Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa's statement on the Miami Heat's championship

On behalf of the Board of County Commissioners, and as proud HEAT fans, we want to offer our enthusiastic congratulations to the Miami HEAT for winning its second consecutive NBA championship.  

Last night’s game was certainly one for the history books. The HEAT played brilliantly against one of the top teams in the NBA and finished off another stunning season by earning its third overall title in the NBA Finals. Miami-Dade County residents and HEAT fans everywhere should be proud to have such an outstanding team representing our community to the rest of the country and the world. 

I commend the team’s coaches and leaders and all the players, especially LeBron James for earning the NBA Finals MVP for the second year in a row. I’m sure fans will be celebrating in full force this weekend, so let’s celebrate proudly and safely and show the world how much we love our home team. GO HEAT!
