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:

This was a hot topic on our boards yesterday and still is right now. I liked it at first, but some more thinking it doesn't fit. Maybe they can earn that nickname several years and championships later.

Right now I like Run DLC. Another one I heard was Young Money, but I don't like that because I don't like Young Money.

LMAOOOO LBJ looks the funniest. Looks like such a douchebag.

Pat Riley actually looks normal.

But MIA still doesn't have the top attendance average in the league. The Bulls do, according to RealGM.

I know that I would chose to watch a CHI play, all other factors being equal.

Lebron should say that, and then see if his Jersey's get burned. Oh wait...

Acie 01-06-2011 11:23 AM

Wade looks cool with that do.

They should have gone with Miller instead of Riley.

or maybe z

They are so full of them selves. I hope they crash and burn.,
I feel like an angry ex-girlfriend

Maybe they should've made Spolestra into George Martin and Riley into Brian Epstien.

If they are the Heatles, can we be the RapDoors?

Who gets to be Jim?

It ain't even original according to this site:


Update! An anonymous commenter correctly pointed out that Kevin Garnett dubbed the Celtics "The Ceatles" back in 2007 -- "We're the Ceatles...Ceatles...like the Beatles? We the Ceatles. And I'm Paul!" -- so LeBron wasn't even being original.

Another update! A different anonymous commenter directed me to The Heat Index, which provided a link to this Tweet from SI.com's Chris Mannix:

Here's why LBJ's "Heatles" line rang a bell. In '06 Drew Gooden told me DG, LBJ & Damon Jones called themselves "The Cleatles." Not kidding.

Oh my!

Well done, Acie. Seriously.

This made my night. :yeah:

Acie 01-06-2011 11:21 PM

Thanks. :)

I was going to do the LA Woman cover, but it would've took me all night.
