Miami Heat does the 'Shake'
By Shandel Richardson, Sun Sentinel
MIAMI -- They realized their window was closing.
The "Harlem Shake" craze had been around for a month or so, almost on the way to becoming a thing of the past. And with the playoffs approaching, the Miami Heat felt this was the last chance to put their stamp on the Internet phenomenon.
Boy, did they ever.
All it took was a 30-minute session Thursday to put together the most popular rendition of the dance. Their video, posted on YouTube, drew more than 2 million page views within 24 hours.
"If you don't get it done now, you're not going to do it because the playoffs are coming," guard Dwyane Wade said. "I'm glad we were able to get it done while we were at home for a little while."
Coach Erik Spoelstra had no problem with the team having a little fun before such a big game. On Friday, they faced the Memphis Grizzlies, who entered on an eight-game winning streak. Spoelstra even joked after the morning practice that assistant coaches Bob McAdoo and Ron Rothstein were making a coaches' version of the "Harlem Shake."n
