Wondering what the Miami Heat have up their sleeves for the postseason?

An ESPN Q&A with actress Gabrielle Union (who is also Dwyane Wade's longtime girlfriend) gifted us with a response that I think I can safely say no one was expecting when talking about the Heat and the playoffs.

It’s early still, but any thoughts about the playoffs this year or what you would love to see happen come June? 

I don’t want to put the horse before the carriage, but we’re in April and … we’re getting down to the wire. I’m very excited for when they unleash Eddy Curry on someone. I cannot wait for that day. I think we've been holding him back, and he’s like the bucking bronco ready to charge out of the gate. I’m really excited to see how it all jells and how it all comes together, and I think the Heat will be a force to be reckoned with. But it’s day-to-day, and it’s always a process. So I would never jinx anyone. 

So. Amazing.

Union not only gives us the visual of the Heat unleashing Eddy Curry like he's been waiting to bust out and wreak havoc on his opponents, she also calls him…a bucking bronco. I love everything about this answer. I especially love how she finishes her answer by saying, "I would never jinx anyone." 

Nah, no jinxing, Gabrielle; you just gave us a visual that keeps giving. 

Union also talks about dating Wade, playing H-O-R-S-E with him during the lockout and being a sports fan in the interview. None of the quotes compare to that one, though.

Now, who is going to ask LeBron about their secret weapon?
