My last post about the Miami Heat got me thinking. For as much publicity as Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, and LeBron James have gotten since they began playing together, we are no closer to solving the mystery of collective nickname. “Miami Thrice” has been tossed around, and though I believe it is the most creative and appropriate of the names I’ve heard, it has not caught on all that well. “The Heatles” was the moniker LeBron James’ came up with. But though it’s a nice homage to The Beatles, the name has not taken America by storm in the same fashion as its namesake. “The Big Three” is such a weak attempt at a nickname I won’t bother discussing it.
But, the fact is we have a crisis in Miami. 2 mega-superstars, 1 sorta-superstar, and 0 established nicknames.
Do this nation a service and think of something to call these three. Please send your suggestions to the Miami Heat front office at:
