Beer company sends Heat player special delivery
MIAMI (WSVN) -- He's one of the Miami Heat's hottest players off the bench, but when Shane Battier wants to cool down he turns to his friend Budweiser.
The Miami Heat forward, Shane Battier is known for knocking down shot after shot while on the hardwood. But now, Budweiser is giving Battier a chance to knock down a cold one after a cold one.
The former Duke standout began a habit of enjoying a Bud Light after every game of the Heat's epic 27 game-winning streak earlier this season.
A Budweiser representative said, "He was loyal to us, so we're loyal to him as well."
With the playoffs underway, employees at the beer company decided to show their support with a special delivery.
The Budweiser crews loaded up a truck containing 1,100 cases of beer.
"I'll take it all. Aww, man! This is awesome!" said Battier.
So far, no word from the Heat star on what he plans to do with all the brew.
