The Miami Heat celebrated its second straight NBA championship on Monday with a parade. Waving to cheering fans from an open-top double-decker bus, LeBron James almost lost his head when the parade drove under a low-hanging overpass.
Yahoo! Sports pointed out the near decapitation of the four-time MVP during Monday's parade. James, along with several others, had to duck quickly to avoid the 14'6" overhead bridge looming ahead. Nobody was injured, and James stood back up and looked over his shoulder with an expression of disbelief.
He regained composure, not even dropping the cigar hanging from his mouth, and the parade continued without a hitch.
Some of the highlights included Ray Allen spraying fans with a Super Soaker, Chris Bosh holding the trophy and James enjoying a cigar as thousands flooded the streets to cheer the NBA champions.
Miami won its second consecutive NBA title on Thursday with a Game 7 win over the San Antonio Spurs, 95-88. James won the Finals MVP award, and he posted 37 points and 12 rebounds. Dwyane Wade added 23 points and 10 rebounds, winning his third NBA championship.
