Heat Do The Harlem Shake (VIDEO)


HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — Few teams work and play as hard as the NBA’s reigning champs.

And with the Harlem Shake becoming the latest viral video craze, the Miami Heat did what champions do and bested the rest of the field. Starting with the Chris “The Birdman” Andersen, LeBron “The shirtless King” James and Super Mario Chalmers all playing prominent roles in this hilarious video, along with Dwyane Wade in perhaps the best get up of all, a Kanye West College Dropout Bear costume.

Other teams have gotten in on this act, including the Magic, Raptors (courtesy of Amir Johnson‘s maneuverings), Suns and Hawks. But the bar has been raised, folks.

If you’re thinking about putting together your own crew for a Harlem Shake video, you better watch the Heat’s first and then ask yourself if it’s worth trying to top the champs?

  4. Jimmy Buckets says:

    Because I cant find a good place to post this:
    Spurs = no one cares…. dangerous team that will always fall short no heart
    Parker = no business as an MVP candidate for executing his job within an offense designed for him to succeed. Thats called great coaching Parker is OVERRATED

  24. chilen40 says:

    Bosh is the star of that video.

    Home boy took it way back on this one.

  25. aaaaaa says:

    I hate both the Heat and the Harlem Shake, but I like how they’re dressed up, especially LeBron as a king (just to say again I hate Lebron) and Mario Chalmers as Mario

  26. dexterity says:

    this will make the team even more closer, im sure while filming this stuff they had a ton of laughters, and laughter is one way of getting closer

  27. I LUV Chalmers in the Mario Costume

  28. Adam says:

    What a waste of time. Find some good things to write about Hamg Time! Oh I forgot, Sekou is a fan of Lebron…

  29. Count It says:

    Chemistry is entirely the most over-used, worn-out, and nonsense cliche used in pro sports.
    The Bulls of the 90’s had how much of that and got 6 titles? 0. Thank you. My point.
    You think Dennis, Scottie, and Michael were hanging out eating breakfast and stuff to win titles???
    They came to work hard everyday because they did not want to lose.

  30. Plamenko Vasic says:

    This is so stupid. Just proves how ridiculously homo Miami is. LeBron and Wade should just get a civil union already.

  31. Raymond Rizzo says:

    vote for carmelo anthont for MVP

  32. Raymond Rizzo says:

    carmelo anthony is going to win the finals and a mvp

  33. Raymond Rizzo says:

    the Heat stink and will lose to the knicks carmelo is better than LeBron tHATS WHY CARMELO IS Going to be the MVP

  34. Raymond Rizzo says:

    the heat stink and will lose to the knicks carmelo is the MVP

  35. jawad says:

    im not a heat fan. but i love this video. its funny and it shows how much the heat players have fun playing together. i wish the lakers were like that.

  36. PS24 says:

    Haha the face on Lebron is priceless, funny stuff!

  37. balladwake20 says:

    LOL i couldnt stop laughing at mario chalmers in his mario outfit..HAHAHA

  38. NBAlove says:

    There doesnt have to be a reason behind everything. How can you live like that? Conspiracies everywhere. Get a life!!!

  39. NBAlove says:

    come on people. its just a funny video. Nothing more. Stop mixing everything up. Champinships , teamss , hate , chemistry.
    they are justing fooling around and having fun.

  40. JDoe says:

    If basketball doesn’t work out, LeBron can always find employment as a male stripper.

  41. scooby says:

    lol! Le bron is fugly!.

  42. andre wall says:

    lol i love the way all these people jump on lebum james nuts the real question is that where is all the cavs fanz at lol so what lebum nuts left so all his wagoners decided to store his nuts in yall mouths damn shame. but how do you expect that man to ball with his nuts in all your mouths i guess when the band wagon roll around all you fake heat fanz decide to jump on. oh yea lebum called he said he needs his not bak and more room on the wagon for his family so jump off nut rider p.s. BOSTONCELTICS ALLDAY

  43. Lakersalltheway! says:

    I really hope they lose. I dont want them to win at all. But the direction in which they are headed right now is towards a championship! you would have to be literally stupid not to admit that.

  44. celtics says:

    lol its a damn shame all this band wagon heat fans just jump on board when the wagon come around all you lebum nut riders need to stop that man cant play if his nuts is all the band wagoners mouth because i promise before all the lebum nuts riders jumped on the heat wagon all of them where cavs fanz damn shame what happen to all the cavs fans. lebum nuts went on the wagon so yall decide to ride along wih him damn shame oh yea BOSTON CELTICS ALLDAY WAGONERS

  45. larone says:

    I love the way they come together, it shows in the way they play on the floor, I think the Lakers could learn something from this. It takes teamwork to win a championship. Miami Heat has the Championship this year I have no doubt.

