Heat to unveil banner honoring LeBron's Olympic run


Posted Nov 2, 2012 1:56 PM

MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James is getting another banner.

To commemorate James' role in helping the U.S. men's basketball team win gold at this past summer's London Olympics, the Miami Heat will unveil a banner in his honor Saturday before they play the Denver Nuggets.

It will be displayed alongside three others for players who won Olympic gold as members of the Heat - Dwyane Wade, Alonzo Mourning and Tim Hardaway.

Miami raised its NBA title banner to the rafters before the season-opening win over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

The Heat are also honoring two other Olympians with South Florida ties on Saturday. Danell Leyva, who won a bronze medal in the men's gymnastics all-around in London, will attend the game, as will Paralympic swimming gold-medalist Justin Zook.
