MIAMI - Most of the Heat players go into hiding during the post season. That means, no tweeting, facebooking, or blogging.

But now that the season is over and the Heat are the champs again, their accounts are exploding.

Shane Battier is getting a lot of attention after his standout performance in game seven. He hit 6 of 8 three pointers and contributed 18 points in 28 minutes. That led him to set the NBA record for most triples made during a game 7 of the NBA finals. Afterwards, Battier took to Twitter, sending out this tweet: "I was so bad for the last month that even my 5 year old was trying to pump me up. The 'Ribeye' of a championship beats the hell out of turd sandwiches. Crass yes, obvious yes, but true."

Since winning his 3rd NBA title, Dwyane Wade has changed his Twitter handle from Way of Wade to Three! Local 10 is thinking it's in honor of those 3 NBA Championships for the Heat, and his number, 3.

Chris Bosh also returned to Twitter. On Saturday morning, he tweeted a picture from inside the Heat's party at Bamboo Nightclub with the caption "The celebration has begun!"

The last we heard from LeBron James on Twitter before the playoffs was when he tweeted: "Zero Dark Thirty-6 Activated! I'm gone."

But he's gone no more! After the big win, the King posted a video on Instagram, saying "Man, I don't know what to say, I'm a champion, two time, two rings."

It seems James let it all sink in. He posted a picture a short time later, tweeting: "It's just so surreal to me. I just can't believe it! I'm so blessed and humbled to be able to inspire people most importantly the youth!"
