Heat host hot Miami parade

  • Print

MIAMI -- LeBron James stood atop a double-decker bus with a cigar in his mouth for the parade, then kissed the championship trophy when the party moved indoors. Shane Battier blew kisses to the crowd, Dwyane Wade raised three fingers aloft and Chris Andersen flapped his arms in a nod to his "Birdman" moniker.

By now, the NBA champion Miami Heat have figured out how to enjoy a party.

Players, families, staff members and friends crammed buses, flatbed trucks and cars for the parade honouring the latest Heat championship, with the caravan snaking its way through downtown Miami. An estimated crowd of 400,000 turned out on a hot, steamy morning where the heat index reached the mid-90s by 11 a.m.

"It's the ultimate," James told Sun Sports, the Heat broadcast partner, as he rode along the route. "It's the ultimate. This is what I came down here, to be able to have a parade at the end of the year. I'm extremely blessed, man. It doesn't get any better than this."
