Check out the video below as Lebron James leads his team into dance super-stardom history — Miami Heat Style!
James and Dwyane Wade released their video on Thursday and by midnight it had been viewed more than six million times on YouTube.
The video took the two about 30 minutes to edit according to James. Once they saw the final version, Wade said he “knew this was going to be pretty funny.” For instance, Wade is dressed like a teddy bear from Saturday Night Fever.
“It’s a long season, man,” Wade said. “For us, it was just trying to enjoy the process. It’s going to be go time soon, and then we’re not going to be able to do anything, fun was the ultimate goal.”
“With everything that goes on with our team from the outside, we have to figure out a way to keep ourselves sane and have fun,” James said. “It’s no disrespect to anyone we go against or the game itself. We approach the game like the best competitors, but in the meantime you have to appreciate more than just basketball.”
A list of the players and their costumes in the video: James, the spastic king; Wade, Saturday Night Fever bear; Bosh, ’80s cowboy break-dancer; Battier, “horse-stronaut”; Udonis Haslem, heavyweight champion fireman; Ray Allen, phantom of the opera; Andersen, Sons of Anarchy foot soldier; James Jones, disturbed clown; Norris Cole, “N.C. Hammer”; Chalmers, Super Mario; Rashard Lewis, jabawaki mime; Miller, sombrero wearing Ray Mysterio Junior; Jarvis Varnado, luchador; Joel Anthony, Antigua flag mask with Santa Claus cap.