  46. Random fan full of opinions says:

    I’m not sure what doing a Harlem Shake has to do with winning a championship but apparently to Heat fans it means everything.

  47. aaron says:

    only way they could of made it better was if riley and spolestra joined in XD

  48. noyb says:

    Work hard, play hard!

  67. The conquerer says:


  68. edsel says:

    hahahahahha,.,.,love it…………..

  69. Sami says:

    Not Miami Heat fan, but this is awesome. Have fun with your teammates and get serious in the game. That’s Miami Heat. Every NBA team should be like this. Miami have 90% chance of retaining the NBA Championship, they gone sweep any team, but if my team (which I still believe they can make it) LA Lakers get to the Final it’s going to be the best NBA Final Ever. The Black Mamba vs King James.

  70. lakers91_ says:

    LOLOL loving how their having FUN! They are playing extremely good especially Lebron wont be surprise if they repeat

    still Lakers 4 Life though. All Love.

  71. Duron says:

    MIAMI HEAT = JOKE! bunch of losers. def not winning a championship this year. its all about the clippers this year. that team is solid!

    • Riem says:

      wtf, which is it bulls or clippers?

    • jared says:

      ok duron when have the clippers won it and if blake, and RG3 wernt there then wat would your clippers be doing then…. let me …guess clipping the rest of there hair’s… just because lebron and wade and bosh cam together dont mean you have to hate great players. maybe if you practice enough then you might be able to turn things around for your clippers…lol i dought that but good luck…lol

    • sick says:

      Duron the MORON… Lol

  72. Celtics44444 says:

    This is great. not a fan in particular of the heat but this really shows how far they’ve come as a team together.
    Props to the heat, they look great this way L0L

  73. El Gran Chore says:

    I think all of you missed the point of this video, this is in retaliation of Lil Waynes DISS… The song played is a remix by Pitbull Mr. 305 did for lil wayne in response of him F-in the miami heat… So they are dancing in fun of the song and lil wayne…

  74. Madness says:

    Lol at Shane Battier

  75. Duron says:

    they look like idiots! i truely hate the miami heat and this just made me hate them even more! lebron looks like a moron! and birdman you just made an even bigger idiot of yourself! i cant even stand to watch this video i didnt even finish it! miami heat people alot of people dont like you and this just made it worse! GO BULLS!

  76. Tht was awsome, My homeroom teacher made a video on tht 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  77. Jay says:

  78. Crazygirl992 says:

    what in the… I don’t even…. this… *walks away silently*

    lol it is FUNNY though

  79. Ssssssssss says:

    The amount of love this writer has for the heat is TOO DAMN HIGH! Try being AT LEAST less Heat-oriented Sekou, there are 29 other teams in the NBA.

    • SoFlaFan says:

      He gives credit where it’s due, Heat hit it out of the park with this video, hands down!!!! Heat continue to amaze!!!!

  80. Ronald says:

    very funny, haslem`s step and birdman on the back side with his hands raised are the funiest………. can someone tell me who the hell is the guy dressed like a horse?

  81. jake s says:

    South Beach Shuffle?

  82. filip says:

    The Bulls should be one too with Rose in the middle just standing there.

    • @DerrickRose says:

      Nah,I’m contented with my Pee-Ka-Booo. But we’ll give it a shot when we win our 4th game in the Finals on June,maybe not this year,but it would be sweet if we do Harlem shake with Larry O’brien trophy on our hands.

  83. iivviiccaa79 says:

    talking about team chemistry:)
    eat this Lakers:)!

  84. tarique says:

  92. DWiley says:

    Very funny video; perfect example of team chemistry. It ‘s carried over to the court. Go HEAT!!! The HEAT will REPEAT!! You can take that to the bank.

  93. Heat #1 says:

    This is probably the BEST Heat video so far. I LOVE the Super Mario Chalmers!!! Go HEAT!!!!!

  94. moron says:

  95. markyeoj says:

    Not sure if that dude with a boombox is Bosh or Snoop Dog..

  96. Leo says:

    I personally dislike the Miami Heat, in a healthy rivalry kind of way, (Lakers!!)… but this video is funny. It’s speaks volumes of their team’s chemistry. These guys are having fun! That’s what it should be about! Have fun! Lakers, learn from this training video. Have fun, lighten up, accept one another, and that will manifest itself on the court!

  97. asap_joeyy says:


  98. LKR fan says:

    I just hope the Lakers don’t try it, they might break a few hips.

    • Victor Manoel says:

      Huahuahuahuahuauhahuahauahuahua, YES, THATS TRUE! But I really would like to see what dance Steve Nash would do to a video like this 🙂

      • uoykcuf says:

        Nash for sure I love to see, he’s hilarious at his video as always. D12 and MWP will be funny too but can you imagine Kobe in the vid?

    • Joe says:
