For the Miami Heat, failure was not an option last night.
And not because taking the title would've proved that much more difficult in Oklahoma City, but because the post-victory celebration would've likely gone down at an Applebee's and ended at midnight.
Instead, the Heat closed the series out at home and LeBron was crowned NBA Finals MVP. To celebrate, the team headed over to LIV and dropped mad loot, popping $75,000 bottles of champagne till 6 a.m. like they'd just won a championship and silenced the haters.
Oh yeah, they did win a championship and silenced the haters.
Check out video of the Heat's celebration after the cut.
Rocking a "Team No Sleep" t-shirt and his NBA Champions hat, Dwyane Wade grabbed the mike and rapped a few bars of "Niggas in Paris," the Heat's playoff intro song.
LeBron James also showed off his rap skills, spitting a few verses of 2 Chainz's "Riot."
"I eat your girl up for breakfast/Won't save you no extra," 'Bron rapped as LMFAO backed his vocals from another stage. "Say she fucking with me/'Cause a real nigga's her preference."
