Waiting to Exhale

For a second there, Dwyane Wade was in free-agency limbo, having gone past flirting with the Chicago Bulls to taking them home and leaving Pat Riley sitting at the bar alone, staring at his phone, and pretending to text someone. But the gravitational pull of Biscayne Bay proved too strong (sorry, North Shore), and Wade reupped with the Heat, bringing along highly sought-after power forward Chris Bosh, who will play Wade’s Robin, because Superman never had a sidekick. And in the crowning achievement, “King” LeBron James’ addition kicks the combo into the basketball stratosphere.

And so the Summer Groove All-Star Basketball Game, cohosted by Wade and legendary Heat star Alonzo Mourning, should be the celebratory event of the summer, although Wade might be met with a collective exhale instead of a cheer. The game, taking place Sunday at American Airlines Arena, will feature top current and former NBA players in an old-school-versus-new-school showdown. Tip-off is at 1 p.m., and tickets cost $8 to $63. Call 305-476-0095 or visit the summergroove.com.
