Dwyane Wade is teaming up with James Patterson to help kids read. The Miami ‘Heat’ star and bestselling author recently visited Ponce de Leon Middle School in Coral Gables to encourage students to read more.

Patterson, who has written several bestselling novels, has long been a supporter of anything that will increase the literacy rate among school-aged children telling the press, “It’s a massive problem. Dwyane and I have the same agenda: We want to get more kids reading. For me, this is about saving lives.”

With the same passion, Wade believes that books give kids big imaginations that lead to big dreams and success in life. “I was a big dreamer. Today, my life is so busy. … Reading is my time. I can become someone else. And the most fun I have is reading with my kids,” says the Miami ‘Heat’ player.

The students at Ponce de Leon Middle School enjoyed Dwyane and James’ company, and were overjoyed at the idea of reading a book when the two left. Wade has two kids-Zion and Zaire-with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches.

  2. I just realized that his name is spelled Dwyane and not Dewayne.Wtf! Anyway,he and Usher are in the same boat now because both of them got full custody of their boys.It looks like women hving babies by rich men is no longer working out in their favor.

    • You are wrong in this case. Those women were married to these men. In Dwades case he was with her since high school and her family took him in when he had nothing. What he did to his wife was wrong. She was with him before he had anything.

      • Is he supposed to stay with her even if he is unhappy, just because they took him in when he had nothing and because they were together since high school…..What is the right price for his happiness
