Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh, kept their promise to Miami when the Miami Heat hand-delivered the fans, the 2012 NBA Championship. The whole city is in great spirits now that the team is world champions. Tens of thousands of people lined up today on the streets of downtown Miami to cheer and celebrate the Heat's victory. "I appreciate all our fans for sticking with us," said the now two-time NBA champion Wade, who cradled the trophy in his arms most of the ride, adding, "Best fans in the world." (cbsnews) Check out the photos of the celebration. A ton of people all happy at the same damn time!
Lebron, Dwayne Wade, and the others from the Miami Heat wasted no time and started celebrating immediately after their championship game! Of course, South Beach was the place to be for endless partying. First, it was Club Liv on Thursday, where the Heat celebrated with DJ Irie and rap group LMFAO. Next, Friday, it was an exclusive star-studded celebration at the notorious Club Play.,, And this is just the beginning!! As we still have tonight (Saturday), and Sunday (which everyone will probably be at Club Liv again), ending with the Parade Monday morning on Biscayne Blvd in downtown Miami, then the party continues at the King of Diamonds Monday Night. Miami is a magical city and everyone is on cloud 9 right now. The party will no doubt, probably last all year long. Congratulations MIAMI HEAT! WORLD NBA CHAMPIONS! And thanks for keeping our city on top!
