Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union React To Game 5 Loss!



As the San Antonio Spurs held their 2014 Larry O’Brien championship trophies high on Sunday night, the Miami Heat went home empty handed and heads low following their 104-87 loss to Tony Parker and company.

At the start of the game, Heat star LeBron James told his teammates to follow his lead, but the team just couldn’t find their rhythm. Dwyane Wade took to Instagram following the game to address his fans, writing:

“Win or lose… These are my brothers… Plus 12 others that’s not pictures here. We win together as champions and lose together as champions. #HeadsHigh.” Wade included a snapshot of himself posing with LeBron and Chris Bosh.

Wade’s fiancee, Gabrielle Union also responded to the big loss, writing on Twitter:

“You win w/ dignity & you lose w/dignity. When the Heat won last year Spurs fans &players were kind and classy to the families and players. Never sink in the mid when things don’t go ur way. #LoveAndLigh.”

“#HeatNation stand up! Thank you for supporting the team, the organization & our families. We are grateful & humbled, so until next year… LETS GO HEAT!”

As for the Spurs, the team in all their glory, also took to social media to share their excitement. Parker posted an image on Facebook simply writing:



On Sunday night, Kawhi Leonard became the youngest finals MVP since 1999 when Tim Duncan was also 20-years-old. “Right now, it’s just surreal to me,” Leonard after wining the award. “I have a great group of guys behind me … I just want to thank God, my parents and everybody.”



Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
