Gabrielle Union sat down with The Ringer’s Larry Wilmore last week to discuss her new film Breaking In, her memoir We’re Going to Need More Wine and the #MeToo movement. But the two basketball fans didn’t let their conversation go without discussing some NBA.

Union, who is married to Dwyane Wade, said that her husband could play for “two, three more years” towards the end of her interview on Wilmore’s Black on the Air podcast. She is careful to say that she doesn’t know if the Miami Heat’s greatest player will return next season or retire, though.

The comment from Union shouldn’t be surprising — she tweeted after Miami’s Game 5 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round that she hopes it isn’t the end.

Union also says that she’s rooting for the Cavaliers because of her and Wade’s longtime friendship with LeBron James. She (incorrectly) states that Wade would win a fourth ring if the Cavs win the championship.

In the free-flowing interview, Union also says that it was her, not Carmelo Anthony, who joined James, Wade and Chris Paul on a banana boat. See for yourself.
