Before the Miami Heat kicked off their 2013-14 NBA campaign against the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night, the team raised the championship banner and received their rings as they prepare to start their quest for a three-peat.

LeBron James and company marched out to center court to receive their rings and they were met by a large reception from the crowd.

What do the rings of your 2013 NBA champions look like?

Here is a photo:

The NBA also released video of the James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh receiving their rings at midcourt:

Of course, then the Big Three needed to show off their rings:

But the most entertaining moment of the night came when LeBron leaned over to hug David Stern and accept his ring. (NEWSFLASH: LeBron is very tall. David Stern is not)

With the ceremonies behind us, we can now turn our attention towards a new season of NBA action.
