Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
There aren’t that many bachelor head coaches around the NBA. Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra showed up to a fund rasing event over the weekend with former Miami Heat dancer Nikki Sapp. Sapp joined the dance team in 2006 at 18 years old.
The notoriously private boyish 42-year-old stunned observers by stepping onto the red carpet of Heat broadcasters Eric Reid and Tony Fiorentino‘s yearly fundraiser with a beautiful, and much younger, brunette.
More than a few Miami Heat dancers have parlayed their time with the team into pop culture celebdom. “Basketball Wives,” Royce Reed, to “The Bachelor’s” Trista Rehn plus a Pussycat Doll and WWE Diva, Layla El all to the court on behalf of the Heat. Royce and Nikki were on the dance team at the same time too.
If I had to pick a favorite dance team, they would be it.

Is there another dynamic duo that is playing as lights out as LeBron James and Dwayne Wade right now? Maybe Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook? Kobe Bryant and >insert name
No. The two stars from the Miami Heat are playing some incredible basketball this season. As evidence I offer this clip from the end of the first half of Sunday's game with the Indiana Pacers:
Whiskey Tango tried this before in 2011 and it didn’t work out too well. This time they have a little bit smarter promotion.
The Heat are on an 18 game winning streak and there aren’t a lot of games in the regular season, so this is a more reasonable way to give out free drinks and get some free press.
Here are the details.
The next time the Miami Heat loses a game, we will pay...

Ok, world. I think we’ve all had enough of Harlem Shake. Right? I know I have. Enough ‘Div. III Bumblef#ck Tech does Harlem Shake.’ Enough ‘Dementia riddled geriatrics do Harlem Shake.’ Just enough!
And then what happens? Professional sports teams getting involved in this nonsense. Come on, folks. So, the Miami Heat threw their hat in this annoying ring last week. Thankfully...
It’s looking like the Heat can’t be beat. The LeBron James led Miami Heat beat the Indiana Pacers 105-91 to gain their 18th win in a row last night. LeBron James scored only 13 points in the game which is an off night for him.
