Erik Spoelstra, with his hat to the back, took a moment at the Heat's championship celebration to say that Miami "parties better than any other city in the world." Sometimes, that includes Pat Riley dancing. Or "dancing." Maybe malfunctioning?
Dwyane Wade was the only one of the Heat's players to wear a tank top — typical Floridian attire for June, or March, or November — to the Heat's parade and celebration, and he also remembered to wear deodorant, and to accessorize with a cigar and a pair of sunglasses that he kept on inside American Airlines Arena. He is as Floridian as any Carl Hiaasen character now.
In truth, though, this team is so, so Floridian: Ray Allen cited the Heat's "Harlem Shake" video as one of the most fun things the team did this year; Frederica Wilson, Florida Congresswoman and "avid wearer of hats," showed up in a white cowboy hat; Juwan Howard, who played 51 minutes in this 2012-13 season, bellowed "We shocked the WOOOOOOOOOORLD!"; the Heat showed a series of PhotoShopped pictures of celebrities with high-top fades while interviewing Norris Cole; Chris Bosh spoke a bit of fluent Spanish ("Me siento bien. Muy bien."), and he grinned as the Heat showed a montage of his "Bosh-bombing."
