The Heat are rocking and rolling through the beginning of the NBA season and now other star athletes are beginning to gravitate toward the American Airlines Arena. Case in point, World Cup winner with France Paul Pogba was spotted at Miami Heat's Saturday night game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Soccer star was treated to one heck of a performance from the home team. After Saturday night's 109-94 victory over the Pelicans, Heat fans were certainly feeling good. Dwyane Wade's daughter probably embodies the general mood of the night best:
While Miami was definitely loving the win, few Heat fans had as cool of a night as Paul Pogba did.
Pogba has been recovering from an ankle injury which has sidelined him from the action with his Manchester United and French teammates. The 26-year-old decided to stop by Miami to check up on his pal Jimmy Butler.
Butler has endeared himself to the international soccer community over the years. Most notably, the Heat star has been pretty open about his friendship with Brazilian astro Neymar.
Pogba enjoyed a red carpet-special treatment throughout the evening. Apart from sitting courtside, Pogba got to check out the Heat facilities and even shoot some hoops.
It's safe to say: the Heat has a new superfan in Paul Pogba. The Frenchman clearly loved taking a step into the basketball world.
The Heat is undefeated at home and will look for that to continue as Miami hosts the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday.
