Damn, it (must) feel good to be a gangsta. And by gangsta, we mean the Miami Heat.
After slaughtering the San Antonio Spurs and racking up the third NBA title in franchise history last night, Miami's best professional sports team celebrated its incredible victory till the wee hours of Friday morning at Story Nightclub on South Beach.
"It's gonna get real loud," Heat point guard Norris Cole told reporters gathered outside of Story. "Two for two, back-to-back, it doesn't get any better than that. I love my teammates. I love the fans here in Miami. And we about to have a good time with them."
Miami Beach mayoral candidate and pro-pot pioneer Steve Berke was also at Story last night. The comedian/activist claims to have uploaded the "first video on YouTube of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade popping bottles and eating pizza with Drake after winning the championship!"
Team owner Micky Arison, president Pat Riley, and coach Erik Spoelstra were also in attendance and downed several bottles of Dom Pérignon, according to Huffington Post Miami.
And for three-time NBA champion Dwyane Wade, watching the sunrise this morning reminded him of how awesome greatness can be.
