Miami Heat players in tights?
MIAMI (WSVN) -- No, don't expect to see the Heat players in tights. However, they are teaming up with a couple of ballerinas.
Miami Heat superstars Dwayne Wade and Lebron James are set to star in a new promotional campaign for the Miami City Ballet.
The campaign will center around the 25th anniversary of the Miami Heat and Miami City Ballet. It will also draw parallels between basketball and ballet.
Lebron James said, "What those ladies do, as far as ballet, is unique." He adds, "Their poses are poses I know I'll never able to get into."
The campaign, which will also highlight the art scene alongside Biscayne Boulevard, is reminiscent of a campaign when both the Heat and Miami City Ballet first opened their doors.
The campaign hopes to send the message that Miami is more than a beach town.
