Chris Bosh tied the knot this past weekend at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
Normally, a NBA player getting married wouldn’t be huge news. But the guest list included current players and NBA executives, a no-no as part of the NBA lockout.
The league signed off on both sides interacting at Bosh’s wedding, but it still created an awkward situation, according to the NY Post:
“But while Heat stars James, Wade — recovering from Lasik eye surgery and sporting shades, both pictured below with Bosh — and Juwan Howard were seated in an area separate from the suits’, they later mingled on the dance floor with team GM Pat Riley, coach Erik Spoelstra, vice president Nick Arison, the son of Heat owner Micky Arison and former Heat all-star Alonzo Mourning, who now works in player relations. They got special permission from the league to attend the glitzy bash together.
One guest said, “The players were on one side of the ballroom, the executives on the other, and later they met on the dance floor.”
