Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade's Gabrielle Union (with the hat), and LeBron James' Savannah Brinson (in purple) enjoy Miami Beach as their men prepare for the Boston Celtics yesterday

*It’s obvious to  NBA fans that Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are on a mission to win their first of  at least 1,2,3, 4, 5, 6, 7 championships, their ladies are left to keep themselves occupied the best way they know how. Have fun on Miami Beach!

Gossip Extra‘s paps ran into BFFs Gabrielle Union, Wade’s actress girlfriend, and Savannah Brinson, James’ fiancee and mother of their two children, on the sand yesterday. Hours later, Wade an James beat the Boston Celtics at the Triple A downtown to win the opening game of the Eastern Conference Finals.

While the two ladies couldn’t be more different — and not just because Union’s acting career’s looking up at “Think Like a Man” unexpectedly scored big at the box office while Brinson’s a homemaker – they have hit it off since James brought his talents to South Beach.
