What if I told you the most passionate Heat fan when it comes to heckling, needling, and annoying players just happens to be the girlfriend of the team's franchise player?
It's a fact.
Gabrielle Union is her name, and irritating NBA players is her game -- when not dating her longtime boyfriend Dwyane Wade.
Union appeared this week as a guest on Conan O'Brien's late-night TBS show, and confessed that her badgering of players has gotten a bit out of control. For this reason, she's been given the boot from the front row. "I'm bad. ... I don't sit courtside, that got killed when I became as vocal," Union said.
Wade advised his woman to take her talents away from the floor.
"He said, 'We're gonna need you a few rows back 'cause I can hear everything'," Gabrielle explained to O'Brien.
Miami fans have a well-earned reputation when it comes to being apathetic toward professional sports, but not this actress, model and girlfriend.
"I'm like dance mom. ... I've become like Bobby Knight and like the Great Fettucini, it's bad. I scream like 'brick!' and 'air ball!'" she said.
Union later disclosed that Wade doesn't escape the wrath of her zingers. "Oh sure, I feel like who's gonna tell him if not me?"
Above all else, Gabrielle enjoys heckling players on opposing teams, and particularly the officials, including a rather famous 72-year-old referee.
"Recently, like maybe last week, there was an older ref, perhaps it was Dick Bavetta, and I said, 'You'll get your Viagra if you just make a call,'" Union said.
Union was appearing on Conan O'Brien's show to promote her move, "Think Like a Man."
