World Champions "Miami Heat" 1st NBA Title

Congratulations to the Miami Heat!!! My son said the night of the game prior to last night, he could not sleep from being so hyped up down to the last second, when the Heat won by one point.

My son goes to many of the games including a couple of the recent playoffs, so yes, you could say he is a huge fan. He stated last evening, I don't understand why they go so late at night, he usually goes to sleep earlier. Last night was thrilling for us all and the city is rockin!!!

The Heat captured its first NBA title as Finals MVP Dwyane Wade scored 36 points to help Miami claim a 4-2 series win.

With its best road performance of the season in Dallas, the Miami Heat are headed home today as NBA champions, winning their fourth straight game over the Mavericks behind 36 points by Finals MVP Dwyane Wade to win the franchise's first championship.

"Shaq promised a championship and we got it. I'm speechless," said Loren Gronzato, 21, of Fort Lauderdale as he called friends on his cell phone.
"Miami, we'll see you in a couple hours," Heat coach Pat Riley said before the trophy presentation in Dallas.
