The Champ is here! The eyes of the basketball world were centered in Miami on Monday, as the back-to-back World Champion Miami Heat, led by back-to-back MVP and NBA Finals MVP LeBron James officially began their quest for a 3-peat, hosting media day at American Airlines Arena.
LeBron decided to kick off the new season in style, sporting a pair of custom gold sneakers, featuring the O’Brien Trophy on the tongue.
All of the key members of the Heat’s 2013 Championship team were in full uniform (minus the 2nd blackest dude on the team last season, none other than Mike Miller) and some new faces as well, including certified Legend Michael Beasley, who was signed in the offseason to disprove the myth that LeBron doesn’t like playing with dudes that look like Delonte West.
