The Miami Heat faced off against the Boston Celtics last night. The Heat are in mid-season form and so far have looked the best in this early NBA season. Of course some of my favorite WAGS (wives and girlfriends) were in attendance to cheer their men on. Gabrielle Union, Adrienne Bosh and Savannah Brinson. Be sure to check out the upclose view on Savannah’s purse. Mmmmm absolutely delicious.
