PHOTO: Dwyane Wade Mocks Cam Newton With Superman Celebration

If you're an NBA player, what would you do if you had just hit a clutch shot on the road, while the highest-profile player of your opponent's neighboring NFL team sat courtside? That's the question Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade found faced yesterday after he hit the game-winning basket with 2.9 seconds remaining against the Charlotte Bobcats. Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton watched from courtside seats, and Wade gave him a dose of his own medicine.

Here's Wade staring Newton down while perfoming the presumptive Rookie of the Year's trademark Superman touchdown celebration:

Not bad, D-Wade. Not bad at all.

The 96-95 win over Charlotte improved the Heat to 3-0 on the season. Their next game is set for Friday as they take on the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis.
