Miami-Dade mayor Carlos A. Gimenez congratulates the Miami Heat on their NBA World Championship title

On behalf of all the residents of Miami-Dade County, I would like to congratulate the Miami Heat players, coaches and staff for their extraordinary efforts in beating such an outstanding team as the Oklahoma City Thunder.  The Heat's path to becoming NBA champions truly exemplified the hard-earned team effort required to accomplish such a demanding and grueling feat.  Today, all Miamians feel the pride that comes from such a win, and join the Heat players in celebrating their great win. Go Heat!!
