The Miami Heat received their 2013 NBA championship rings prior to their 107-95 win over the Chicago Bulls on Opening Night on Tuesday, spoiling the return of 2011 MVP Derrick Rose in the process.

The Miami Heat received their 2013 NBA championship rings prior to their 107-95 win over the Chicago Bulls on NBA Opening Night on Tuesday.

According to the league's official website, the rings "weighed nearly five ounces each and included 242 round-cut diamods, 1 1/2 carats of custom baguette-cut diamonds, and three black onyx stones totalling 10.3 carats." 

Heat guard Dwyane Wade and forward Udonis Haslem collected their third championship rings, as they are the only two players to have been present in the 2006, 2012 and 2013 title teams. 

As for team president Pat Riley, he was presented his ninth ring as a player, coach and team executive. 

For four-time NBA MVP LeBron James, it was his second. He spoke about the memorable moment to kick of Miami's 2013-14 season.

"To be able to relive last year one more time with our fans and our family, man, it's going to be a great moment. And then to begin another journey, that's what this league is all about. You forget about last year and you move on to the next one." 

In addition to the presentation of the rings, the Heat's 2012-13 NBA championship banner was also raised during the 17-minute ceremony.

Once the game commenced, NBA fans, particularly Bulls fans, were eager to witness the return of 2011 MVP Derrick Rose, who missed all of last season due to an ACL tear in his left knee. 

Rose didn't get the start that he wanted, as Heat guard Miami stole the ball from him the first time he touched the ball. The Heat, who wore home jerseys with their team name emblazoned in gold, got 17 points from James and 14 from forward Shane Battier on 4-for-4 shooting from three-point distance, built a commanding 54-33 lead in the first half and never looked back. 

The Bulls superstar was a shadow of his old self, finishing with just 12 points on 4-of-15 shooting. He was just 1-of-7 on threes. Forward Carlos Boozer was the game's top scorer with 31, while Jimmy Butler finished with 20 for the Bulls. 

Rose ruled out rust as the reason for his less-than-stellar season debut.

"I don't think it was rust. It was just me missing shots. I've had worse shooting nights than this. If anything, I'm going to have amnesia about it and we play in two days." 

For the game, Miami's reserves outscored Chicago's 42-26.

The Heat (1-0) will face the Philadelphia 76ers on the road on Oct. 30 while the Bulls (0-1) head back home to square off against the New York Knicks on Oct. 31.

Sixers too good at losing for NBA's liking?

Jul 30 2014 2:26pm CDT | Source: TrueHoop

Is the NBA cracking down on the Philadelphia 76ers' brash flaunting of awfulness? As the 2011 Miami Heat learned, a team can only be so subversive before the league starts changing rules on them. Miami felt the brunt of new CBA rules aimed to hinder “super teams” like the league-warping one they’d just created. Now the Sixers are feeling the NBA pinch at their super terrible teams. In a report written by Brian Wi ...
