Each time Miami Heat center Greg Oden steps on the court, it’s a success for him and the franchise. There are also moments like Tuesday night’s game against the Boston Celtics that tease just how good he could be if his knees cooperate.

It’s been a long time coming for Miami Heat superstar LeBron James, but Tuesday night, he will officially receive his first NBA championship ring and watch as the team hoists another championship banner into the rafters of the AmericanAirlines Arena.
