High school student scores the ultimate date after making her request public.
Credit where it is due for Nicole Muxo, a senior at Miami’s Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School, she has plenty of guts.
The rabid Miami Heat fan went out on a limb and asked the Dwyane Wade, the nine-time All-Star and two-time NBA champion, if he would accompany her to prom.
In a video-request Muxo edited a clip together, featuring Kanye West, who like Wade was born in Chicago, spelling out her invitation, which has now earned her more than 270,000 views on You Tube.
When the big night came Muxo thought she had missed out on her once-in-a-lifetime chance when Wade called her to apologise for not being able to make it.
Only to sneak in a side door and surprise his biggest fan with a bunch of flowers.
And despite battling knee injuries and soreness for much of the NBA season, Wade still got out on the dance-floor to bust a move with his date for the night.
How many other sporting superstars would do that for a fan?
