Consecutive win number 18 was anything but a typical game for LeBron James (13 PTS, 7 AST, 6 REB) but the Heat went to Rio. That’s what they call Mario Chalmers, who scored 26 points on fantastic shooting (5-of-6 from deep, 7-for-9 overall and 7-for-7 on free throws) while adding seven rebounds.
As many of you probably know by now, the “Harlem Shake” has been the new dance – perhaps taking over people’s intrigue with “Gangnam Style” – that everyone appears to be in love with these days. It sure caught the attention of TNT analyst Steve Kerr.
Here is a video of LeBron James and the Miami Heat doing their best impression of the popular dance, of sorts:
Nice touch on the costumes, especially Mario Chalmers dressed up as Super Mario.
Over the All-Star break, news broke that longtime Los Angeles Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss had been hospitalized and was battling cancer.
Monday, Dr. Buss passed away.
Many NBA players (former and current), owners and personnel sent their regards via Twitter.
Tuesday marks the 84th birthday of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Dr. King is best known and widely respected for his efforts in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is most notably recognized for his famous “I Have a Dream” speech that he gave on August 23, 1963 during a Washington D.C. Civil Rights March.
American society may still have a long way to go before we will have accomplished the goal set forth in that speech … However, without his efforts, many African-American working professionals (celebrity and non) may not be in the positions that they currently hold.
For that, many NBA players took time to recognize Dr. King on his birthday.
