LeBron James and the Miami Heat, dating back to 2010’s televised showcase featuring James’ move from Cleveland to Miami, haven’t always had their collective fingers on pulse of what’s tolerable and what’s annoying when it comes to internet memes. If Twitter is to be believed, and it usually is, “The Harlem Shake” ran afoul of online tastemakers a couple of weeks ago, as everyone seemed to quickly tire of the dance craze.
This is why LeBron James and the Heat decided to put together their own version, a few weeks after it probably would have hit the hardest. Watch:

… and Chris Bosh as a, um, “funky Big Lebowski?”
And also Dwyane Wade, who thinks shirts are for suckers if you’ve got a blazer!
The Heat have won 12 straight heading into Friday’s battle with the similarly sizzling Memphis Grizzlies, who decided to pass on making their own video.
