Miami Heat

MIAMI (CBS4) – The new NBA champions are all the talk on Twitter. The Heat players, and even Heat owner Micky Arison, have been tweeting about the big win and the long night of partying.

There was serious praise for LeBron James all over social media. One of the first big tweets came from singer Rihanna at 12:57 a.m. She wrote, “Congrats to LeBron on his first wring! Well deserved HEAT!”

Friday morning at 9:04, Micky Arison (Carnival’s Chairman and the Managing Partner of the Miami Heat) tweeted: “Can’t believe I’m heading to the office to do the Carnival Corp 2nd quarter earnings call on virtually no sleep.”

That’s when the players started waking up too. At 10:46 in the morning, LeBron tweeted, “I think it just hit me, I’m a champion. I am a champion!”

Two hours later, Dwyane Wade wrote, “I woke up and went to the bathroom, and then got back in bed, until I realized OMG, it wasn’t a dream.”

But there’s also disappointment. Oklahoma City Thunder Player Kevin Durant tweeted, “it’s a tough way to end a season.” Then he congratulated the Miami Heat.
