Pitbull, LeBron James, and Burnie Do It Up at Miami Heat Pre-Game Party Tonight

What the hell is Burnie anyway? He looks like a rejected Muppet that's been sleeping in a dumpster, a 7'6" bag of ratty orange fur with a swollen green mini-basketball for a nose. And his official Miami Heat bio doesn't help at all. It just totally dodges the question.

Anyway, the Heat's sad, second-rate mascot will be partying with Pitbull (and possibly LeBron James?) at the American Airlines Arena as part of a pre-game street party for tonight's home opener.

Expect a live show from Pit, mixes from DJ MDOT, the Heat Dancers shaking ass, and Burnie napping in the trash. See the cut for the schedule and full details.

5:45 p.m. Miami Heat Dancers get down.

6:45 p.m. Burnie does something.

7:00 p.m. Pitbull performs.

Pitbull and T-Mobile Tip-Off Event. Friday, October 29. American Airlines Arena, East Plaza, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. The party starts at 5:30 p.m. and it's free for game ticketholders and T-Mobile customers. Everyone else can visit the T-Mobile store at Kendall Corners (12801 N. Kendall Dr.) to request Tip-Off tickets.
