After a franchise-record 66 wins, a 27-game winning streak, and a second straight championship, the Miami Heat wrapped up a historic season Monday inside the American Airlines Arena.

Outside, tens of thousands of fans celebrated.

“We feel like Miami parties better than any city in the world,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra.

And inside, the team talked about family, hard work, and history.

“It really is about respect,” said team president Pat Riley. “And this is what players, I think, ultimately play for. You don’t merely want to be considered the best of the best in anything you do. You want to be considered the only ones who do what you do. You separate yourselves from the pack. And I I don't think there’s any doubt they’ve separated themselves from the pack this year. And their names are going to be respected and honored.”

The team was indeed honored, by the Miami City Commission and the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners.

Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado had a bold prediction for the NBA champions.

“Next year,” he said, “Repeat! Repeat!”
