The Heat beat the Oklahoma City Thunder last season in five games to win the franchise's second NBA title.   

"I'm not going to take this moment for granted," James said via SportsIllustrated.com. "It doesn't happen to everyone. I know the history of the game. I am going to live in the moment. Not going to sit here and say I'm not. It's a special moment for not only our team, for our organization, for the city, whoever's a Miami Heat fan, our families, everything. We'll live in the moment, but we also have some other business to take care of as well."

The rings have the words "All In" and "Family" on each side of them and are filled with a reported 219 diamonds.

James was the last one to receive his ring while the fans chanted "MVP, MVP" inside American Airlines Arena.
