Wade played the final home game of his career on Tuesday, April 9 at American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida, and Teigen and Legend got an incredible memento of the grand occasion.

The cute couple were courtside for the game — which saw Wade and the Miami Heat face off and defeat the Philadelphia 76ers — and in one epic moment, captured forever on camera, Teigen and Legend were caught entirely off guard as Wade crashed into them during the game.

The 6-foot-4-inch NBA super star careened into the pair accidentally, exploding their drinks all over them and essentially crushing them into their seats.

The perfect moment was captioned in a snapshot by the Miami Herald, who tweeted the photo to Teigen asking if she would like a copy.

Everything about the photo — from Teigen’s face getting jabbed what that looks to be a straw to Legend’s shocked reaction while being pelted with ice, to Wade’s totally ambivalent expression, focusing instead on the game itself than the celebs he crashed into — all made it a true work of art.

Teigen herself recognized the brilliance, retweeting the photo, which she called “a renaissance painting.”

Teigen also said it was “an honour” to have her drink splashed all over her by the retiring athlete.

Legend also took to Twitter shortly after the human-on-human collision to share a video in which he smiled while showing off his cocktail-splattered face.

“I still got my drink,” Legend proudly declared in the clip, holding up what little remained of whatever he was imbibing as Teigen tried to wipe some of the drink off his forehead.

Teigen and Legend were seated next to Wade’s wife, Gabrielle Union, during the historic game, and the new “America’s Got Talent” judge was adorably supportive as he played.

Throughout the night, Union loudly cheered him on and even gave him a playful pat after scoring a three-pointer.
