In your wanderings of Miami, you may have spotted Miami Heat sharp-shooters LeBron, Wade and Bosh chilling at your preferred pub or restaurant, no doubt with an intimidating entourage at the ready to stand between you and your favorite baller.
That won't be a problem this week in Miami Beach, where the 2012 NBA champs can be found at the Williams McCall Gallery (110 Washington Ave., CU-3) striking heroic poses ¿ Wade launching up for a behind-the-head dunk, LeBron crouching and playing defense. The white-hot Heat won't be seen in person, sadly, but in the works of Coconut Grove collage artist Erika King and Boston-based sports illustrator Larry Johnson.
Johnson has painted everyone from Bosh to the Boston Celtics, which we won't hold against him, while King mounts official NBA-sanctioned photo-collages of the winningest moments in the franchise's 25-year history.
The display, which continues through May 25, features King's collage of the Heat's 2006 and 2012 championships, Lebron's 2012 (and 2013) MVP win and others. Hours are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays. Free. 786-359-4321 or WilliamsMcCallGallery.com.
