Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat is one of the best players in basketball right now. He has been at the top of his game for a while now and he just won another title this past year. During this offseason, Wade has a new book coming out and he stopped by “The View” to discuss it. Yes, you read that right.
There was not exactly anything earth shattering in this interview, but I do find it funny to see Wade talking basketball with this group of women. The basketball talk did not last long as the conversation switched to his clothes and finally to his book.
I give Wade a lot of flack for a lot of things, but seeing how much he cares for his kids can win everyone over. I may not like Wade the basketball player, but Wade the human being is certainly a great guy. He did not have to take over full custody of both of his kids, but he did it because it would be best for them.
We live in an age where a lot of athletes have a ton of kids and they do not exactly see them on an everyday basis. In fact, they might not even know how many kids they actually have. (You can insert your own Antonio Cromartie joke here–I won’t waste your time with one.)
I am not going to go out of my way to read the book, but it sounds like it has some good insight into the life of Wade as a father and a son. It might not be something you buy for a dedicated sports fan but if you want to get your girlfriend or wife interested in the life of a basketball player, this might be the one.
