MIAMI BEACH (CBS4) – It was just after 3 a.m. Friday when the newly crowned kings of the NBA reigned supreme at Club LIV in The Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach.
“The players went up to stage and entertained everyone from 3 a.m. till close. Quite a spectacle,” said celebrity photographer Seth Browarnik.
And although the assumption that the players informal after party would be at LIV, there was no guarantee, so Browarnik had half a dozen cameras fanned across the top clubs in town just in case .
“At 1:30 in the morning I was waiting at LIV, sweating it out wondering, ‘am I in the right place?’” said Seth.
As it turns out, he was the right place and the right time and got the exclusive shots and video of the champions in full party mode.
“I think these guys could have a career as rappers, they were going at it so hard,” said Browarnik.
Heat owner Micky Arison, Head Coach Erik Spoelstra and the players special ladies all celebrated in style, including enjoying an $80 thousand bottle of Ace of Spades Champagne.
“I’m not sure if they bought it or not, but it was well deserved,” he said
Seth and his team uploaded the photos and video very early Friday morning and by 9am, his website had 20 thousand hits .
“I am anticipating 60-100 thousand hits by the end of today,” said Browarnik. “It’s pretty wild.”
“It’s got to make you feel good knowing you are documenting a party of history,” said CBS4’s Lisa Petrillo.
I’m in a fog now, but I have the chills thinking about it and it’s awesome,” said Seth.
