MIAMI - The back-to-back champs are getting ready for a return trip to the White House.

The Miami Heat will meet with President Obama on Tuesday afternoon.

It is the second straight year that Miami has celebrated a championship with the President.

Head Coach Erik Spoelstra said Monday, "It's a very special day.  You get to be a kid again.  You always think about going to the White House when you're a kid.  And in this profession, sometimes you get away from those thoughts.  But it's cool.   We're all looking forward to it."

For Dwyane Wade, it will be his third championship celebration.

He said, "It's an unbelievable honor to be able to have a moment with the President.  You understand how busy he is running this world we live in.   To take a moment out for us to come in, spend a day with our families, it's great."

LeBron James has had the opportunity to meet plenty of famous people, including President Obama.

After practice, LeBron was asked if there's still anyone who he'd really like to meet.

LeBron said, "Yeah, Jennifer Lawrence and Jennifer Aniston, my two Jennifers.  My wife knows about this.  It's not a secret, it's cool."
