Pearl Jam and Dwyane Wade: Now Officially Miami Heat Housemates
The grunge quintet accepts Wade's generous gift of the key to American Airlines Arena
Last week, All-Star Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade extended an invitation to legendary grunge outfit (and longtime NBA devotees) Pearl Jam to visit his “house” — that is, home court American Airlines Arena — when they come to MIA this week on their upcoming North American tour, sending them a key to the stadium. Over the weekend, Eddie Vedder and the boys posted a video of them accepting the invitation with understandably confused gratitude, and returning the favor by promising to send Wade and his buds a key to their own practice facility (“You know, when you play the Sonics… gahhhh!“).
This could be the beginning of a beautiful, extremely rainy friendship. Watch the video here, via Stereogum.
