Superstar players in the NBA, such as Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade often give back to the youth during the summer by holding their own respective basketball summer camps for young children.
This past Monday, Dwyane Wade held his summer camp at the Nova Southeastern University campus. During a game of knockout, Wade found himself battling kids for the victory.
To set the record straight, Wade’s actions might have in fact been playful, but for us fans, we can’t help to notice some plays that gave the impression that D-Wade did not want to lose this little game of knockout at all.
First, for people who haven’t played “knockout,” the rules of this basketball activity is simple. The objective is to make shots in order to continue playing. In order to eliminate a player, the trailing player must make a shot before the leading player. It’s a game where the last player would be considered the winner.
So back to D-Wade and the kids. In the video, it’s apparent that Wade and the children were indeed having a lot of fun. As players were being eliminated from the game, at the end, it came down to D-Wade and a young kid named Robert.
Little Robert was determined to win. The young kid was hustling for the ball and really focusing on making the baskets. Wade at the same time was nonchalant for the most part, with the exception of two hilarious plays that occurred during the end.
To be quite honest, I love Dwyane Wade and I think “Flash” is one of the most clutch players in the NBA, but all jokes aside, blocking the kid at one point and then trying to block him again at the very end was hilarious. Let’s face it, D-Wade did not want to lose.
Putting it all together, I would’ve probably done the same thing, because who wants to lose period? If you ever played sports, losing never comes easy to swallow, especially for professional athletes. At the end of the day, I am pretty sure D-Wade still lovesss the KIDS.
