MIAMI – The Miami Heat beat the Pacers on Monday night. A lot of baskets, points, blah, blah, blah.
But even though guard Goran Dragic was the MVP on the floor, the actual star of the game may have been a fan cheering the team from the stands.
While all eyes should have been focused on Dragic after a sweet lay-up, those same eyes quickly turned to a young, exuberant blonde sitting in the front row.
Wearing a dress considered revealing even by South Florida standards, the spirited member of Heat Nation turned out to be Alyssa Nelson.
And as they say in show business, you can't buy this kind of publicity.
Like Dwyane Wade on a hot streak, Nelson's Instagram site caught fire, with new admirers following by the thousands.
Media outlets such as the New York Daily News and Fox News have featured the passionate Nelson on television and the web.
Nelson's account now has over 19,000 followers and includes many pictures of the young lady in various poses at various locations.
And just to prove that her loyalties aren't sworn to the Heat, Nelson has included a photo of herself in a Florida Panthers jersey, showing that she's one cool cat.
