The Heatles

The Miami Heat trio of LeBron James(notes), Dwyane Wade(notes) and Chris Bosh(notes) has been known by many names over the past few months, some clever, some not. There's The Big Three, and Miami Thrice, and even the SuperFriends.

All these nicknames have been cooked up by fans and media members, not the members of the team itself ... you know, because giving yourself a nickname is usually frowned upon. But no one told that to LeBron, who informed everyone of a new one after Monday night's 96-82 victory in Charlotte. From Ira Winderman for the Sun-Sentinel:

James, on the Heat's ability to pack the house even in Charlotte, "We call ourselves the ‘Heatles' like the Beatles."

Cool name, guys, especially because "Rolling Heatones" doesn't really flow off the tongue. I can't wait to hear new singles like "I Want to Hold Your Early Termination Option" and "Sgt. Spoelstra's Lonely Hearts Club Band." Oh wait, I have another: "Riley Raccoon."
Saw this @ RealGm, thought it was hilarious:
