LeBron and Wade’s Kids
Teaming Up Doesn’t Guarantee Titles
… Says Kenny Smith

Don’t plan the parades at Sierra Canyon High just yet … ’cause the next generation of the James/Wade duo teaming up does NOT mean it’ll have the same results as their dads — so says Kenny Smith.
The basketball world pretty much lost their minds when the news broke that freshman Bronny James and senior Zaire Wade will be teammates next season — bringing back memories of the Peanut Butter and Jelly combo, LeBron and D-Wade, had in Miami.
The Jet — who has an AAU team and knows his stuff about youth hoops — says Bronny and Zaire will be able to contend off the rip … but California basketball is filled with massive, skilled kids … so it’ll be tough.
“There’s multiple things that you need,” Kenny says … “Especially Bronny being so young, only being a freshman. The age difference is tough.”
Of course, their daddies won 2 titles with the Heat … and created tons of highlights together. Smith sees that in their future as well.
“They’ll be good and entertaining. But, this is California basketball … just realize it’s real.”
