NBA star and Obama hoops mate Dwyane Wade coming to Washington

Dwyane Wade is heading to D.C., but this time around, it appears he’ll be signing books rather than shooting hoops with President Obama.

The Miami Heat player, who famously played in a 2010 pickup game at the White House with the commander in chief, tells ITK it would be “great” to compete in a basketball rematch against Obama.

But instead of hitting the court, the NBA star will be busy on Saturday afternoon meeting fans as he signs copies of his new book, A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball, at Washington’s Politics and Prose bookstore. In the tome, the single dad of two sons details his childhood and how it affected his own parenting experiences.

We hear Wade, who is part of Obama’s Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative, will also be speaking on a Saturday panel called “Demystifying the World of Black Fathers” at the Congressional Black Caucus.
