Miami Heat player Chris Bosh speaks to the media before a team practice ahead of Game 2 of the NBA Finals basketball playoff against the San Antonio Spurs in Miami

Highlights of Miami Heat’s “Battioke” event. Chris Bosh is the best.


That is Chris Bosh singing Tom Jones’ “It’s not unusual” while breaking out the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Carlton Dance. That is why Chris Bosh is awesome (that and he’s a better basketball player than most of you seem to give him credit for, but that’s another post for another day).

It’s may favorite thing from “Battioke” — Shane Battier’s annual charity fundraiser where the Miami Heat get up and sing. And they all sing — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Greg Oden… just everyone.

Here are a few other highlights, such as Bosh doing “The Humpty Dance” (by Digital Underground, in case you forgot).

Greg Oden, Shane Battier and Ken Jeong performing the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way.”

LeBron breaks out the falsetto on “Blurred Lines” with Wade and Udonis Haslem (I’m still partial to the video with virtually naked supermodels, for some reason).

Pat Riley got Jimmy Buffett on stage to do Marvin Gaye’s “Heard it through the Grapevine.”

D-Wade’s wife Gabrielle Union went country with Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places.”

The event closed with ‘Lil Jon’s “Get Low.”

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
