Miami Heat Parade 2012: Best Moments from the NBA Championship Celebration
The King's coronation is finally complete.
An NBA championship.
The championship parade made its way through downtown Miami to American Airlines Arena fairly quickly on Monday afternoon, but that doesn't mean it didn't have its moments.
Let's take a look at the best ones.

When guys like Juwan Howard and Terrell Harris receive a standing ovation and get a chance to talk to the crowd, it's always a big moment.
Sure, Miami Heat columnist Ethan Skolnick didn't seem to appreciate it:
At some point, they're going to interview someone who played. I can feel it.— Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick) June 25, 2012
But hey, the big names still deservedly got more time to talk, and the little guys played a role, too, so it's only right they got some time in the spotlight.
Is it funny to you when the Big Three yell at Mario Chalmers?
More Jabs at Mario Chalmers
Just because the Heat are world champions doesn't mean the Big Three need to stop poking fun at their point guard.
Ethan Skolnick offers us what his favorite moment of the day was:
Best moment of day so far: the montage on the video screen of LeBron, Wade, Bosh screaming at Chalmers.— Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick) June 25, 2012
Chalmers is sort of the punching bag to the stars on this team, but that's only because he knows how to take it and realizes it will only make him better.
The parade gave us yet another chance to relive these funny moments. Well, OK, they are funny now that the Heat have prevailed. They probably weren't too funny at the time.
Dwyane Wade's Fashion Sense
Yes, the lense-less glasses that Dwyane Wade—along with other members of the Oklahoma City Thunder—made famous throughout the playoffs made another appearance.
Not only did Pat Riley, Erik Spoelstra and Micky Arison all don the glasses at some point, but Wade even put them on the championship trophy.
Hopefully, this is the last we'll see of this never-ending fashion joke.
But it didn't end there.
Wade also gave out three Hublot watches to Riley, Spoelstra and Arison. Those watches apparently go for $10,000 or more. Not a bad way to celebrate an NBA championship.
