Put some respect on Bryce Maximus’ jumper.

LeBron James’ youngest son was spotted going one-on-one with Dwyane Wade during halftime of Sierra Canyon’s matchup with Rancho Christian.

The results weren’t pretty — at least for D-Wade.

Video footage of their impromptu game showed the 12-year-old getting bucket after bucket.

The crowd appeared to love every second of it, cheering after every basket.

Bryce’s shooting prowess should come as no surprise. LeBron himself has dubbed his youngest son the “best shooter in the household.”

While it’s unclear if their game had a winner, there’s no doubt that Bryce’s jumper deserves respect. Just look at how much space Wade gave him.

LeBron James’ youngest son Bryce Maximus, 12, was recently seen playing one-on-one on Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade during halftime of Sierra Canyon’s matchup with Rancho Christian. The 12-year-old put on a jump shooting clinic.

A three-time all-defensive team member, Wade has no excuse for guarding the preteen like he was Ben Simmons. Bryce might be in middle school but he’s never too young to get clamped. Shooters know how to shoot and that 12-year-old clearly has the ratchet.

Having practically lived on the Sierra Canyon sideline this year, Wade should know just how skilled these young guys are getting. The former Heat star even said so himself, albeit about Slovenian wunderkind Luka Doncic.

What’s most surprising about Wade’s defense is he indicated in November that Zaire’s inevitable one-on-one challenge has motivated him to stay in shape. If this is what post-NBA career defense looks like, Wade doesn’t stand a chance against his oldest son.

Wade, take it from a pickup All-Star: hand down, man down.
