Gabrielle Union's husband, Dwyane Wade, may be enjoying his offseason, but the actress isn't done with the NBA quite yet.
Like so many basketball fans, Gabby couldn't help but weigh in on Golden State Warrior Draymond Green's suspension from Game 5 of the NBA Finals, for kicking Gab's friend and Wade's former teammate LeBron James in the, well, nuts.
The Being Mary Jane star, of course, sides with LeBron in the matter, which puts her at major odds with league MVP and Dubs super-WAG Ayesha Curry. Last night, Gabrielle couldn't help but throw a little shade at Ayesha on Twitter.
It all started with these tweets, which the ladies fired off late last night, after Golden State failed to clinch the championship against the Cavaliers:
Can refs get fined?— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) June 14, 2016
Funny you should ask... A wise woman once asked this very question 😎🤔 https://t.co/F7uYS5T9i5— Gabrielle Union (@itsgabrielleu) June 14, 2016
Fans, of course, interpreted this as subtle shade from Gabby to Ayesha, and flooded the actress's mentions with questions like this:
Was this shade lol or encouragement to know the answer ? https://t.co/qY0WGFCIBs— LightSkin Devil ... (@_ThaDopest) June 14, 2016
Looks like Ayesha wanted no part of this beef, though, and made a pre-emptive call to reach out to Gabrielle. The actress returned the favor by deading the potential stand-off right then and there:
😊 I gotchu https://t.co/OR93HMCpw1— Gabrielle Union (@itsgabrielleu) June 14, 2016
All you'd see is us drinking margaritas and laughing https://t.co/w9lKd4CcSn— Gabrielle Union (@itsgabrielleu) June 14, 2016
Well, that was close. Gotta say Ayesha was smart not to antagonize Gabrielle, because we've all seen what she's capable of when she really wants to shade. Watch BET Breaks above for a perfect example — or, shall we say, warning?
