(Miami, FL) -- The Miami Heat will celebrate their second straight NBA championship with a victory parade today. Hundreds of thousands of fans are expected to line the streets of downtown as players and coaches pass by. Spectators will not be allowed to bring backpacks as a security measure after the Boston Marathon bombings. The parade will be followed by a special event for season ticket holders at AmericanAirlines Arena. The Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs to capture the third NBA title in franchise history.
