You Need to See This Photo of Dwyane Wade Falling on a Courtside Chrissy Teigen & John Legend

When we imagine sitting courtside at an NBA game, we immediately think of uniforms, sweat and an endless supply of alcohol. Well, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend just learned the hard way that close seats come at a dangerous cost.

Yesterday, the famous duo watched the Miami Heat defeat the Philadelphia 76ers at the American Airlines Arena in Florida. During the game, Dwyane Wade missed a basket and stumbled into the couple’s seats, causing Teigen to spill her drink on Legend. (Cue Dave Matthews Band’s “Crash into Me.”)

It was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, but—much to our delight—the entire thing was captured by photographers.

The candid snap shows Wade casually sitting on the couple, who didn’t stand a chance with their plastic cups.

After the mishap, Teigen turned to Wade’s wife, Gabrielle Union, and her expression says it all.

The sporting event was a big deal for Wade, since it was his last ever NBA home game (for the regular season, at least.) The professional basketball player finished strong with 30 points, ultimately leading the Miami Heat to victory, with a final score of 122 to 99.

That night, Teigen addressed the altercation on Twitter. When one user joked about the moment, the 33-year-old model responded, “It was an honor!”

Miami Herald Sports also mentioned Teigen in a post and asked if she’d like a copy of the epic snapshot, to which she wrote, “A renaissance painting,” along with a laughing emoji.

Hey, at least they (probably) got free drinks out of it.
