Fresh off their preseason victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night, the Miami Heat is busy today shooting footage for its pregame introductions.
And, as it has always been, it looks like it's going to be filled with a lot of smoke, a lot of screaming, and a lot of coolness.
In other words, it's going to be badass.
Someone on the production staff has been shooting behind-the-scenes footage of it all and then posting the videos on the team's Instagram.
LeBron working out with ropes and tossing truck tires in a blazing building with a giant-ass chain around his neck? Seems about right.
D-Wade. Smoke. Awesomeness.
Chris Bosh doesn't seem very enthusiastic. Maybe he's saving the intensity for the end of the scene. Like a velociraptor wail or something.
The final product should be awesome, as it always is.
This -- along with sound effects and supercool music and fire -- will be what opposing teams will be met with when they enter the American Airlines Arena to play the Heat.
That and three HUGE CHAMPIONSHIP BANNERS DECLARING THE HEAT'S DOMINANCE OVER THEIR STUPID FACES.
