Miami Heat superstar LeBron James invited his Miami Heat teammates to Thanksgiving dinner at his home in Cleveland because they had a road game there the night before. Just like happens to your Uncle Bob every year, the feast got the best of several of the players, and they fell asleep right after their meal. This isn't remarkable if you're Uncle Bob. However, if you're superstar Dwayne Wade (below), those pictures get sent all over the Internet! Click the source link for pictures of Heat player Michael Beasley and Heat Assistant Coach Bob McAdoo doing their Uncle Bob impersonation as well. (Source: Broward Palm Beach New Times)

Sleepiest Moment #7:
It's a great idea for athletes to take a nap before competing ... but, what about WHILE competing? Bears quarterback Josh McCown actually pulled that off. The November 17 Bears game against the Ravens was suspended midgame due to the threat of tornadoes in the area. During the weather delay, McCown says he laid down to start "visualizing plays". That "visualizing" quickly turned into dreaming about them, after he fell asleep. This might be a strategy that other athletes should consider imitating, as the Bears ended up winning the game.
