I guess money can buy everything. What do you get when you combine a $200,000 car, Rick Ross, Common, T.I., Fat Joe, Kelly Rowland, LeBron James, the rest of the Miami Heat, and South Beach? Dwyane Wade’s 30th birthday party, of course. If you thought the pictures we’ve shown you in the past of LeBron’s birthday cake were over the top, wait until you see how D-Wade threw down for his 30th birthday this week. As you can see from the photos above, the musical performances were highlighted by Rowland singing “Happy Birthday” to Dwyane and LeBron standing behind Ross looking like a clown with a microphone in his hand.

If you need to refer to something as Wade’s “main birthday present,” I suppose the $230,000 McLaren he received would be it. According to TMZ.com, the owner of a local luxury car dealership gave the car to Wade as a gift. Naturally, the dealership owner wanted the presentation of the vehicle to be breathtaking. So he decided to have it airlifted in the hotel pool area where the party was being held. Since that concept may be one that is tough to envision, here is a photo to help illustrate the scene:

Wade accepted the gift in front of teammates Chris Bosh and LeBron along with Usher and more. That’s not all. Wade’s family also surprised him by flying in his 91-year-old grandmother Willie Mae Morris, who came all the way from Chicago and had never been on a plane. The surprise reportedly brought D-Wade to tears.

When you think about the fact that LeBron is only 27 years old, you have to wonder what’s going to happen in three years when he turns 30 and is still living in South Beach? I’d be willing to guess the planning started years ago.
