Obama honors NBA champ Miami Heat

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama honored the Miami Heat for winning the 2012 NBA Championship title after falling short just a year before.

“Everybody doing their part is what finally put the Heat over the top,’’ Obama said, as he welcomed the team to the White House Monday to celebrate the victory.

The Heat defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in five games in the NBA Finals last June.

LeBron James, who presented Obama with an autographed basketball, said the team including members that hail from Illinois, Texas, Michigan, Ohio and South Dakota was honored to be in the executive mansion.
