The Miami Heat Perform Karaoke

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last night down in Miami, Heat forward Shane Battier hosted his annual Battioke event, where the Miami Heat players take turns performing karaoke to raise money for charity. And thanks to the Heat’s Instagram account, we have a treasure trove of videos from the vent, featuring plenty of off-key singing and performances. Little pitchy, dawg? Little pitchy, dawg.

Let’s start with Battier, Greg Oden and actor Ken Jeong performing the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way”…

LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem combined on Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” Strong falsetto, Bron…

Chris Bosh killing, literally, Tom Jones‘ “It’s Not Unusual,” complete with The Carlton as choreography…

Bosh then went into a costume change and re-emerged as Shock G to perform Digital Underground’s classic, “The Humpty Dance”…

The Big Three (Bron, Wade, Bosh) with a faithful rendition of Jodeci’s “Come And Talk To Me”…

Pat Riley and a surprisingly pitchy Jimmy Buffet combined on Marvin Gaye‘s “Heard It Through The Grapevine”…

Wade’s significant other Gabrielle Union selected the Garth Brooks classic “Friends In Low Places”…

Your winner for the evening? James Jones! Here’s his acceptance speech…

And to close it out, here’s a team performance of Lil Jon‘s “Get Low”…

#Battioke2014 is a wrap! Here's a snippet of tonight's @MiamiHEAT team finale!

  7. amazeonsale says:

    wow they seem like they are having fun.

  8. Javier says:

    I can’t wait to see all the haters say that this is cheesy and stupid. This is what we call ‘bonding’ and making chemistry. This is why the Heat were the 2013 Champs and the 2013 Lakers weren’t. Pure chemistry.

  9. Pat Anseaume says:
