The sons of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will follow in their footsteps by playing on the same basketball team next season. James and Wade played for the Miami Heat from 2010 to 2014, when they racked up back-to-back championships in 2012 and 2013.
And now, according to the Los Angeles Times, their sons Bronny James, 14, and Zaire Wade, 17, will be playing for Sierra Canyon high school in the Los Angeles suburb of Chatsworth, California.
The school goes from kindergarten to 12th grade, and it has a high-profile elite-level basketball program. James’ 11-year-old son Bryce will be attending the school as well.
The James brothers transferred from Santa Monica Crossroads at the end of this past school year mainly for basketball reasons.
Bronny James will enter Sierra Canyon as a freshman and Wade — who transferred from a Florida school and already has scholarship offers from DePaul and Nebraska — will enroll as a senior. Both teens play the guard position.
On Thursday, Zaire Wade confirmed that he was pairing up with Bronny James in an Instagram post that showed both wearing Sierra Canyon jerseys.
“Hey LA,” he captioned the photo.
After news spread about both teens playing together, people expressed plenty of excitement and hoped they could see them in person one day.
“Next duo of the nba,” one person wrote.
“ESPN needs to televise every game until they graduate,” wrote another.
One person also predicted how things would go with the two young players teaming up.
“Zaire is a great playmaker who will probably run the PG spot because of his IQ and passing abilities,” that person wrote.
