The Miami Heat’s ‘Harlem Shake’ video; give them the NBA Championship now
The ‘Harlem Shake’ web phenomenon has been joined royalty. Yes,
LeBron King James and his Miami Heat teammates have joined the rest of the internet in making one of these ridiculous videos, and this may be the best one yet.
No discredit to Matt and Kim, but they’ve just been topped by the NBA Champions.
The video starts with none other than Chris ‘The Birdman’ Andersen flying around until breakdown, and then madness ensues. LeBron dressed a king, Dwyane Wade dressed as “Runaway” Kanye West (complete with the Kanye bear head), Chris Bosh being, well, Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers as Super Mario, someone in a Rey Mysterio mask, another player wearing a WWE Championship belt and so much more that I cannot comprehend.
The only way an NBA team tops this is if the San Antonio Spurs get Tim Duncan, and more importantly, head coach Gregg Popovich to commit to filming one of the 30-second memes.
Mad props to LeBron and the Heat. The LeBron James Redemption Tour just hit a new high. This dude owns the NBA. Lay off about the dunk contest BS, idiots.
Chris Bosh and the strangest champagne bath in NBA Finals history
Chris Bosh is a weirdo.
Bosh has also had one of the greatest runs in NBA playoff history. Obviously, his return to the Miami Heat lineup saved their season, and also helped them win an NBA title, something they couldn’t have done without him. Beyond his great play, he’s made his impact felt in many other ways as well in these playoffs.
First, there was his video-bombing.
Then, we had ‘Chris Bosh Face.’
Now, we have the most ridiculous champagne celebration in the history of not only the NBA Finals, but all of sports.
This video is almost inappropriate.
Bosh obviously endured much of the ‘hate’ when he joined forces with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, but let’s face it, he’s too big of a goofball not to like.
Oh, and he also made sure to take the NBA players wearing glasses trend to a new level.
You go, Bosh! Can’t wait to see what this guy does at the parade.

I used to write a lot. Mostly, about basketball. I need to write more for this site, a lot more. I plan on doing that, so I’m starting with basketball. Here you go, let’s talk NBA Finals. It’s a few hours late. Sorry.
It’s the 2012 NBA Finals, and to say the least, I’m really excited. More than I’ve been in a long while.
I think it’s safe to say that this NBA Finals series between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder is the league’s most star-powered and looked forward to series since the Chicago Bulls played the Los Angeles Lakers back in 1991.
I am pretty confident with that statement.
It’s not to take away from some of the great matchups we’ve seen over the last 20 years, like the Houston Rockets defeating the New York Knicks in seven games back in ’94, or the Bulls and Jazz going at it for six games in back-to-back years in ’97 and ’98, or even my beloved Detroit Pistons shocking the world and beating the Lakers in five games back in 2004. There’s been a lot of awesome basketball with some great performances and tons of legendary names involved, but I don’t think any of those compare to what we are potentially going to see happen during this NBA Finals.
I’m not even saying that this series is going to go seven, with nail-biting games, buzzer-beaters or scintillating overtime finishes. It’s almost impossible to call the specifics, but on paper, there is a lot be excited about.
It’s clear that the biggest headline is LeBron James vs. Kevin Durant. MVP vs. scoring champ. Something we rarely get to see in the Finals. To most of America, it’s the ‘bad guy vs. the good guy,’ and we all know who is who in that assessment.
That whole ‘good guys vs. bad guys’ theme could be, and is pretty much, applied to this entire series. As a whole, and without really having to conduct any Family Feud style surveying, we know who America is pulling for and we definitely know who they are rooting against.
Miami is the enemy here.
Oklahoma City, on the other hand, are making their run at becomming America’s sweetheart.
NBA’s ‘BIG’ promo for the 2012 NBA Finals
The biggest NBA Finals in probably 21 years starts tomorrow night.
The three-time and current league MVP, LeBron James, against the three-time and current league scoring champion, Kevin Durant.
Oh, the Heat also have Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
Let’s not forget the Thunder have Russell Westbrook and James Harden, in addition to Durant. Even with all that, they also have Serge Ibaka who is an NBA All-Star in the making.
This is the most star-powered NBA Finals since 1991, Lakers vs. Bulls.
A great series is ahead of us and I think the outcome will change the landscape of the league for at least the next five years, if not longer. This series is THAT ‘BIG,’ so the league’s slogan is right on point.
I will have my thoughts and prediction on the series by tomorrow.
(Oh, props to the NBA for showing my Bad Boys, the Detroit Pistons)
Video brilliance: The Miami Heat star in a remake of the 80’s sitcom “Growing Pains”
The Miami Heat have lost five games in a row and their coach publicly admitted that guys were taking the losses so bad, that there was crying in the locker room. The team that many have predicted to win the NBA Championship and even compete with the Chicago Bulls’ record of 72 wins in a season is definitely going through some growing pains, so with that said, here’s an Alan Thicke classic.
I wonder which member of the Heat would play the role of Ben’s friend Boner?
Mike Miller anyone?
(Props, The Basketball Jones)
Last night the NBA announced the starting lineups for the 2011 NBA All-Star Game and Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant was among the starters out West, as voted by the fans. This will be Durant’s second All-Star appearance, and his first as a starter.
Joining Durant out West will be Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Yao Ming. Obviously, Yao won’t be joining anyone, since he’s out for the season, so hopefully a valid replacement will be selected (I’d assume Tim Duncan or Dirk Nowitzki get the start).
In the East, it’s far more simple: LeBron James, Amare Stoudemire, Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose fill out the starting five, and all rightfully so.
The big question is, who will be selected as the seven reserves for each team? I’ll be reviewing that shortly with you all.
For the final voting numbers, visit NBA.com.
Hey LeBron. Hey Miami. Take that.
Rudy Gay hits the game-winner right in LeBron James’ face, then gets at the Heat bench as the Memphis Grizzlies knock off the Miami Heat, who are now 8-5 this season. The Grizzlies improved to 5-9 with the victory.
Note: The Heat were playing without an injured Dwyane Wade.
