OK..OK… Dwayne Wade is back on my A-List. Dwayne recently appeared on “Inside the NBA” and attempted to set the record straight about all those nasty rumors that he’s rubbin skin with Star Jones. When asked by Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson what the deal was with the “relationship,” Wade simply answered “”We’re friends, just like a lot of celebrities. We are friends.” Of course, they didn’t let him off the hook that easy:
”Are you the kind of friends that drink out of one cup with two straws?” Smith persisted, referring to a much-discussed photo of Wade, 26, and Jones, the 46-year-old TV personality who recently filed for divorce, at a tennis match. ”Those kind of friends?” ”We are friends. That’s all,” said Wade, who is married to his high school sweetheart and has two sons. ”Good friends?” Barkley interjected. ”Naw, Chuck,” Wade said with a smile.
Some hilarity ensued. Barkley broke through the commotion to say, ”I like Star. She’s a cougar.” ”What’s a cougar?” Smith asked, not so innocently, a perfect lob to Barkley. Sir Charles promptly slammed the ball home: ”Preying on a young Dwyane Wade.” (Source)
