The Heat's Juwan Howard played Connect Four at the NBA Cares Learn and Play Center on Monday.
The Miami Heat, who just nabbed their second victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals, took a break Monday for the opening of a renovated community center in Miami Springs.
The Miami Springs Community Center received a makeover, funded by Hewlett-Packard and State Farm, and was unveiled as the "NBA Cares Learn and Play Center."
Miami Heat players and dancers attended the ceremony with NBA Commissioner David Stern and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez.
"It makes us proud we have the opportunity to do this for you," Stern said to the community.
The transformed space includes a reading area with new books and computers, a foosball table and Heat-themed decorations.
"I hope all the parents understand that the players you see on court were once kids like the kids here," forward James Jones told NBC 6.
