Miami Heat Players Fell Asleep After Their Thanksgiving Dinner

With the Miami Heat having to play a game in Cleveland on Wednesday (really, NBA? Send the two-time champion on the road during Thanksgiving to Cleveland?), LeBron James hosted the team for Thanksgiving dinner Thursday at his Akron mansion.

And, as it is with this team, once dinner was over, the crazy good times began.

As the tryptophan started taking effect, Udonis Haslem grabbed his phone and began taking shots of players as they all fell prey to the turkey.

Needless to say, hilarity ensued.

One by one, Haslem caught them. And then proceeded to post it on his Instagram for all the world to see.

First off, there was Dwyane Wade. Adorable!

Then, he caught Michael Beasley snoozing.

There was also Heat assistant coach Bob McAdoo looking like everyone's father last night.

Then... Mario Chalmers.

Jesus slept.

And our personal favorite, Chris Bosh, who manages to be both awesome and hilarious even in his sleep. Extraordinary.

Of course, the night couldn't pass without a little vengeance.

So, on the team's flight to Toronto, Beasley was able to snap one of Udonis himself.

Beasley also got one of LeBron. Because, you have to get one of LeBron.

So much fun, these guys.

Seriously, if you still hate the Heat, fuck you.
