Dwyane Wade flops big time after James Harden fakes him out (GIF)

Dwyane Wade James HardenDwyane Wade was beat by James Harden during Tuesday night’s Houston Rockets-Miami Heat game, so he reached into his bag of dirty tricks to bail himself out.

After Harden caught him with a fake and got past him, Wade pretended like he was hit by a flailing Harden arm and went down for the count. I’m pretty sure this was at the end of the first half and Harden was called for an offensive foul on the play. Hopefully the NBA will review the play and hit Wade with a flopping fine.

And come on, Wade, what’s up with that? Did you see Mario Chalmers pulling any of that crap when Harden just abused him off the dribble on this play?

Maybe Wade learned the move from LeBron, a known flopper who says “any way you can get an advantage.

LeBron James gave Dwyane Wade some serious side eye after dropped pass (GIF)

LeBron James side eye

You know that look your wife or girlfriend gives you when she asks what the Valentine’s Day plans are and you tell her “staying home and watching you cook me dinner”? Yeah, that’s the glance LeBron James shot Dwyane Wade after a turnover towards the end of the Heat’s game against the Clippers on Wednesday night.

LeBron shot Wade some daggers after he dropped a pass for a turnover in the final two minutes of the game. The Heat were only up 109-105 at the time, so you can understand why things were so intense and why James had little tolerance for mistakes. He didn’t quite go Mario Chalmers on Wade, but that was funny to see.

Gabrielle Union: I’m open with Dwayne Wade about my bathroom habits

Dywane-Wade-Gabrielle-UnionHopefully Dwyane Wade keeps an ample supply of air fresheners around his house, because his fiancee Gabrielle Union has a high-fiber diet. What does that mean? According to her, she breaks wind and goes to the bathroom a lot and isn’t shy about it.

During an appearance on “Chelsea Lately” Tuesday night, the topic of Union’s new show “Being Mary Jane” came up. Apparently Gabby’s character uses the bathroom a lot in the BET original series. She said she does the same at home and D-Wade knows it.

“There’s none of that I don’t fart, I don’t poop,” Union said of her relationship with Wade. “I have a high-fiber diet. This is happening. Like right from jump, I’m gonna be in there.”

Chelsea wholeheartedly agreed with Gabrielle that serious relationships should always involve an openness when it comes to bowel movements. Union then said there would be a problem if she waited until after she got her engagement ring to reveal that she takes a lot of dumps.

“If I get this (flashes engagement ring) and then later I’m like, ‘Oh, by the way, I go three times a day and leave the door open. And I don’t light a match,’” Union joked.

Breakfast, anyone?

Did LeBron James’ Instagram birthday note to Dwyane Wade hint at a future split?

LeBron James Dwyane Wade

LeBron James posted a nice, heartfelt happy birthday message to his buddy Dwyane Wade on Friday, but there’s one particular line from the note that has people wondering about the future.

In the note, James went through the friendship the two have developed, but then he threw in a line about “no matter what happens in the future” that is somewhat of a head-scratcher:

Happy Bday to my running mate, homie, brother, and most of all straight up friend! The friendship we’ve created our rookie year at pre draft camp was pure and that’s why we stuck together from that point on! Obviously didn’t know we would eventually become teammates and do the things we’ve done so far. I came to Miami for 2 reasons. To play with U and to win championships and I can’t thank u enough for the sacrifice you’ve made since I arrived homie! No matter what happens in the future we stuck together like brothers for life. And no matter what they say, u still a BAD Mutha-Shut-Yo-Mouth out there on that court! @dwyanewade. Oh almost forgot u old as dirt! Boy you look 40. Hahaha! #TreyBallBDay #YouASuckaOnYoBDay

I don’t know about you, but that “no matter what happens in the future” isn’t exactly a good sign to me. That’s the type of line you say to a girlfriend before you break up with her.

Though some people looked at this as a sign that LeBron could leave the Miami Heat in the future, I think it’s more about what will happen with Wade. Wade just turned 32 years old. LeBron just turned 29. Wade seems to have had more physical damage done to his body in the form of injuries, so it’s natural to believe his career will come to an end before LeBron’s does and that James will be playing on the Heat without Wade. I think that’s what this was about, rather than a hint that LeBron will be leaving the team.

Dwyane Wade missed a wide open layup (GIF)

Dwyane-Wade-misses-layupThe Miami Heat lost at home to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, and Dwyane Wade was no help. With the Heat trailing 74-63 early in the third quarter, Wade missed a wide open layup.

In reality, Miami likely would have lost even if Wade was able to score on a play that most 10-year-olds can execute. Stephen Curry proved too much to handle, as he scored 36 points and was 8-for-15 from beyond the arc.

Still, the layup was a fitting addition to a rough week for Wade. First news surfaced that he had a kid with a woman who is not his fiancee, and now D-Wade bricks a layup. I’m sure he’s hoping 2014 gets better from this moment on.

Aja Metoyer confirmed to be Dwyane Wade’s baby mama

Aja Metoyer

Everyone was wondering who the mother of Dwyane Wade’s new baby son is, and we now have the answer: it’s Aja Metoyer.

Aja is 30 years old and listed as the mother of the child, according to a birth certificate obtained by TMZ Sports. The child’s name is Xavier Zechariah Wade, and he was born on Nov. 10.

TMZ says Aja has two other children, and Damon Wayans Jr. is the father of both.

Wade has known Metoyer for at least three years. In 2010, back when Aja had a Twitter account, Wade wished her and several other women a happy Mother’s Day:

Though it might look bad that Aja Metoyer has a child with Dwyane Wade, reports say she is not a groupie or jumpoff. Media Take Out says Metoyer has her own career and life and she and Dwyane are working to handle this amicably. They also have pictures from Aja’s purported baby shower.

So that’s not a bad score for Aja. She has two kids with Damon Wayans Jr. and one with Dwyane Wade. At least in terms of child support, she should be all set.

Dwyane Wade has a kid from another woman, not Gabrielle Union

Dwyane WadeDwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union recently got engaged, but not all was going smoothly with their relationship.

Though the two have been together since 2007, Wade said in an interview this year that the two took a break earlier this year. Apparently Wade ended up fathering a child with another woman during their time apart.

Entertainment Tonight reports that Wade recently spent time with his new baby son. They say Union was aware of the baby prior to Wade proposing and that the two are working things out. Wade also supposedly has known the mother of his most recent child for many years.

Wade had two sons — Zaire and Zion — with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches. He has full custody of the two boys. This new baby boy is his third child. Entertainment Tonight also reports that Wade raises his nephew.

Wade’s new son is a month old. He spoke about the son to the media on Monday and called his boy a “blessing.”
