MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade hit the court at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel for a basketball camp Friday.

Men 35 and older paid big bucks to take part in a 4-day basketball camp at Loews Miami Beach Hotel. The two time NBA champ helped sharpen their skills and become better basketball players.

"Come together and make basketball and make this time fun," he said. "We have a lot of guys who are hardworking businessmen."

Coach Erik Spoelstra stopped by to help with some drills.

"I think they want to call us coach. They want all of us to treat them like we would our players," Spoelstra said.

"I'm a big basketball buff so to be able to come out here, and not just be with Dwyane but the great coaching staff that they have, it's like being a kid all over again," said MasTec CEO Jose Mas.

It's a fantasy to play with the pros -- one that these guys take seriously.

"When you see how hard they go -- from guys taking charges, diving on the ground -- makes my little knee problem I had in the finals seem like nothing," Wade said.
