MIAMI (AP) — They may be late to the party, but the Miami Heat didn’t let a viral video craze slip by them.

With LeBron James in a king’s costume, Mario Chalmers dressed as Super Mario, and Chris “Birdman” Andersen mimicking — what else? — a bird, the Heat version of the “Harlem Shake” dance craze was released Thursday.

It was film in Miami’s locker room, with James saying it was a “King James and Dwyane Wade” production.

The dance is to the song of the same name, and countless videos have popped up where one person starts dancing, then the camera cuts to a large group of people dancing, many in costume.

The Heat have also gotten widespread attention lately for their pregame-warmup dunk contests, videos of which have also gone viral.

Oh, by the way, the reigning NBA champions also have the league’s longest current winning streak — 12 straight going into Friday’s game with Memphis.
