Dwyane Wade is protecting his team off the court.

In an Oct. 7 interview on Today, the retired NBA star spoke about the decision he and wife Gabrielle Union made.

To limit comments on daughter Zaya Wade's Instagram account for her mental health.

Explaining that he and Gabrielle had already seen "all the negativity that comes with social media and the comments."

Dwyane shared that they didn't want the same for 15-year-old Zaya, who came out as transgender in 2020.  

"You know, Zaire's conversation was about sports," the athlete noted about the online comments.

"Zaya's is about what a lot of people don't even really understand and get."

So Dwyane, 40, and Gabrielle 49, made sure they had a discussion with Zaya about being on social media.

"We want to make sure that if she's going to be on social media—she's going to show people her life—it's going to be the people that she wants that's in her circle," the sports commentator said.
