The Miami Heat‘s trio of stars, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, have been referred to as the “Heatles.” A reference to the Heat’s soaring bandwagon like popularity comparing them to “The Beatles” and their immense following their arrival in the United Stats.
The Heat have apparently embraced the name and wore shirts that said “The Heatles” in the style of The Beatles logo.

In the mean time, the Heat are preparing for a rematch with the San Antonio Spurs, their 2013 NBA Finals opponents.
“It brings back some memories, and it was one of the greatest finals the NBA has ever seen,” James said. “But we understand it is a regular season game, and not a finals game.”
They’ll have to do so with Wade coming off the bench though.
“I didn’t expect [to miss four games] but I did what was right and I’m playing now,” Wade said. “Hopefully I can get into a rhythm a little bit.”
