The Miami Heat's copy of the "Rocky IV" soundtrack definitely got a workout on Tuesday.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, each wearing a different alternate uniform, waded through smoke and fake fire at an over-the-top photo shoot.
The shoot featured a shirtless James working out with chains and tires, presumably while humming "Hearts On Fire," and Wade walked ominously through artificial smoke when the director imagined "There's No Easy Way Out" blaring from the AmericanAirlines Arena speakers.
If you can take any of this even halfway seriously or you just love good montage fodder, check out the videos below . . .
