Which Big 3 will go down as the best combo in NBA history?

1. Bucks: Ray Allen, Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson, Sam Cassell

2. Celtics: Kevin "ANYTHINGISPOSSIBLE" Garnett, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce

3. Heat: LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh

Is this a joke?

Gimme the Heat...

If KG, Ray and PP were together when they were in their mid twenties and all had 6 year deals it may have been close.

Exactly what I thought... They haven't played a game yet, so therefor, I'll take the Celtics' Big 3. The have proved to be A TEAM and not just big NAMES. Not saying that Lebron and Wade.. aaah and Bosh :facepalm:... are juste big names, but until they play a game together, I'll take Boston's Big 3

but anyway I'd roll with Kobe, Gasol, and Ron Ron. Perfect balance of offense and defense....

Jordan, Pippen, Rodman should be over that bucks 3. They don't belong there.

Of the 3, I'd give it to the Heat. If the Celtics had this team years ago, I might consider them.

Regardless, the Heat need to play a year before really being able to crown anyone.

yes, for the record; this was meant to be a joke.....
i suppose we should include Kobe, Bynum & Gasol. But I think if you include them you need to include Jordan + Pippen + ? no? Bynum really hasn't been a big star. He's been a shell of himself due to injury. I think the point of arguement in comparing Big 3's is having 3 elite stars at the time signed together.

when PP, KG & Ray Allen signed together it was a big deal, same for the Heat.
and YES, we are only discussing modern basketball.

ok for all of you who are even considering the 3 idiots of miami, they first need to play together!! also the bucks are garbage and the only time they were ever good was when they had oscar robertson and lew alcindor (a.k.a. kareem abdul jabar)! also i have yet to see mention of bird parish and mchale who are the original big 3 and the best...granted the lakers won more championships in the 80's but i don think they ever had a big 3, they were magic and kareem, worthy is an all time though

Yes but Pippen did lead the Bulls to within 1 game of the finals the year Jordan retired. IMO he was way more than a role player. If given the chance I think he could of been "the man" on any team in his prime. As for big 3's that we're talking about I would put RunTMC up there. Those 3 at Golden State were devastating & don't get enough credit. At least way ahead of the Bucks.

I've seen Pippen take over games. He was an MVP candidate the year Jordan first retired, and most fans thought the Bulls would be in the lottery without MJ and Pippen got them to a game 7 against a heavily favoured Knicks team. Pippen IS a proven leader.

As for carrying a team, or a game, I havent seen Bosh do it myself to be honest. I remember the New Jersey/Toronto series, he was working hard, but he could take over the game. I love the guy, but there is a reason Toronot hasnt been out of the first round with him and have had a hard time even making the playoffs with him. Part of it is the players around him, but part of it is Bosh's inability to be the kind of momentum changer in a game that Pippen, Jordan AND Rodman all were. Rodman would come up with huge defensive stops and big time offensive boards, and Jordan and Pippen came up with game changing defensive plays and while both were good passers, Pippen just knew how to swing the ball to the open guy and Jordan just knew how to get point when they needed it (though the officials were generous with MJ and Pippen).

Why do you even have the trio of Ray Allen, Glenn Robinson and Sam Cassell in there? They never won a championship.
The common wisdom is that the NBA only gets more competitive with time. Condering that LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade are three of the best players in today's NBA (and Kobe's getting somewhat old), they will most likely be the best trio.

P.S.: Why not pick a trio of Celtics before the one-and-done Garnett dynasty?

This is one of the more ridiculous questions I've seen. It's easily the Heat. On that list of players, Garnett was the only player that could have been ever considered a top 3 player when in his prime. But he joined up with Pierce and Allen later.

Wade and Lebron are easily considered top 3 players by practically everyone.

ok... i cant stand when people say this crap about pippen... due was voted top 50 of all time... he was the best on ball defender in the nba... when jordan retired the first time he led virtually the same bulls team minus jordan to the 3rd round of the playoffs... after jordan retired a second time he took a rockets team that was pretty washed up to the 2nd round (that shouldnt have happened), and then took the blazers to the 3rd round of the playoffs... dude was legit. i think people dont give him enough credit cuz he played with the greatest. everyone always says he was just good and nothing more... those people dont know what they are talking about...

What kind of role player averages about 20ppg, 7rpg, and 6apg and was the best defensive player in the league during those championship years. And these numbers were significantly elevated in the playoffs. Not to mention, he took the Bulls to the finals without Jordan. Scottie Pippen would've been the go to guy on any other team if he wasn't playing next to the greatest player to ever play. He actually doesn't get enough credit if you ask me.

A "big 3" cannot form a combo...

combo is short for combination. 3 can form a combination, that is correct. i'm going to lean on my friend wikipedia for some further explanation on the subject:

In combinatorial mathematics, a k-combination of a finite set S is a subset of k distinct elements of S. Specifying a subset does not arrange them in a particular order; by contrast, producing the k distinct elements in a specific order defines a sequence without repetition, also called k-permutation (but which is not a permutation of S in the usual sense of that term). As an example, a poker hand can be described as a 5-combination of cards from a 52-card deck: the 5 cards of the hand are all distinct, and the order of the cards in the hand does not matter.

And as said before, the Heat haven't proved anything except they have talent. Whether or not that will become talent and chemistry once the stress of the regular season comes, only time will tell.

And they better hope they start the season off fantastically, otherwise, the doubt will come in, people will be saying they were overhyped, and things will begin to self destruct in Miami.

there is just no way this team is going to be overhyped. they are going to the finals. they don't even need to lace them up. LeBron + Wade + Bosh + Mikey Miller + Haslem + Ilgauskus. they don't even need any other players. they should just let Glenn Rice suit up to relive the glory days. Only team that has a shot is the Lakers; Bynum better get healthy.
