ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Over the last few months we have faithfully chronicled the Miami Heat as they’ve videobombed their way through the season. They do it because they a celebrating a win, sure, but they also do it because it throws a fun wrinkle into an otherwise rote postgame interview.
Bleacher Report’s Ethan Skolnick caught up with most of the principles involved for a fun history of the Heat’s videobombing. As Heat sideline reporter Jason Jackson tells Skolnick, “I don’t want any injuries connected to the videobomb. But I think they should continue to show enjoyment. They’re not upstaging their opponent. They’re not being derogatory, they’re just having fun, because they truly, really enjoy each other. This is unique. And the core of it is those three guys making sure everyone can have fun. Now, the fun can be rough sometimes, but it’s neat. The limit is I don’t think they’ll be bringing in Cirque du Soleil equipment or training staff, but their creativity has no bounds, as we know.”
Which videobomb has been the best? There are many themes to choose from, including wheelbarrows, mops and cartwheels. Yet Jackson goes with the recent one that followed the Heat’s last-second win on the road in Portland, when Chris Bosh was given the James Brown treatement by LeBron and Wade…
