It didn't take long — after the Miami Heat defeated the San Antonio Spurs in an epic Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals to earn their second consecutive NBA championship Thursday night — for the league's online store to put up a treasure-trove of title-themed items up for sale while fickle Heat fans were still in their frenzied state.
There's lots of the usual collectibles — pennants, rally towels, magnets, decals — but the real prizes are the collectible bobbleheads depicting members of the Heat cradling the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy in their arms.
In its haste to market the win, the league's $29.95 bobblehead version of reserve center Chris Andersen
seems to be missing something important. At first glance the Birdman's mohawk is fairly accurate and the bobbleface sort of looks like the player, but the mini-version of Anderson is devoid of his most visible feature — the tattoos
! All 324 of them!
We know these collectible figures, made in the likeness of the players, are more cartoon than lifelike, but how can you forget Andersen's infamous ink work?
My guess: The Birdman bobblehead comes with a coloring kit where you get to play tattoo artist and draw your own designs on the bare-skinned plastic body.
Where's that tiny brush?
This is by far the best Vine video of all time. Watching Chris Bosh trying to get confetti off his face without using his hands is absolutely hysterical. The poor guy just cannot catch a break when it comes to this stuff. [@netw3rk]
Tweet One of the biggest punchlines of the 2013 NBA Finals has been Juwan Howard standing on the sideline of the Miami Heat in a suit, for the most part. Howard is the last remaining member of the Fab Five in the league right now, but he doesn’t really have enough left to actually contribute. [...]
LeBron James and the Miami Heat have won back-to-back championships and after the game LeBron James said, he was just a guy from the inner city of Akron, Ohio. He went on to say he wasn’t even suppose to be there. Well he is there. He is putting on his second consecutive championship ring and he may not be finished yet. The way LeBron plays basketball, it looks like it is his destiny...
The good life: not even noticing when an attractive waitress pours you champagne. LeBron James and several members of the Miami Heat team partied at Story Nightclub, where they probably had the time of their lives drinking Dom Perignon and eating pizza. Also, hey there Damon Jones.

Chris Bosh may not have scored any points in Game 7, but that doesn't mean he isn't going to pop bottles like only Chris Bosh would.
This is just so, so, so Chris Bosh. The only way it could be MORE Chris Bosh is if it wasn’t confetti in his mouth, but another dude’s toes.

It took about 15 hours, but Drake finally addressed the story that went viral of him being denied access to the Miami Heat locker room after the team won the NBA championship on Thursday night. As we shared with you early Friday morning, Drake and some members of his entourage tried to get into the [...]
If the Spurs turn around and won Game 7 of the NBA Finals there would be a lot of people in some third world country rocking out to this collection. Luckily for Nike and the Miami Heat that the Spurs didn’t.

Chris Bosh introduced a new Bosh Face to the world during Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
Yeah…yeah they’re boom shakalakanin. I’d still play with the Zeke/Lambier Pistons if I could though. (great shirt from Bustedtees)

Bill Simmons was probably saying something insightful here, but it doesn’t really matter. This guy stole the show.
If you wanted to reach LeBron James on Thursday night, well, the King was busy wrapping up his second straight championship. Leave a message.
