Miami Heat hold secret santa

Published Add your comment

The Miami Heat's recent successes can be put down to a number of variables.

World-class players...lots of money...incredible team unity. But whilst the first two may be found at a host of other NBA franchises, it's the third that sets LeBron James and co. apart.

And what better way to showcase togetherness than to hold a team secret santa?

Prior to Monday's win over the Utah Jazz, James shed some light on the event: "I was one of the culprits.

"I never take full credit for anything, but I was definitely one of the ones. It was something we did when I was in Cleveland as well. I thought it was a pretty good thing to do. We had success for the first time."

According to Bleacher Report, the 15 Heat stars drew names out of a hat- with the only rules being that they couldn't spend under a certain amount on the present.

Amongst the presents received was a money-themed painting made a Miami artist for Roger 'Money Mase' Mason Jr, bought for him by Michael Beasley who in turn got a Louis Vuitton bag.

Other highlights included Bang & Olufsen speakers given to Greg Oden and a telescope which Shane Battier purchased for Chris Bosh.
