Dwyane Wade does his daddy duty.
Ones of the perks of being the son of a professional athlete is that certain shopping trips are far more flexible in terms of financial resources. Take, for example, buying your first car. We've all been there, scraping together enough cash in order to buy something that hopefully runs consistently and doesn't have any major problems. In the case of Zaire, Wade's teenage son, let's just say the options are far more attractive as he's looking to buy his very first whip.
In a video of D-Wade's Snapchat that was shared by TMZ, the Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard visited a car dealership with his son to do some browsing before deciding on what model the youngster was ultimately going to take onto the road. The options that Papa Wade liked were the Audi Q5, which reportedly goes from anywhere between $40,000 to $50,000, or Audi Cabriolet convertible, which can be bought from anywhere between $50,000 to $60,000. There were no moves made in the video to make a purchase on the spot, but seeing his son sit in either vehicle got Wade more than a little jazzed. As he said at one point in the video clips, either model makes Zaire look like he's got some money. So, if he's like any normal teenager and focused on flexing a little from time to time, those should do the trick.
Towards the end of the video, the two happen upon a silver-colored Ferrari, a brand of automotive excellence that Wade Sr. is quite fond. He owns several luxury vehicles, including a $300,000 member of the Italian automaker's arsenal - in fact, Zaire has even driven his dad's Ferarri before. However, when his son gawked over the sports car and started to bring up how awesome it would be to rock a ride like that on the open road, Wade's answer was simple: "no." Unfortunately, Zaire's dream of getting behind the wheel of a Ferrari have been dashed for the time being. That's not to say that it's a dream that will never be realized - Zaire is a basketball prodigy in his own right - but for now, he'll have to "settle" for something like an Audi. If only...
