We all know how big of a fan of basketball our president is. To show off just how much he loves it, he invited the National Champions, Miami Heat, to join him at the white house. All of the players attended with suit and tie, but they also took their basketball shoes just incase the commander in chief wanted a little pickup match.

MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Heat will be in suits and ties when they visit the White House on Monday. Unless, of course, someone invites them to play some ball.

After all, President Barack Obama does enjoy some pickup games.

"Everybody will bring their shoes - just in case," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.

The basketball-fan-in-chief will be providing his personal congratulations to the Heat on Monday, when the team picks up one of the traditional perks of winning a championship. Miami will fly to Washington after playing in Boston on Sunday night, then remain in the city for parts of two days before heading back north for a game in Brooklyn on Wednesday night.
