Miami Heat James, Wade celebrate with pizza onstage next to Drake [VIDEO]

June 21 (UPI) -- After Miami's re-Heat on Thursday, the team decided to forego the traditional LIV nightclub in favor of a better kind of party -- a pizza party.

The team headed to Miami Beach hotspot Club Story to celebrate their second-straight title.

At Story, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh joined rapper Drake on stage. Later in the evening, James ordered a pizza and washed it down with Champagne while the "Best I Ever Had" singer took the mic next to him.

Wade and James are close friends with Drake but that didn't get him into the post-game Champagne party in the locker room. Drake tried to get into the locker room to celebrate the back-to-back championships, but was turned away at the door by security.

Wade wore a "#3FORWADE" shirt, which would have collected dust had the team not won last night, and brought girlfriend Gabrielle Union. The crew stayed out until 5:30 a.m., drinking 115 bottles of Dom Perignon Luminous label.

The party was over for Wade at 6:17 a.m, when he tweeted a picture of the sunrise.


Unexpected hero Shane Battier celebrated on his own, going to Foxhole club and following up with a Grand Slam breakfast at Denny's.


The team kept it low-key this year, compared to last year's bash, which had carbon dioxide guns, confetti and a 15-liter Ace of Spades bottle of Champagne.

Last year's party had James wearing a shirt with a picture of himself as a vampire on it. The team sang alongside Redfoo from LMFAO in a surprise performance at LIV, where they racked up a $200,000 bar tab.
