        Let me begin by saying...All Hail the King!  Congratulations to LeBron James and the Miami Heat.  The validation of your journey is now over and a small vision from Pat Riley in 2008 was realized.  LeBron James caught much hell for jokingly saying that the Heat would will multiple championships but it's the first one that will be forever special.  I'd like to say thank you to Dwyane Wade for showing a selflessness with helping Pat Riley bring the master plan of the Big 3 to fruition.  To Shane Battier, Mike Miller, and Juwan Howard, thank you for putting your bodies on the line and leaving everything you had the court to reach the mountain top.  Your contributions were just as important as the Big 3, enjoy this moment forever because you are now NBA Champions.  There hasn't been many "big men" in the NBA in recent memory that are as skilled as Chris Bosh.  Your rebounding and timely shooting has been a great aid to the Miami Heat for the last two years.  Thank you for sacrificing more dollars for a chance to become an NBA immortal.  You can now stand shoulder to shoulder with your NBA idol, Kevin Garnett.  

People say that "real" teams win NBA Championships and that's why the Heat lost to the Mavericks last season during the championship round; it's also the reason 90% of NBA fans and analyst chose the Thunder over the Heat.  The truth is that "real" teams do win NBA Championships and that's why the Miami Heat are your 2012 NBA Champions.  This team used a vision, sacrifice, and devotion to lay it all on the line and deliver the much awaited crown to the one true King.  Last but not least I would like to say thank you to the Oklahoma City Thunder.  When I see your team play I see all that is good with the NBA and your time to reach the mountain top come sooner than most think.  You were truly worthy opponents.  Detractors can say what they want about LeBron James, they can call him all of the names in the book but don't forget to call him champion going forward.  The Miami Heat were a true team and they displayed that when LeBron James needed them the most for the much hated Decision was the best Decision of his life.  Hello Champion, I salute you on a job well done.
