|Welcome to Miami, LeBron, As Heat Begin the Party
|MIAMI (AP) -- Dressed in his new Heat uniform, LeBron James took a look at his new home crowd and grinned.
The MVP has taken center stage in Miami.
With 13,000 fans chanting "Yes We Did!" amid an atmosphere more suited to an awards show or rock concert than a basketball game, the Miami Heat welcomed the NBA's newest trio of superstars Friday night for a celebration unlike just about any other in team history.
James, Heat favorite Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all arrived accompanied by plumes of smoke, lifted into the air on a forklift for their grand arrival.
Great fanfare. Great expectations.
