ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Nicole Muxo, a senior at Miami’s Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School and a rabid fan of the Miami Heat, decided to swing for the fences when it came time for prom: About a month ago, she extended a video invite to Miami Heat G Dwyane Wade.
Credit to Muxo for having the moxie to go public with her invite. (Also, probably a shrewd move to use Wade’s fellow Chicago-native Kanye West as the video’s soundtrack.)
The video racked up tens of thousands of views, and eventually made its way to Wade. As it turned out, Wade and the Heat were busy the last few weeks, dispatching the Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls on their way to the Eastern Conference Finals. But after defeating the Bulls in five games, the Heat suddenly had the weekend off. And as Wade explained to WSVN in Miami, Muxo left nothing to chance:
“She actually DM’d me on Twitter and said, ‘This is the address, this is where I’m gonna be just in case,’ and when I got that I said, I won’t be doing nothing tomorrow night and I can go and make this a memorable moment for her.”
Seems like Wade was on the mark with his wish:
Wade actually brought along a video crew to document the evening…
Oh, according to the Miami Herald, Muxo’s date, Laurent Chaumin, took it all in stride: “At least we both know how to dress.”
