You know, it's that really awful show on VH1 that follows around a cliquey group of women who are married, divorced, dating or whathaveyou former and current NBA players. Don't think it's awful? I refer you to an expert on the matter -- an ESPN NBA analyst, nonetheless.
Aug 28 RT @jalenrose Basketball Wives has set back minorities and the athletic climate 40 years! #mockery
Well guess who may be the newest member of the clique? The wife of the Atlanta Hawks head coach, Sharon Curry-Drew, who otherwise may be known to most readers of this blog as the mother of Larry Drew II.

Here are some tweets from August 29 between Larry Drew II and Shaunie O'Neal (ex-wife of Shaq), which them turned into a quick conversation between Sharon and Shaunie.
