the emergence of Zaire and Bronny.
