The Miami Heat needed a break and they are taking advantage while they're in Miami with an early celebration of Dwyane Wade's 32nd birthday.
Friends, family and his bosses Pat Riley and team owner Micky Arison were on hand for the yacht party, which could only be held in the city of Miami at this time of the year.
While his birthday is on January 17, the Heat have a busy schedule once their road trip resumes in Washington D.C., where they visit the White House on Tuesday to celebrate their 2013 NBA Championship a day before facing the Wizards. Wade's birthday coincides with the Heat's road clash against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Just days after celebrating the birthday of teammate Michael Beasley in New York City, the Heat team gathered on a fully customized Li-Ning "Way of Wade" yacht for the event.
As for the party itself we'll let the pictures tell the story.
