LeBron James and James Jones of the Miami Heat will be honored Saturday night at the 2014 Reid & Fiorentino Call of the Game Dinner.

This is the first time that James will be accepting an award in-person in Miami according to a press release for the dinner.

Handing the "Don Shula Sports Legend Award" to James will be the legendary former head coach of the Miami Dolphins himself. The award recognizes James' dedication on the court as well as his part in the Lebron James Family Foundation.

Jones will take home the "Ted Arison Community Service Award" for his work in the South Florida community. In the past, fellow Heat names such as Dwyane Wade, Alonzo Mourning and Pat Riley have won this award.

The emcee for the night will be Wade's fiancée and Hollywood actress Gabrielle Union.

The dinner which is named after the Miami Heat's TV broadcasters Eric Reid and Tony Fiorentino benefits local charities. Those who benefit from it include Lauren’s Kids which is designed to raise awareness about sexually abused children, and the Dade Schools Athletic Foundation.

The dinner will take place from 6:30 - 10:30 p.m. on March 15th at the Seminole Hard Rock & Casino.
