The Miami community would like to thank Miami Heat stars LeBron James, Dewayne Wade, Chris Bosh and FIU coach Isiah Thomas for bringing a thrilling “skyami” to Miami. The October 8, 2011 entertainment at the hoop kept the fans on their feet, everyone was skywalking. But on the sidelines the real comedy show was Udonis Haslem coaching LeBron’s Team and Kevin Hart coaching Wade’s team. (We interrupt this blog for an urgent message, Kevin Hart’s movie Laugh at my Pain is two hours of gut wrenching laughter so anyone on Norman Vincent Peale’s laughter medicine to heal cancer - this Rx is for you). Back to the South Florida All-Star Classic. The pre-game warm up was hilarious with each of the star lineup showing their skill while Udonis stood on the sidelines aching to be on the court. At the other end, Kevin Hart like a Globe Trotter broke all the rules. He didn’t even get a technical call for throwing a chair on the court.
It was like having double vision watching number 3 with Dewayne Wade # 3 playing alongside Chris Paul # 3. That’s not fair double teaming LeBron. But LeBron’s team dukes it out to the very end with Kevin Durant giving a championship performance.
When the score reached 100-101 the crowd went crazy. It was Floyd Mayweather’s appearance that got them stirred up. “He should fight.” Some fans were wall street mad but the fight was going on right there on the court. It was Wade’s team in the lead, then LeBron’s team gained an edge, and it went on back and forth. Then it came down to the final buzzer and both teams were tied. That took us into five more minutes of great entertainment and ball playing. In the end Wade’s team was a hair ahead beating LeBron’s Team by 1-point. 141-140.
I would have to say the 2011 South Florida All-Star Classic was one of the best games I have ever seen. Forget the season games, I can’t wait till the 2012 South Florida All-Star Classic. By that time the world will be flat, the owners’ pocket books will be flat empty just like mine, the fans will be starved chewing away at each other, and the players will be too fat to lift off. Not to mention that the stadiums will be renamed “Bankruptcy Center.”
