Obama to Honor the Miami Heat for Being the Most Awesome Basketball Team on the Planet
As you may have heard, the Miami Heat are kind of a big deal. In that the team eradicates anyone and anything that gets in its way of winning basketball games.
And, as you may have heard, the Miami Heat won the NBA title last year.
So, as is custom in this great nation of ours, the President of the United States of America will be honoring the Heat on Monday afternoon for being awesome.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and the rest of the Heat will meet with Obama at the White House starting at 1:40 Monday afternoon.
It's the second time in franchise history the Heat are meeting with the president after conquering the NBA (we're pretty sure this time around won't be as goofy).
Although things might get awkward when the team presents Obama with the traditional Number 1 jersey, seeing how that number belongs to Chris Bosh and all.
The Heat is not only awesome on the basketball court but also pretty awesome when it comes to supporting our troops. According to the White House, the team will be recognized for its "ongoing support to the men and women who serve in our military and their families."
We hope LeBron will be OK for the ceremony, as he tweeted this earlier in the day:
If LeBron got cray during a night on the town in DC with a couple of Secret Service agents, we hope the president lets it slide*.
After all, who else can the president call to defeat the inevitable invading robot aliens with laser canons attached to their heads but LeBron?
Allowing LeBron James to get crunktastical with some Secret Service agents is a matter of national security, really.
(*Note -- it might just be a run-of-the-mill migraine headache in no way related to alcohol or getting crunktastical)
