    Rank the top-5 big threes so far

    Big threes have been the key for seven of the last 10 NBA champions, and this year is looking the same (Miami, Oklahoma City, San Antonio), unless a team like Los Angeles or Indiana pulls it out.
    Rank your top-five big threes so far. Some teams, such as the Clippers, Blazers, Pacers, Suns or even Spurs, might be too balanced right now to qualify for this top five, even though they're some of the best teams in the league. Sacramento, has a fairly productive big three, even if the overall team still sucks. Make an argument for your choices if they aren't fairly obvious.
    Here are mine:

    1. Miami (LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade)
    2. Thunder (Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka)
    3. Houston (James Harden, Dwight Howard, Chandler Parsons)
    4. Golden State (Stephen Curry, David Lee and Klay Thompson)
    5. San Antonio (Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili)

    Although it's a more balanced team, I still included San Antonio with it's old guard pun intended. Ginobili, on a per-minute basis, is still the third-biggest cog in his team's wheel. And he's symbolically the third most important guy in San Antonio.

    Klay Thompson???? Bogut is better Klay. Klay is one of the most overrated players in the league.

    Your list is pretty spot on other than that I reckon.

    more like Steph Curry, Andre Igoudala, and Andrew Bogut. I love the Phoenix big 3. But Nobody beats Miami's big 3 except maybe OKC next year

    Lol. I just give him the love cause he's been huge for us in a lot of games this season. Overall he's had a lot more good games than bad games and even when he has bad games he tries to get to the rim and do the extra hustle(AT TIMES). He just happens to have cold nights.

    I agree with this list. The homer in me wishes to put the Rockets over the Clippers, but L.A.'s duo right now is better than Houston's, even if I would give Parsons an edge over Jordan.

    Not gonna lie, team success had a lot of impact on my list, and the Rockets should be above them on my list going by my criteria. I just chose the clips big 3 over them because I do think they have the 2 best players out of both teams big 3 IMO. I do agree with you that Parsons>Jordan tho. I'd say clips and rockets are interchangeable, there's no wrong answer.

    I'm glad that despite you being a rocket's fan you are impartial. respect.

    Impact wise Lee and Iggy are an interesting argument - with Bogut ahead of both - but Klay is clearly below them all. If he's thought of in this light of a "big three" argument by a decent amount of fans around the league (not sure if he is or not), then yes, definitely majorly overrated at the moment.

    Phoenix has no big three, although it's made a living with two talented guards and a lot of decent, high0energy role players. It's one of those balanced teams I mentioned.

    I stand corrected. Bogut should be in that big three, although Houston is still above Golden State after that switch.

    I made a mistake not including Bogut over Thompson, but Lee definitely has more of an impact than Igoudala. He puts up bigger numbers, has a significantly higher PER and win share amount and is easily the second best player on the team. He even has more defensive win shares than Igoudala, who's also played 15 percent less of the season.
