"Last season, the Heat put together one of the most dominating regular seasons ever by a defending champion," President Obama said. "They won a team-record 66 games. At one point, they won 27 games straight -- the second-longest winning streak ever."
The President congratulated head coach Eric Spoelstra, team president Pat Riley, and members of the staff and crew, and gave a special congrats to the all-star Heat lineup for their hard work last season including finals MVP Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Ray Allen, Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers, Shane Battier, Udonis Haslem, and Chris Anderson.
“So bottom line is, outstanding athletes, outstanding organization, outstanding team, but also outstanding members of their community. And so we’re very proud to have them back. We wish them great luck for the rest of the season, unless they’re playing the Bulls,” stated President Obama during his speech.
After President Obama's remarks, Coach Spoelstra presented the President with an honorary trophy signed by the entire team and a jersey. The President, a longtime Bulls fan even joked "You know, you guys are winning me over a little bit."
