    I don't think we would ever say that in English. Best friend has the element of dearest or closest. And if we wanted to emphasize those, we would say it.

    He is one of my dearest friends.
    He is one of my closest friends.
    He is one of my best friends.
    He is my dearest/closest/best friend.

    He is one of my best friends -- he's very dear to me.
