Now the team and the Heat faithful will bask in the glory of the accomplishment with a parade through Miami on Monday at 11:00 a.m. ET. The 305.com tweeted out the basic when and where for the celebration:
According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the parade will go through downtown Miami before winding up at AmericanAirlines Arena. The team will then hold a ticketed championship rally inside the arena. According to WPTV.com, the team's 2012 parade was nearly two miles long and was attended by thousands of fans.
After another impressive postseason run from the Heat, the celebration should be just as grand this time around. Home-court advantage turned out to play a big role in the Heat's championship run. After three games in San Antonio, the Heat returned to Miami with the difficult task of winning two straight to win the title.
A dramatic overtime win over the Spurs in Game 6 set up the pivotal Game 7. From there, LeBron James was able to seal the deal in front of the Miami crowd.
The four-time NBA MVP went off for 37 points and 12 rebounds as the Heat clinched the series with a 95-88 win. It is the third championship in Miami Heat history.
According to the Sun-Sentinel, more details about the parade are expected to be released on Friday afternoon. Be sure to check back with this page for those details as they become available.
