The Heat are probably still celebrating winning the second of their back to back NBA Championships on Thursday night. They should be allowed to cherish this title. It was a tough fought series. Both the Heat and the Spurs played well and it made it an interesting series to watch. As the Spurs regroup and see what the future holds, the Heat are soaking up every minute of this moment. After Game 7 James even said at his post game press conference that if the Heat lost he might have had to cancel his wedding. James joked, “I got a wedding coming up with my beautiful fiancé. It will be an unbelievable wedding now that we’ve won instead of losing. I might have called it off if we had lost. So now it’s going to be one of the best weddings ever.” James ended up thanking the media for motivating him. In the past LeBron might have let people from the outside world get into his head. It would affect his play, but not anymore. He now knows how to work the media. Case in point. Just look what he said right before he left the podium. As James walks off the stage clutching his second straight Bill Russell Finals MVP Award, he says, “Please continue to motivate me, I need you guys.’’ Here is the video below. LeBron to media: ‘Please continue to motivate me’ by FOX_Sports_Interactive I have no issue with LeBron saying that. I think it is good for him to give the media a taste of their own medicine. He did it in such a great way too. He had both trophies on each side of him and was ready to walk off into the Miami sunset. Shane Battier celebrated winning it all by eating at Denny’s with his friends. That’s all I really need to say about that. Rapper Drake wanted to celebrate with LeBron and the rest of the team. And why not he chipped in with at least five points, three rebounds, and two assists. Oh wait he is not on the team. That is what security said to him and he was denied access to the Heat locker room. It really didn’t bother Drake too much since he caught up with James and Wade in celebrating the win at Story nightclub on South Beach. And last but not least ESPN celebrated the Heat winning the NBA Finals by cutting off Bill Simmons trying to talk about “The Decision.” Looks like the folks at ESPN did not want to go there.
