Superfriends vs Flamingos

A great number of nicknames for the trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh have been suggested since The Decision. There were the "Bigger 3," "The Superteam," "The Sixpeat," and "LOOK AT US FOR WE CRAVE YOUR ATTENTION" (okay, I made the last one up).
The most prominent nickname seems to be "Superfriends" which while neat, doesn't accurately portray the situation. I get the comic book reference, but aren't they just regular friends? Would LeBron pick Chris Bosh up from the airport or help Dwyane Wade move? Would Chris Bosh do anything for the other two if his camera crew weren't present? No.

My twitter bro, @AllThatAmar (of SLC Dunk) coined the term "The Three Flamingos" on decision night. Whether an allusion to the flamboyant bird/lawn-ornament or the R&B group most remembered for breaking-up repeatedly, I feel it is appropriate.

You decide or suggest something new.


  1. A good nickname? Tres Putas :)

  2. I still stand with "Powerpuff boys".
    Dwyane Wade as Blossom.
    Lebron James as Buttercup
    Chris Bosh as Bubbles.


    Professor as Spoelstra

  3. I'm cool with Powerpuff Boys, but the characters are all wrong - Bosh can't be the super cute one; he'd totally be Buttercup.

  4. I just might have to make a compilation based on the last image.
