Zaya Wade Calls Dad Dwyane Wade One of Her “Best Friends” in Tribute

Dwyane Wade just scored a sweet tribute from his daughter Zaya Wade.

After the retired NBA star was honored at the 2023 Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony, the 16-year-old celebrated with a moving message.

“My dad is a Hall of Famer,” Zaya wrote on Instagram Aug. 13. “I’ve never been more proud in my life to know someone as kind, loving, and accepting as he is. He is one of my best friends. I love you dad.”

Dwyane, 41, was welcomed into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., on Aug. 12. Gene Bess, Gary Blair, Pau Gasol, Becky Hammon, David Hixon, Gene Keady, Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich, Jim Valvano and the 1976 U.S. Women’s Olympic Team were also honored.

Of course, Zaya wasn’t just expressing her pride on social media as she was also on-hand to mark her dad’s big night. In fact, the model was one of several family members there to take in the major milestone as Dwyane’s wife Gabrielle Union; son Zaire Wade, 21; daughter Kaavia Wade, 4; nephew Dahveon Morris, 21; as well as his sister Tragil Wade, mom Jolinda Wade and dad Dwyane Wade Sr. all attended the event at Symphony Hall.
