Last night’s edition of NBC’s “Deal Or No Deal” featured contestant Arthur Joseph, a “Miami Heat superfan.” The models that open the cases were all wearing Heat jerseys. The episode also featured a message from Heat G Dwyane Wade on the court at AmericanAirlines Arena. Wade offered Joseph two season tickets, the opportunity to sit courtside for one game and meet him and C Shaquille O’Neal, the autographed “jersey off my back,” a Heat championship ring with Joseph’s name on it, a team poster with Joseph in it signed by all the players, “exclusive access to next season’s Miami Heat video shoot” and a trip to his native Trinidad where the Heat would refurbish a basketball court in his honor with their logo on it. Wade: “It’s time for you to decide: Heat or no Heat?” The offer was worth $60,700, and an additional $10,000 in cash made the total deal offer $70,700. Joseph accepted the deal despite the $1M case still being in play.Idiot! Just kidding....that's love for a team right there. There's also a debate today after Joey Crawford called a foul for Wade on Howie Mandel even though the host has a germ phobia and rarely touches people. David Stern could not be reached for comment.
