Heat White House cover photo

President Barack Obama honored the Miami Heat for winning the 2012 NBA Championship title earlier today.  Check out some of the pics and highlights including Obama’s speech, LeBron’s speech as he exclaims, “Mama, I made it!” and Obama telling Bron it’s his world!

According to the Associated Press (Photos via ABC):

Obama says every member “doing their part” is what put the Heat over the top, as he welcomed the team to the White House Monday to celebrate their victory. The Heat defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in five games in the NBA Finals last June.

The president also recognized the franchise for supporting military service members and said he was proud that many of them including LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade ”take their roles as fathers seriously.”

The crowd of well-wishers included U.N. ambassador Susan Rice and U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan. The Heat last visited the White House after winning in 2006.

Wade presented Obama with a Heat jersey bearing his name and the No. 44.
