Dwyane Wade, Evander Holyfield and Randall Cunningham all excelled in their sports. Wade won three NBA championships with the Miami Heat. Holyfield claimed boxing titles in three different decades. And Cunningham earned MVP honors in 1990. To try to live up those feats would be a major challenge. But their children are trying to follow in their fathers' footsteps.
The new documentary series Legacy: In the Shadow of Greatness follows Zaire Wade, Evan Holyfield and Vashti Cunningham as they try to excel in basketball, boxing and the high jump. Trying to dominate in any sport, especially starting so young, can take a toll on a person's mental health. When your dad is your coach, that can only make it tougher. Hopefully the series will address that, in addition to the highs and lows of winning and losing.
Legacy: In the Shadow of Greatness premieres exclusively on Discovery+ on March 8, with new episodes each week.
