Dwyane Wade accepted the YouTube prom invitation of a local high school senior during the Miami Heat’s break between playoff series, proving once and for all that the Heat are in full-on cruise control through the 2013 NBA playoffs.
‘Willingness to embarrass herself’
According to WSVN TV in Miami, Nicole Muxo cooked up a video request to the Heat shooting guard after she struck out in her attempt to get Wade to accompany her to a homecoming dance earlier in the year. Anyway, her persistence and willingness to embarrass herself paid off in a big way, as D-Wade actually showed up to surprise her at the big dance. He relayed the news via his Instagram account.
Wade earned major “good guy” points for the effort, but he somehow hasn’t caught any flak yet for taking time out of his postseason schedule to attend high school dances.
It’d be one thing if Miami was engaged in a series at the moment, but since the team is sitting around and waiting, Wade’s extracurricular activities are really no big deal. Besides, perhaps one of the new dances the kids are doing these days will function as physical therapy for Wade’s bad knee. What’s really impressive about this whole thing is that a simple YouTube request got the job done.
What do you think of Dwayne Wade’s stint as a high school prom date? Would you invite him to your prom, too?
