Here's a Video of Shane Battier Singing The Love Boat Theme Song in a Captain's Hat

Shane Battier: great three-point shooter. Horrible singer.

That didn't stop the Miami Heat forward from belting out the theme from The Love Boat on YouTube to promote his upcoming star-studded karaoke-themed charity gala.

We appreciate the effort, Shane. Your passion really shines through, but you've got to work on your tone and it was a bit pitchy in spots. Otherwise good job.

If you would like to see the real thing you can shell out $250 for tickets to the "South Beach Battioke" event on January 21, at the Eden Roc Renaissance Hotel in Miami Beach. It benefits The Battier Take Charge Foundation.

Apparently that ticket also gets you the chance to see LeBron James sing in person, and who doesn't want to see that?
