Miami Heat show LeBron James tribute during Christmas day game [Video]


The “Big 3” era with the Miami Heat started in 2010. After four finals appearances and two NBA titles, LeBron returned to his home state of Ohio, and the team that drafted him, the Cleveland Cavailers.

King James returned to Miami on Christmas for a holiday showdown against his old team. The Heat showed a minute long tribute video for LeBron, and the crowd gave him a standing ovation.

Pat Riley is the MAN.

Dwyane Wade brought ‘FLASH’ out of retireent, scoring 24 points in the first half, and 31 to end the night. The Heat ended up knocking the Cavs down a few pegs with a win, but one thing that won’t change, LeBron and DWade’s friendship.

Bigger than basketball… #mybrotherforlife this game is a stepping stone for what's to come in the future..
