Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem will appear at the Miami Hoops Gear store at the Dolphin Mall on Wednesday as part of the Panini Adrenalyn Tour.
Panini, the NBA’s trading card partner, has launched an interactive trading card game and will be distributing up to 4 million packs of Adrenalyn cards and game boards across the country.
Panini will arrive with the Adrenalyn Bus, which bears photos of Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and Dirk Nowitzki, and will travel more than 12,000 miles in support of the game, which is geared to children ages 6 to 11.
Haslem will be coaching kids on their free throwing on an NBA half-court, and playing the Adrenalyn game.
Haslem is scheduled to be at the store from 5 to 7 p.m., at Miami Hoops Gear at 11401 Northwest 12th St., Miami. Learn more about the game at paniniadrenalyn.com.
Meanwhile, the Heat announced a multi-year partnership with Panini America today and will host "Panini Adrenalyn Night" at Thursday's Heat-Los Angeles Lakers game at AmericanAirlines Arena. The team will give out 12,000 packs of cards and game boards to fans attending the game. Each pack will contain a Dwyane Wade All-Star card. The Adrenalyn Bus will also be at the arena Thursday, so fans can play the trading card game and participate in basketball skills contests before the Heat game.
