One of the perks of winning an NBA Championship is the opportunity to visit the White House and meet with the the President. Today was that day for the Miami Heat. The entire Heat team, staff and owner Micky Arison were on hand as President Obama took the time to honor the Heat, crack a few jokes at their expense and celebrate their 2012 NBA title.
A few of the highlights:
- The President bringing up Dwyane Wade’s fashion sense. Check the shoes.
- The President commending Lebron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade as outstanding examples in the push for active and involved fathers.
- Lebron being super geeked that he and his teammates are actually in the White House, living the dream. His exact quote, “mama I made it” It was so cute, LeBron called him “Pres”
Of course Adrienne Bosh, Gabrielle Union, Jenine Howard, Faith Reign and the other Heat wives were there to soak up the moment. Savannah Brinson didn’t make the trip.
