    It should be noted that this will be a homecoming of sorts for Thunder star Kevin Durant.

    Last year, Durant purchased a home at 900 Biscayne, a short one block walk to the Heat’s American Airlines Arena: http://www.bizjournals.com/southflorida/blog/2011/05/nba-leading-scorer-durant-buys-miami.html

    Unless Miami steps it’s game up, OKC Thunder is a very dangerous team.

    Based on the values that Forbes is using, Miami would probably be closing in on or overtaking the Bulls as the third most valuable NBA team behind the Knicks and Lakers.

    So the reason that they held the parade on Monday instead of Saturday or Sunday is because Micky Arison did not want people going on cruises to be blocked. What a joke! So hundreds of thousands of workers miss work because of them.
