If you mess with Gabrielle Union’s husband Dwyane Wade, expect to get checked! Gabby threw the ultimate shade towards retired NBA baller Charles Barkley after he said D. Wade didn’t deserve to make the All-Star team. Take a seat and grab some tea under her palm tree inside….
Miami Heat baller Dwyane Wade lucked up on a ride or die chick when he married “Being Mary Jane” star Gabrielle Union. Gabby is NOT here for anyone shading her man and will politely throw it right back.
Here’s how it went down….
Last night, retired NBA baller turned “Inside the NBA” analyst Charles Barkley was giving his honest opinion on this year’s All-Star team line up. And he believes Dwyane Wade should NOT have been chosen to play in this year’s NBA All-Star Game (going down Feb. 15th in NYC).
His reason? Well, he thinks D. Wade is a great player, but said the Miami Heat guard didn’t particularly have an “all-star year”. During the TNT broadcast he said,
“Dwyane’s great, [he’s] a Hall of Famer, but he didn’t deserve to make the All-Star team.” He added, “Dwyane Wade is not having an all-star year”.
His comments clearly didn’t sit well with Gabby, so she popped back at the retired NBA player with some epic shade. She tweeted:
“Forgive Charles. .. Kenny Smith is a 2x champion & his opinion is most sound,” she said. “It’s like me talkin bout Meryl Streep but I ain’t won nuthin.”
Now let’s put it in perspective. Kenny Smith, who hosts alongside Charles on “Inside the NBA”, is also a former NBA star who brought home two NBA championships during his career. He felt D. Wade deserved to be on the team. However, Charles did NOT win ANY NBA championships during his career! Chile… the shade!
As the show went on, Charles was tipped off about Gabby’s tweet and he fired back at her saying,
“Well listen, first of all never mention you and Meryl Streep in the same sentence again. Meryl Streep would never be on ‘Snakes On A Plane’ or ‘Madea’”.
Kenny started calling Charles out, saying he was out of order. He continued,
“Well she could have been. I’ve seen her act, she could have been on ‘Snakes On A Plane’ or ‘Madea’. She’s taking shots at me. She’s pretty, she’s very pretty. I’m not one of them people who’s going to turn the other cheek. You say something bad about me, I’m going to say something about you.”
