Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade was also known by the nickname “Flash”. Naturally, when his son Zaire started playing basketball people called him “Young Flash”. But D-Wade wanted Zaire to have his own nickname, as revealed by a video which the young Wade posted on Instagram.

“It’s always gonna be “Young D-Wade”, “Young Flash” whatever the case may be because I heard them calling him “Young Flash,”” the two-time NBA champion said on the video. “That’s cool but I want to give him his own name. That goes with the… you know, that goes with this so “Young DNA.”

Zaire Wade, 18 years old, left Sierra Canyon and will to continue his career in Brewster Academy in Wolfesboro, New Hampshire, which means he will part with his teammate LeBron “Bronny” James Jr.
