    Video of Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade dropping by a New York City playground to play impromptu basketball with some children is making its rounds online.

    After playing against the Knicks -- and winning -- at Madison Square Garden Sunday, Wade spent some extra time in New York, taking in a Yankee game and shopping downtown.

    That's what Wade was apparently doing in SoHo when he spotted a basketball game underway at  nearby Thompson Street Playground. The video shows Wade striding toward the park, joking, "They might not let me play."

    He greets the boys and spends some time playing ball with them.

    Wade later tweeted, "Coolest moment of the day," along with a photo.
