For people who have always dreamed of what a life of an NBA player looks like off the court now have a chance to get a glimpse of one particular player. Facebook Watch has recently just released a new five-series docu-series that is circled around NBA champion and Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Dwyane Wade. The series is following Dwyane Wade around during the offseason before he began his new season with the Cavaliers. The series is titled “BackCourt Wade” and premiered yesterday on November 20, 2017 and will air every Monday.
The series is jammed packed with some very memorable moments that fans can look forward to. Some of the moments include Wade traveling to Paris and Milan for Men’s Fashion Week, doing some golf practicing, caring for his precious dog and a sneak peek on what goes inside during Dwyane Wade’s business such as his Way of Wade brand and Wade Wine labels.
“I’ve enjoyed partnering with Facebook to share some of my off the court moments in this five-part series,” Wade said in a statement. “I’ve worked hard to continue to play the game of basketball, build a successful business with my team and enjoy the opportunities with my family and friends that life presents when you are willing to put in the hard work. I hope by sharing some of these candid moments that it helps inspire others to follow their dreams, take risks, challenge yourself to get through life’s obstacles, and take the time to appreciate and enjoy the life you work so hard to build.”
With Wade entering his 15th season as a professional basketball player, his mentality will certainly be different and it can be seen in the show and his interest which include fatherhood, fashion, family, and his business branding.
The new series featuring Wade is one of the few newest series Facebook is hosting featuring star athletes. The other sports-related shows Facebook has been “Ball in the Family” which is centered around Los Angeles Laker’s point guard Lonzo Ball and his talkative dad along with his two younger brothers, and the show starring Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch called “No Script with Marshawn Lynch”. These abundant shows complement the websites growing coverage of the sports world.
