Thanks NBA, now Dwyane Wade can’t afford a nice birthday present for Gabrielle Union

Saturday October 29th, 2016

Dwyane Wade is pretty bummed about getting fined $25,000 for making a pretty harmless throat slash gesture this week, and now his wife Gabrielle Union is too.

Wade posted a nice Instagram on her 44th birthday Saturday, and in it said that he couldn’t afford a nice gift because of the big fine. “Set a brother back like a big dog,” he wrote.

Nice going, NBA. Let the man live!
