Dwyane Wade has definitely gone through a transformation before our eyes. In between experimenting with different styles of fashion, and strolling down the beach with LeBron James, Wade has his hands full with on-the-court and off-the-court issues. However it doesn’t seem to affect his game. Day in and day out he continues to show up. JET Magazine was able to catch up with the Miami Heat star for a candid interview about raising his sons, and his own-going legal drama with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches. Wade on his reason for pushing through the difficult custody battle: “I didn’t set out to get full custody but I wasn’t able to see my kids the way I wanted and I’m not a parent who’s going to run away from his responsibilities. I was probably a terrible husband, but I pride myself on being a good dad.” Wade on his rocky relationship with estranged ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches: “It’s been six years and hopefully one day she and I can get to the point where it’s a lot easier than it is now to co-parent.” Mom Jolinda Wade on how Dwyane’s dad impacted his fathering: “Dwyane came up not having a father around, so he didn’t think he was missing anything. But having his father take over the key role in parenting was very impactful. That was the first view he got as a young man to see what to do and what not to do.” Dwyane on his fathering skills of his two sons Zaire, 11, and Zion, 5 and nephew Dahveon Morris, 11 (who he has legal guardianship of): “I’m the kind of parent who asks my kids questions like what would be your ideal thing to do in the summer? This year it’s Disney World,” explains Wade, the proud father of two boys. Even though I make the final decision, I want them to feel involved. Not only in vacations but other things as well.” Dwyane Wade’s issue of JET Magazine hits the stands today, May 20, 2013.
