LeBron James and Dwyane Wade won two championships together as members of the Miami Heat. Could the sons of the legendary NBA players do the same in college?


LeBron James Jr. is a class of 2023 recruit (he's just set to begin high school) while Zaire Wade is a class of 2020 product.

It's possible they could end up playing on the same college basketball team for the 2023-24 season.

Could that happen at Michigan?

One ESPN insider believes so following the Wolverines' hire of Juwan Howard.

"He’ll likely get Bronny James & Zaire Wade. Beilein culture was great, too. Fab Five culture? Fun times but nah," Fran Fraschilla tweeted.

Both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have weighed in on Michigan's hire. They like it.

Howard has no experience coaching college basketball, though he had been rising in the ranks in the NBA world, and could do some major damage on the recruiting trail.
