Miami Heat Video: Watch LeBron James' Amazing Alley-Oop to Dwyane Wade

Is this NBA2K12?  

Apparently, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade think they are holding down buttons on the controller as they connect for routine alley-oop slams.

This ridiculous half-court lob is the latest example.

Plays like this are what make Heat games must-see TV. At the blink of an eye, something spectacular can happen. It's the LeBron-Wade factor.

As James is bringing the ball up, just as he crosses half court, he lofts a beautifully timed and placed lob to Wade for the two hand flush.

The play helped Wade and the Heat get out to a fast start as they host the Orlando Magic in a Sunday matinee. The dunk gave the Heat a 6-5 edge, and the Heat rode Wade's 12 points to a 22-19 edge in the first quarter. 

The Magic have subsequently started the second quarter on an 8-2 run to regain the lead. 

The Heat will try to regain control of the contest. Despite the delicious dime, James has started slow with only four points. They will need him to start to string together some buckets to down their Floridian rivals.

If possible, it is in your best interest to tune into this contest. Not just because it's a great matchup of Southeastern Division rivals—the Heat are 24-7 and they own a four-game lead over the Magic, who are 20-11—it's also advisable because there is no telling when the next great play will happen.

Love 'em or hate 'em, there is no denying their polarizing quality.
