5-Year Anniversary: Toast Of The Banana Boat Boys

Five years ago, at the peak of Hall of Fame careers, four of the best NBA players, and friends, go on vacation together.

A photo captured one of the all-time memorable toasts that we have seen. Back then, they were calling it “the toast of the year.”

Nothing, however, is more legendary and memorable than three of those friends, and Wade’s wife Gabrielle Union, jumping on an inflatable banana.

You get a TMZ moment. A moment for everybody’s culture. A glimpse into the NBA’s player power structure back then and a moment in time captured in the life of hoops legends. As well as one of the funniest nicknames of all-time for a group of friends — The Banana Boat Boys.
