Gabrielle Union Was the Draymond Green of Her High School Basketball Team


-How are you? -I’m fantastic. But I got
to talk to you about — You have so much going on
right now. -A lot.
-Two giant projects. -Yeah.
-But then the biggest thing to happen to you — You have a
beautiful little baby with you. [ Cheers and applause ] How old is your baby?
-She’s 6 months old. -Oh, my gosh.
-Yeah. -Congratulations to you
and Dwayne, as well. Everything’s
just amazing, right, and better and just awesome? -We basically believe
that we’re, like, the parents to, like,
the newest X-Men. [ Laughter ] Like, everything
she does is like, “I don’t think
other babies do this.” [ Laughter ]
-Yeah. She’s a genius. -She’s a genius.
Well, she’s in swim class, and I posted a couple clips
on it of her in swim class, but, like, now she’s holding
her breath pretty much — She’s Aquaman, basically. [ Laughter ] -She’s Jason Momoa right now.
-Yeah. -Well, I know that she’s
definitely well read because I have the picture here,
Reading “DaDa” by Jimmy Fallon, and it’s a great book.
[ Audience “awws” ] [ Applause ]
Thank you. -We like to have a little plug
before we appear on the show. “Bring the Jimmy Fallon book! We’re gonna see him next week.
Just get it. It’s fine.” -Just put it
in front of her, yeah. -Is everyone just buying you
books and blankets? -Books, blanket, inappropriate
onesies, which I love. -Did you get
an inappropriate onesie? [ Laughter ]
-Well, I asked for them. -Oh, okay. I got it.
I gotcha. I never got one of those.
Yeah. -We got you.
-Yeah. How was Mother’s Day
with the new baby? -You know what?
I was a little nervous — what “D” would do
for my first Mother’s Day. You know, there’s a lot on it.
-Yeah. -And I’ve been waiting.
This is like the miracle. And he was like,
“Babe, I think I’ve got the most perfect
romantic night for you.” So, we kind of did
a little bit Saturday — Saturday night, and he showed up
with some Jersey Mike’s, like, an Italian sub. -You like Jersey Mike’s? -Oh, the Italian sub?
Are you kidding me? Oh, it’s amazing.
[ Laughter ] -I love that you love that.
-Yeah, and then like three different pies
and, like, a bottle of wine. I was like, “you’re perfect!” [ Laughter ]
“You complete me!” -Exactly.
What did people get you? Isn’t that the greatest thing?
How is he doing, by the way? Is he over his hangover?
-Oh. Oh, my gosh. -Last time he was on the show —
-He was so hungover. -Dude, he was like — He was like, “Dude, I don’t know
if I can make it out there.” -Yeah.
[ Laughter ] He woke up and he’s like,
“I think I got the flu.” And I’m like, “Ha, no.
You don’t have the flu.” [ Laughter ] I don’t know how you made it to
37 and never been hungover. -Yeah, he’s never been hungover.
It was fantastic. I was so excited to have him on. I go, “I can’t believe
I’m talking to Dwayne Wade.” And just —
first time he’s hungover. -Oh, he just flop sweat.
-Oh, he’s sweating. [ Laughter ]
-He’s like, “Is it hot in here? What’s happening?”
I’m like, “Nope. Baby, it’s a hangover.”
-But he still looked good. -Oh, he’s still cute. -But he’s not the only
athletic person in the family. I will say this.
-Oh, geez. -I found of photo from
your eighth-grade yearbook. “Most athletic.”
[ Cheers and applause ] That’s you there.
How cute. Are you kidding me?
How cute are you. -Oh, that’s, like,
with my braces and my haircut that was inspired
by Duran Duran. -Aha!
[ Laughter ] But, also, I found
this photo, as well. -Oh, yeah. -Little basketball photo
right there. See? Come on.
-We are truly loving basketball. -How were you
at high-school basketball? -I led the league in technicals. [ Laughter ] -Did you really?
-No, I really did. I was like the Draymond Green
of my time. -What?!
-You know, like, the Rasheed Wallace of my day. -You were?
-I talked cash-ish. -Wow! Really? -I once got a technical for talking trash
to a player’s mother. -[ Gasps ]
Gabrielle Union! -“Are you proud of yourself?!
You raised that!” [ Laughter ]
“You proud of yourself?! Way to go!”
[ Laughter ] -“You raised that?!”
[ Cheers and applause ] That’s a good burn.
Yeah. That’s a good one. Are you gonna be tough
on “America’s Got Talent”? -No. No, I’ve become a softy.
-That’s the old you. -Yeah, I mean, like I can’t —
like my whole career has just been one big long “no,”
and, you know, it’s depressing. So, I want to be
a part of telling people “yes” and making dreams come true. -Yeah, but you also got to give
a couple zingers in there. -You have to be really bad, like there was a poor girl
and — Spoiler alert — Who believed, truly,
in her heart that she had trained a chicken. “Ma’am, you know what’s
not trained? That chicken.” [ Laughter ] -“You raised that!
You raised that chicken!” [ Laughter ]
-But I just — I couldn’t. -No, of course not.
-She was so sweet, and I just — I was like, “So, next time” — Like, how do you give
constructive criticism for chicken —
-What did the chicken do? -Nothing that it was
suppose to do. [ Laughter ]
-Like It Was — -See? ‘Cause now I kind of want
to see this now. I’m rooting
for the chicken, man. That would be fantastic.
[ Laughter ] -It don’t make it.
-Okay, it doesn’t make it.

  11. Does anyone know who did Gabrielle Union's sex-change surgery? Was D-Wade gay before he married him/her? She/he looks good except for that man-face, which I imagine the doctors couldn't fix.

  12. Gabrielle Union is so gorgeous woman. I was always mesmerized with her beauty (Though I'm 100% heterosexual) that i used to watch her properly and i watched her movies. straight woman finding another woman so beautiful means she must be real stunner. Best of luck for her new projects. She is real example of black woman. Strong, beautiful, independant, wise. I watched her red table talk show with Jada Pinkett. They have learnt and grown so much as a human as a woman along the way of life . 💗 her.
