Twitter Wonders If Dwyane Wade's Daughter Zaya Can Join Girls Basketball Team

The online conversation starts after a girl, who claims to be attending the prestigious school of the athelete's the transgender daughter, suggests that Zaya may be recruited to join the team.

AceShowbiz - Dwyane Wade's son Zaire has followed in the footsteps of his father by joining the basketball team a his school Sierra Canyon School. And now, people are wondering if the former athlete's transgender daughter Zaya will do the same or if she'll be able to join her school's girl's basketball team.

The conversation started after a girl, who claimed to be attending Zaya's prestigious school, suggested that Zaya might be recruited to join the team. The girl further alluded that the school was interested in having the 12-year-old in the team following its recent lost in the final game of the season.

According to existing California law, it is legal for Zaya to join the girls basketball team. Under the California Education Code, transgender athletes are allowed to compete based solely on their gender identity instead of their gender assigned at birth.

Zaya, meanwhile, has shown little interest in the sport that made her father famous. If anything, she might prefer doing something related to music as she took part in her school's choir performance during its concert. Being a doting dad, Dwyane showed support to her by attending the event earlier this week and even shared some clips of the show on his Instagram account.

"J.O.Y. ~ A Feeling Of Great Pleasure And Happiness! That's What Watching Zaya Sing And Dance Last Night Felt Like For Our Family," so Dwyane wrote in the caption. The video also saw his wife Gabrielle Union dancing and clapping while enjoying the performance.

Earlier this week, Zaya made her first red carpet appearance after she came out as transgender at the Truth Awards, an annual ceremony dedicated to celebrating accomplishments of the black LGBTQ+ community. She was joined by both her father and stepmother Gabrielle that night as the trio wore matching custom coordinating Richfresh suits.

Zaya was draped in a green suit jacket with black pants and a pink sash. Dwyane wore a mostly black suit with white color blocking and a pink shirt, while Gabrielle donned a mostly white suit with black color blocking and green straps underneath.

Posting on Instagram a photo of her daughter sashaying her way, Dwyane wrote in the caption, "Everyone allow her to re-introduce herself her name is Zaya Wade! Last night was Zaya's first red carpet and we couldn't have been prouder of how she handled the questions that were asked of her. She has emerged as one of the young faces and voices for the LGBTQ+ community. #truthawards."
