Best team in the world!” one fan shouted. Others chanted raucously: “Let’s go Heat! Let’s go Heat!” The street celebration erupted in the closing seconds of the Heat’s 95-88 win over the San Antonio Spurs. It was a winner-takes-all final game that brought fans streaming into the area around the AmericanAirlines Arena to exchange high-fives, blow whistles and scream themselves hoarse.

(AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee) by Brian MahoneyAP Basketball Writer MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James will always remember his first championship. History will remember this one. The way the Heat won — or the way James wouldn’t let them lose — makes them one of the greats. A Game 6 comeback when it appeared to be over, then a stirring Game 7 victory over a proud opponent cemented a place with the NBA’s giants for this Miami team and its leader. “Last year when I was sitting up here with my first championship, I said it was the toughest thing I had ever done,” James said. “This year, I’ll tell last year he’s absolutely wrong. This was the toughest championship right here between the two.” And the San Antonio Spurs will always know it’s a title they let slip away.
