For the second consecutive season, the Miami Heat won the NBA title and LeBron James was named Finals MVP. NBA players took to Twitter to congratulate the repeat champs and express their admiration for James, who now has a pair of Finals MVP trophies to go along with his four regular-season MVPs.
Congrats to the heat. Lebron is the best player on the planet. Off to bed for a few more hours.
