Wade is the latest NBA superstar to express interest in soccer. Kobe Bryant is a veritable superfan of the sport, having spent part of his childhood in Italy and frequently attending matches and taking part in other soccer-related events. LeBron James also famously attended the 2014 World Cup final in Brazil, and Steve Nash has made no secret of his fandom.
