The Miami Heat is on fire. After Tuesday night's epic overtime victory against the Atlanta Hawks, the Heat are still undefeated at home this season. While there have been some surprising rookie performances from role players so far this season, the large part of the Heat's success can be attributed to three key players: Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro. The trio has been so deep in the action, in fact, that they seem to be attempting to recreate their own version of a classic Hollywood action series called Riley's Angles.
Riley's Angels would be like the famous movie/series Charlie's Angels except with heaping doses of Heat culture and of course, Pat Riley.
Of course, the social team is just having a little fun with this & isn't actually trying to recreate the movie, but we know this trio has the chemistry to pull off the cinematic feat.
These three are hilarious. And yes, there is a brand new Charlie's Angels adaptation currently in theaters starring Kristen Stewart, directed by Elizabeth Banks. But we can not help but think that this trio would bring a little more heat to the screen. Every pun intended.
Let's start off with the man himself, Pat Riley, the man behind the scenes guiding the proverbial Angels. After all, this version of the movie would be named after him.
Apart from making mega offseason deals the likes of Alonzo Mourning, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James and Jimmy Butler, Riley was an extremely talented and successful coach. He is also a bonafide legend.
Never forget this video of Riley and Wade on a boat together somehwere in Saint-Tropez earlier this year.
This kind of moves lead us to grant complete and total faith in a man.
As far as Butler, Herro and Adebayo are concerned, do not just take our word for why they're more than qualified to fill these roles. Here's Chris Bosh's take:
"Best start in franchise history." This is a man who played with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James (arguably in their respective primes) and he was still unable to accomplish what these three guys have along with the rest of this year's squad. Real recognize real.
Comedy, talent, success: what do Riley's Angles not have?
Butler and company will look to continue their impressive start to the season as they welcome the high-flying Los Angeles Lakers in what is sure to be an all-out showdown in the American Airlines Arena Friday night.
