There's something inexplicably sexy about sweaty men, especially the men of the Miami Heat. Just look at the way they run across the basketball court at the AAA with perspiration slowly dripping down their chiseled biceps, how aggressively they fight for the ball, and how smoothly they score.
Maybe it's the hunger they have to win. But after watching el Heat play their hearts and souls out against the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6, their sexiness only exploded. And the ladies of Wood Tavern all agreed on one thing: The men of the Heat are steaming hot.
And when we win the title of NBA Champs tonight (fingers crossed), we're pretty sure panties will drop. Just check out the hottest Miami Heat players, according to the ladies.
Tie: Ray Allen and Dwyane Wade
"If it's just on looks," says Bahia Ramos.
But we're pretty sure the way that Ray shoots three-pointers and led the Heat to Game 7 of the NBA Finals has something to do with it.
"But Wade for style. He's bold and unexpected. He takes chances."
Guess Bahia digs men in capri suits and flip glasses.
"I have a strange obsession with his hair," admits Ingrid Gonzalez about the Heat guard. "The way that it flows and how soft it looks."
It could also be how he scored a three-pointer... while wearing only one shoe.
"He's just sooo big," says Agustina, who's visiting from Argentina. (Yep, we're international.)
"He's like," her friend interrupts, "the Messi of basketball."
"Are there any women on the team?" asks Bridget Pelaez.
"No, I'm afraid not."
"Then none, sorry!" she responds. "But if I had to choose, it would be Chris Bosh.
"It's his ability to self-express his personality and his audacity to be himself against the negativity he faces in Miami. His main goal is to be one of the best teammates he can be.
"Beauty is not just on the outside; it's in the inside."
Tie: Shane Battier and LeBron James
"Even though he's bald, Battier's one of the hottest boys on the team," says Veronica Peron.
"[But LeBron] doesn't show how cocky he is. He just puffs up his hotness.

"The cut of his muscles and the way he makes those three-pointers, girl, he can make three-pointers on me all night!"
Well, hopefully, he'll be doing a whole lotta that tonight.
