Dwyane Wade may not be the youngest player in the NBA, but he’s still got it when it comes to dunking. In Thursday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the 33-year-old Miami Heat star threw down some amazing slams to propel his team to a 97-95 victory.
When asked during a post-game interview about what inspires him to keep dunking even though it’s become more difficult for him, Wade told reporter Rachel Nichols that he likes to impress his kids. “I try to show them their pops can get up sometimes,” he said.
However, his son had a different impression of his dad’s performance. “He did alright,” he said.
Moral of the story: Don’t ever trust your kids to admit you’re cool, no matter who you are.
