The Miami Heat attempt karaoke

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERShane Battier may have retired and moved into a career in broadcasting for ESPN, but he is still involved in Miami, where his charitable foundation, the Take Charge Foundation, is based. And once a year, Battier holds a charitable fund raiser in the form of an event called Battioke, where the Heat throw their pride to the wind and perform embarrassing karaoke in front of a crowd.

Last night was the most recent version of Battioke, and it provided some real gems. Let’s start with Heat president Pat Riley, who performed an ear-splitting rendition of the classic “Twist and Shout”…

Also from the Heat front office, coach Erik Spoelstra and his girlfriend Nikki Sapp opted for Michael Jackson‘s hit “Billie Jean”…

New Heat members Michael Beasley and Henry Walker teamed up for Vanessa Carlton‘s “A Thousand Miles”…

Battier himself went with the karaoke classic, “I’m Too Sexy”…
