The Miami Heat are the two-time reigning NBA champions. They're also the title winners when it comes to videobombs. Usually, Chris Bosh has the honors. But Monday night, it was Dwyane Wade's turn.
Following a 107-92 victory over the Phoenix Suns, Wade decided to spotlight his cartwheeling skills. While LeBron James (who poured in a game-high 35 points) was being interviewed by Sun Sports' Jason Jackson, Wade (who chipped in 21 points and 12 assists on the evening) looked like an amateur gymnast in the background. The move caught James and Jackson off-guard. The veteran broadcaster asked rhetorically in shock, "Was that a cartwheel?!" and added, "We have gone to a whole 'nuther place!" James exclaimed, "Yo...we've gone to a whole 'nuther stratosphere on the night with that one." Wade's motivation and inspiration for the goofy display were relayed in a pair of tweets by beat reporter Ethan J. Skolnick:
Wade has been saving the cartwheels for a LeBron video bomb: "It's on now. We took it to another level."

Wade said cartwheels came from youngest son: "It's all he does around the house. So I had to participate." — Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick) November 26, 2013
Oh what a night
Tampa Bay Lightning stalwart Martin St. Louis was honored by the franchise for playing his 1,000th game before the Bolts' game against the New York Rangers. But that was only the start of the fun. St. Louis had a goal celebration fail for the ages as Tampa Bay beat New York 5-0.
Anything you can do...
Finally, Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers got the best of Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football.
