Miami Heat to Celebrate Title With Victory Parade on Monday

by June 25, 2012

The Miami Heat and their fans will keep the party rolling today with a victory parade for the franchise’s second NBA championship. Per the Miami Herald: “The Heat, its fans and the city celebrated the franchise’s second NBA championship over the weekend, and Monday’s parade up Biscayne Boulevard will be the culmination of those festivities. The parade begins at 11 a.m. on the corner of SW 8th Street and SW 2nd Avenue and then heads east into Brickell before turning north on Brickell Avenue and then onto Biscayne Boulevard. Other than an interview from LeBron James with ESPN on Sunday, the Heat’s players have done nothing but celebrate since winning the NBA Finals on Thursday night. Dwyane Wade made it clear on his Twitter account that he wouldn’t be sleeping much in the days before Monday, so count him out for the parade’s dancing award based on exhaustion. In anticipation of a championship, Wade had T-shirts made for his days-long celebration, which read ‘Team No Sleep.’ He wrote on Twitter that he was partying ‘right up until the parade.’ James’ first order of business after winning the championship and the Finals MVP Award was to thank his fans with a video on his website.”
