It was the same team in the White House for the second straight year, but President Barack Obama delivered all-new material in congratulating the Miami Heat on another NBA championship.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and their teammates stood on risers behind the president in the White House’s East Room on Tuesday while Obama celebrated the team’s 2012-13 title with a traditional speech. The team then presented Obama with a team jersey and a replica of the NBA’s Larry O’Brien Trophy, which was signed by the team and listed Obama’s name among the players.
“This group has won twice now, but it’s gone to the Finals three times,” Obama said. “And sometimes it feels like they’re still fighting for a little respect. I can relate to that.”
