Miami Heat "Really Big Three" Statues Will Give You Nightmares

Miami's seen its share of homages to the Miami Heat trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh: murals, shout-outs in song lyrics, and a healthy portion of the "Stuff Miami Heat Fans Say" video.

But Prime Time Amusements is the only one guaranteed to haunt your dreams.

The arcade company's "theming" division has produced giant statues of the Three Kings, rising in height up to 20 ft tall. They're titled "The Really Big Three" (of course), and they're the perfect gift for the Heat fan who has everything, including really terrible taste in theme party decor.

LeBron towers to 18 feet.; Wade's hits the 16-foot mark; and Bosh bests them all at 20 feet tall.

But it's not the size of these statues that makes them so unsettling. It's the faces. Remember the California Raisins? This is not so far removed. Anyone who grew up in the '80s takes one look at these figures and imagines them dropping their basketballs to join in a creepy rendition of "Heard It Through the Grapevine." And Bosh in particular looks like's hungry for human flesh.

Still, if you're planning your kid's birthday party and trying to show up all the other parents at school, these statues are sure to do the trick. Better start saving up for little Johnny's couch sessions now, though.
