Watch Dwyane Wade Set LeBron James Up for Picture-Perfect Oop

In the middle of their dominant first quarter over the Sacramento Kings, the Miami Heat saw their big superstars collaborate on an eye-popping alley-oop in the midst of their 28-17 first quarter.

It wasn't the first time we've seen the tandem hook up, and it's definitely not going to be the last, but this was surely one of the best we've seen from the two of them.

Not only did Mario Chalmers initiate the play with an improbable save, but the majority of the team was involved, as an outlet pass from Chis Bosh got the whole thing going.

The result was filthy.

Some stars say they tune out criticism, but not LeBron. He gives the people what they want, and admitted as much after the game.

My favorite part about the entire thing is that it was the perfect chance for Miami's commentating team to show off how much of a caricature they are of hometown announcers.

They've got everything: silly catch phrases, terrific, out-of-place accents, a short-term memory (it'll be a long time before these two top the full-court alley-oop) and just a fun sense of whimsy for everything going on. Those two get a bad rap.

It's times like these when it's hard for your run-of-the-mill Heat naysayer to continue to say nay.
