Katsuya makes cocktail fit for a King (James)

LeBron James celebrated the Miami Heat’s big win over the Chicago Bulls Thursday night with Drake at Katsuya’s Dragon Lounge at the SLS Hotel South Beach. Although James was not drinking, Katsuya has added a special victory cocktail to the list — the Heat Kanji Cocktail.

Miami Heat player Juwan Howard was seen with three friends Wednesday night at The Forge’s bar, celebrating his team’s big win. Meanwhile, over at Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill, Chris Bosh was having his own post-game dinner celebration and at Zuma, Ray Allen and his wife toasted to the victory.

Despite their loss, Chicago Bulls players Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah headed to Prime 112 after the game, joined by Milwaukee Bucks player Drew Gooden. Also eating there on Wednesday night was NFL cornerback Asante Samuel. On Thursday night, the athletes continued to roll into their unofficial commissary as Miami Heat player Shane Battier had dinner there as did NBA all-star Andre Iguodala. Also in on Thursday night: former Florida Marlins player Cody Ross, seen dining with bunch of his Arizona Diamondbacks teammates.

Speaking of Noah, our spies tell us he checked into the Shore Club at 7 a.m. Thursday “with a leggy blonde.” Not the same so-called socialite who infamously flipped him the bird; this was a different woman who joined Noah after a night of “post-loss partying at a strip club.”

Brooklyn Nets player Kris Humphries spent Monday night at FDR at the Delano. The former Mr. Kardashian was seen partying until 2 a.m. with friends at a table and was with, says our spy, “an attractive dark haired girl with very similar coloring to Kim.”

Following Crosby, Stills & Nash’s shows at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Stephen Stills was spotted in Tuesday in the Turnberry Isle Miami lobby and later lunching at the resort’s Cascata Grill.

Martina Navratilova enjoyed lunch Tuesday on the terrace at Makoto at Bal Harbour Shops on Tuesday with her girlfriend and their young daughter. The tennis legend was also spotted Thursday having lunch at Bianca at the Delano.

British indie rock band Bloc Party brought down Soho Studios Thursday night at the ABSOLUT X event where the band performed an hour long set including their greatest hits.

    Dwyane Wade & Gabrielle Union: Top secret wedding location

    We are left wondering where Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are going to get hitched at the end of next month. A peek of the invite leaked on TMZ says to “put on your dancing shoes” for a “throw down.” An enclosed note with blacked-out words tells guests to meet up at a hotel, where they will be transported to the wedding site. If they prefer to drive, attendees are directed to call a number for instructions on how to get to the venue that is “45 to 50 minutes south of South Beach.” Um, the Biltmore? Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne? Private estate? Your guess is as good as ours.
