With Chris Bosh holding the NBA championship trophy and LeBron James standing atop a double-decker bus with a cigar in his mouth, the Heat began making their way through a downtown Miami route late Monday morning. It's the second straight year the Heat have celebrated with a parade, and a rally inside the team's home arena was scheduled for later Monday afternoon.

Hundreds of thousands of fans were expected along the parade route. Some fans began arriving before sunrise Monday, and traffic into downtown was extremely heavy as people hoped to get close enough for a glimpse of the celebration.

Miami won the third NBA title in franchise history by topping the San Antonio Spurs in this year's finals.
