WASHINGTON
President Barack Obama has congratulated the NBA champion Miami Heat for showing the “heart and determination” it takes to sit atop the league.

It was a return visit to the White House for the team on Tuesday, in honor of its second straight NBA title.

During an East Room ceremony, Obama also praised the team’s off-court actions. Before arriving at the White House, the players visited with wounded service members recuperating at an area military hospital. Obama says it’s an example of the charitable work the players do year-round.

The Heat won its third NBA championship overall last year by topping the San Antonio Spurs in a championship series that went the full seven games.

The team also received White House honors last January for its 2012 championship.
