A tough custody fight between NBA player Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife ended over the weekend when a judge awarded him sole custody of the couple’s two sons.

A lawyer for the mother, Siohvaughn Wade, told the Chicago Tribune the judge made a mistake.

"Unfortunately I think the court got it wrong and it’s not in the best interest of these children and fails to recognize that Siohvaughn Wade has been a wonderful mother and a provider for these children, educationally, emotionally and physically," Attorney Michael A. Haber said.

The 8- and 3-year-old boys will live immediately move from Illinois to Florida, where they'll live with Wade while he plays for the Miami Heat.

Wade accused his ex-wife of trying to turn the children against him, an argument the court seems to have believed.  His lawyer told the paper Wade will try to build a relationship with the children's mother, in the hopes that she'll play a positive role in their lives.  Siohvaughn Wade will be able to visit the boys every other weekend.  She'll have custody of them for part of the summer, as well as during All Star Weekend, and if the Miami Heat are in the NBA finals.

Dwyane Wade will pay for his ex-wife to fly to and from Illinois to see the children.
