James Ennis Ended Rasual Butler With a Dunk as Heat Win Season Opener

The Miami Heat kicked off the post-James era Wednesday night by having their new James -- James Ennis -- absolutely obliterate Washington Wizards guard Rasual Butler with a devastating dunk that shook the Earth and rattled the jewelry of those sitting in the lower bowl at the American Airlines Arena.

Meanwhile, Chris Bosh announced his presence with authority and reminded everyone that he is, in fact, a skull-smashing half-man/half-dinosaur by flushing down 26 points and grabbing 15 rebounds in an ultimate show of prowess as the Miami Heat's newly designated Man.

The result was a 107-95 opening-night win for the new-look Heat.
