Add the Miami Heat to the ''Harlem Shake'' craze.
With LeBron James in a king's costume, Mario Chalmers dressed as Super Mario, and Chris ''Birdman'' Andersen mimicking - what else? - a bird, the Heat version of the dance craze was released Thursday.
It was filmed in Miami's locker room, with James saying it was a ''King James and DwyaneWade'' production.
''In life u gotta figure out how to have fun and enjoy it. Hope y'all enjoy,'' Chalmers wrote on Twitter.
The dance is to the song of the same name, and countless videos have popped up where one person starts dancing, then the camera cuts to a large group of people dancing, many in costume.
The Heat have also gotten widespread attention lately for their pregame-warmup dunk contests, videos of which have also gone viral.
Oh, by the way, the reigning NBA champions also have the league's longest current winning streak - 12 straight going into Friday's game with Memphis.

LeBron James continues to troll, troll, troll his boat prior to NBA games in the form of some nasty dunks. We wrote about LeBron trolling regarding the dunk contest last week, and he continued to do the same prior to the Heat’s last game. Check out Bron’s basic alley-oop to himself between his legs dunk. No big deal, wouldn’t even register at the dunk contest.
LeBron James is on a monster of a tear, which continued Tuesday with King James scoring a season-high 40 points in a 141-129 double-overtime win over the Sacramento Kings. Forty is a ridiculous number but seems almost pedestrian for superhuman LeBron.
James made 14-of-23 field goals and 11-of-12 free throws in the shootout. He nearly put together another triple-double with 16...
Tweet Earlier this week we gave you video of LeBron James performing a sick dunk in warm-ups that would have registered pretty high scores in a dunk contest. Tuesday before the Heat played the Kings LeBron pulled another amazing dunk out of his bag of tricks, this time going between his legs mid-air with relative ease: [...]
While the sports world has been set abuzz by the Harlem Shake video that LeBron James and the Miami Heat recently released, apparently others are trying to compete. Courtesy of Sports Crackle Pop, we have video of TNT’s Inside The NBA crew trying their hand at the popular dance.
Watch as Shaq and Charles get down in a way only they can.
Say it isn’t so!?! Unless you have been living in a cave you may have seen video – or live, if you’re extremely lucky – of LeBron James insane pregame dunks. You know the self alley-oop, between-the-legs dunk that have fans wanting more. However, some have criticized him about his resistance with the Slam Dunk contest, [...]The post LeBron James May Quit Pregame Dunk Routines...
Everyone loves the Miami Heat’s version of the non Harlem Shake. But I still loathe them as a basketball team
Dwyane Wade said it's getting hard for LeBron James to top himself. But he's trying.
The Miami Heat once again entertained fans by throwing down dunks in warmups before Friday's 98-91 win over Memphis at AmericanAirlines Arena.
James threw the ball behind his back off the backboard. Then he caught it and had a tomahawk jam with his right hand.
"I don't think...
We honestly thought we were done posting Harlem Shake videos, but when one of basketball’s best teams, and best players, do one, we feel obligated to share it. LeBron James and his Miami teammates recorded their extended version of the viral dance craze, and the thing is perfect. James is dressed in a king’s crown [...]
Fans can sure be stupid sometimes.
Here you have one of the best basketball players to ever play the game, and he likes to put on a little show during warm-ups for the fans by performing some crazy dunks. What do we do? We complain and harass the man about not performing in the Dunk Contest.
This should be the point where I say I get it; that I'm with you fans, but...
For a while, it looked as though a pair of long streaks were in jeopardy.
That is, until LeBron James finally got going - at the perfect time.
Dwyane Wade scored 22 points and set up James for a critical 3-pointer in the final half-minute, and the Heat extended their winning streak to 13 games by beating the Memphis Grizzlies 98-91 on Friday night.

The official Twitter page of ESPN (@ESPN) tweeted out this image of Lebron James ‘vs the rest of the NBA’ just moments after the Miami Heat’s victory over the Memphis Grizzlies for their 13th straight victory.

It's been a long time since we saw a team have as much fun and be as successful as the Miami Heat. Currently the best team in the NBA, the Heat absolutely no worries as they finish out the regular season with the best record in the East. Earlier this week there were reports of LeBron James putting on dunking exhibitions before games just because he could. And now the Harlem...
MIAMI (AP) -- Dwyane Wade scored 22 points, LeBron James shook off his worst shooting night of the season to hit a key 3-pointer in the final half-minute, and the Miami Heat extended their winning streak to 13 games by beating the Memphis Grizzlies 98-91 on Friday night.

When it rains, it pours for Manti Te’o. Seriously, is there anyone in the world who is having a worse couple of months than this guy? He has gone from the Heisman runner up, to the butt of every sports related joke, and now sliding down draft boards all over the NFL.
Te’o is not know for being extremely impressive athletically, but he definitely...
Last week we got off to a good start with but the San Antonio Spurs topping the rankings, but this week could they be unseated? Miami has gone on a tear winning 12 straight games and with LeBron James going on a historical run statistically. Are they good enough to be no.1 this week? How about the Lakers making a run towards the 8th seed? Things are getting interesting.
1. San Antonio...
