Dwyane Wade faces constant questioning about when he'll return from a knee injury to push the Miami Heat in their playoff run.

So, naturally, the 31-year-old Wade spent his Friday night at a Miami high school's prom. And it looks like he made it a night/year/life to remember for his date.

Nicole Muxo, a senior at Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School in Miami, asked Wade to her school's prom on April 20 via a YouTube video. Somewhere along the line, Wade decided to take her up on it.

But even Muxo was surprised by his appearance. Wade explains how it all unfolded to WSVN-TV in Miami:

"She actually DM'd me on Twitter and said, 'This is the address, this is where I'm gonna be just in case,' and when I got that I said I won't be doing nothing tomorrow night and I can go and make this a memorable moment for her," said Wade.

No word on whether Birdman got an invite.

This is a great gesture by Wade, who's off until Wednesday. But we still have a lot of questions about this appearance. Why no tux? Did Wade roll with capri pants, as he is wont to do? And is he capable of dancing without wearing a bear head?
