See? Way taller.

Did you know the Miami City Ballet and the Miami Heat are the same age? Me neither, but they’re both 25 which means they can legally rent a car the next time they take a spring break trip, so that’s cool for them.

Also, because they share a birth year and are teams of athletes, they took pictures together and said some quotes that are funny because it is LeBron James and Dwyane Wade saying them. Here are those quotes:

“It’s always good for our fans to see something different out of us; to see us interact in a different way,” said Wade. “We feel at times we’re like graceful dancers in the air so it’s good to put the two worlds together. Miami’s about versatility—the whole culture. It’s good that we can bring that into sports.”


“It’s very artsy,” said James of the endeavor. “It’s great to have a couple of pictures with them in their poses—poses I’d never be able to get into!”

Two takeaways from this: 1) Dwyane Wade sometimes feels that he is a graceful dancer in the air; 2) LeBron James isn’t good at getting in to ballet poses. So there you go. As LeBron says, very artsy.
