Gabrielle Union's Trash-Talking Makes Richard Sherman Look Like a 'Zen Buddhist'

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is apparently a pretty tame trash-talker, at least in comparison to Dwyane Wade's fiancee, Gabrielle Union.

On Monday night's Conan, via, Union confessed that she is a big trash-talker during her fiancee's games. In fact, she claims that she makes the outspoken Sherman look like a "Zen Buddhist."

That's no easy task. Sherman's interview after the NFC Championship Game will live on forever as one of the wildest postgame interviews in sports history. Union wasn't impressed, however.

As she previously admitted on Conan, via, Union has been banned from sitting courtside because of her trash-talking habits. She doesn't hold back during games. She targets opposing players, referees and even Wade. 

Union once hit the Los Angeles Clippers' DeAndre Jordan with a great line. 

"That’s a terrible foul, DeAndre!” Union said. “I will unfollow you."

Nothing gets through to an NBA player like threatening to unfollow him on Twitter.

Does she really talk smack to her own fiancee? She said she does. Union doesn't call Wade by his name. Instead, she refers to him only by number.

Wade should be proud of his fiancee for yelling at opposing players and referees, but he probably wishes that Union wouldn't talk trash to him. She is, after all, supposed to be on his side.
