I got this idea from a person asking Chad ford this question on his chat

Ford said he would take Dwight Howard, Durrant, and CP3.

I would probably do the same But I might take rose over cp3 for the fact that rose is a little younger and I'm thinking long term.

So who would your big 3 be? you have no cap restrictions and try and factor age and that this would be for the long haul.

he can pass the ball and can get to the rim anytime. with a out side shooter like durrant and someone as dominate as howard is underneath the rim for rose to dump the ball off to, I think it would be unstoppable.

I do think Ford took the most obvious choice. A great passing PG, who can defend and create with the best of them. A wing scorer who is great with the ball in his hands, but can feed off of a great PG too. And then Dwight...obviously.

A PG/wing/big combo is the only right answer. The wing has to be able to play equally as effective with and without the ball to be successful with a star PG and center.

I almost think a Paul, Dirk, Dwight lineup would be the best. Miami just has me scared that two many playmakers who need the ball in their hands is bad, which is why Durant scares me, even with a guy as unselfish as Paul. For some reason I just think Dirk would do more damage with an elite PG.

come on, offer a non-biased big 3...lol. Rose with Durant & Howard? Why? Much better off with a better outside shooting PG and playmaker like D-Will.

My big 3 would be

D-will (I like CP3 better but he's had injury problems before)
Howard (best big man in the league hands down
Durant

I'd probably put Dirk as my #3 because he would open the floor so much but he's too old if we're factoring age.

Really though if we are goign long term, I think CP3/Griffin/Dwight would be sick..CP3/BG pick and roll all day, and Dwight would be able to anchor the defense and not have to worry about offense alot. Plus if Paul can turn Chandler into a guy that averaged 12 ppg or so that one year..I can't imagine what he cold do with one of those guys.

For a big, I guess the best option is Howard. You'd need a guy to get them the ball and facilitate, in which case pure point guard has to go to CP3. Now...that xfactor guy is where it gets tricky. I would need a guy who can make a shot while twisting in the air...for those last minute buckets. Kobe fits that bill, as does Wade. Unfortunately, Kobe is much older now and Wade is having an off year.

LBJ is the best player in the league, but if you are going to pair him with someone it needs to be someone that compliments him. Another guy who is the main ball handler like Paul doesn't. LBJ/Dirk/Howard would be the 3 I would pair with him.

Man listen. I know the 3 should look like:
true point guard - scorer (preferably with good jumpshot) - defensive big

But...
Making that list I thought about a lot of things.
1. This 3 are both great on offence and defence (Durant or Dirk doesn't)
2. Chris Paul doesn't need to score much like Dwyane Wade does leaving scoring duties to LeBron.
3. This 3 will have heck a lot of fouls on them.
4. Having LeBron driving to the rim and Howard rebounding the ball makes it deadly.
5. Besides that both Chris Paul and LeBron can play pick and rolls with Dwight all day long, due to their great passing abilities.
6. This is prolly the fastest 3 you can have on the court. Dirk or Durant will slow it down.
7. Athletic abilities
People forget how dominant LeBron is and how effective he is on both sides of the court. Heck he is reigning 2 time mvp.
By far this is the best 3 you can make IMO.

The thing that doesn't make it optimal is that I am not sure if Lebron can play with a good pg or a true pg, I think that Lebron plays better when you surround him by shooters and athletic bigs.

Winner.

You need a point guard who is happy to distribute, not be the star, and do what is necessary to get his team wins. Deron demonstrated going back to Illinois that he can work with other scorers and make his contributions in many ways. Dwight is a no brainer based on his rebounding, athleticism, defense, and lack of a need to have the ball in his hands. Durant is a scoring machine and doesn't feel compelled to bring it up the floor like some other leading scorers.

I can't think of anyone I would sub in here (though I can fully understand someone putting in CP3 ahead of DWill).

Yep, i share the same thoughts. Lebron is best when he is completely dominating the ball. You surround him with good shooters and a good PnR big and you should be fine. That's why Cleveland brought in Mo Williams, he was consistently near the top of the league at making open shots when he was in Milwaukee.

Yea obviously this is the ultimate(with CP3), either works though... You explained it too, good post. I think you can also sub in Melo for Durant if you want due to his post game and shooting to go along with him not needing the ball in his hands to be effective.

I don't follow you at all here. How is it hate to think that if you were putting together a top-3 you wouldn't include Lebron, even if you think he is the best?

If I was hosting a 1 on 1 tournament I would take Lebron over everybody for sure. 2 on 2 I take Lebron and Dwight and am laughing. But if I am building an NBA team around three guys, then I want to have guys that are truly complementary with one another and that I think will work well as part of a team. LeBron might, but thus far it is very debatable as to whether he can work well with other players who need/want the ball in their hands. CP3 and LeBron might have serious conflicts. Conflicts that I don't think Durant would have with CP3 or DWill. I don't see it as LeBron hate so much as a realistic assessment of what he has shown thus far.

Rose, Durant, Howard(the best combo)

Great PG with the ability to penetrate and find open man plus has the ability to score when needed and as he gets older will become a better outside shooter.

One of the top scorers in the league and he's not even 22 yet still has a long ways to go to be the player that he wants to be when the game is on the line he is great when the ball in his hands.

The best big man in the league and still hasn't hit his prime he is the DPOY and the most dominant big man in the league. This is the best big three you could put together probably better then the big 3 in Miami.

Yea that was downright embarrassing... What did Lopez go 2-15, missing his first 11 shots or something like that... I think that the previous poster is failing to realize that you don't need 3 guys commanding the ball, Dwight gets 20 a game on like 10 shots, that means that the rest of your guys (Durant, Lebron, CP3, DWill, Etc.) will still get theirs and don't have to play as hard on defense because of Dwight's presence.

Anyone who says someone other than DH isn't fully understanding how winning in the NBA is conducted.

Can't say I did. Haven't really seen Dwight play much this year to be honest. Just going by what I saw of him from previous years. To me he has always seemed to have a poor offensive post game. He just gets by on his pure athletic gifts. I think that by his 6th or 7th year in the league, whichever it is, he should have more moves in the low post than he does. Granted he is always guarded by Perk or Davis (who is actually a decent post defender due to his quick feet) when I watch him play.

But if he did beast on Lopez it still doesn't change my opinion. I've always liked the way Lopez plays.

If Howard, has improved this year dramatically, I wouldn't have noticed. Don't watch many teams besides whoever is playing the C's.

There is no denying that Dwight is the best center in the league. I just like a center on my team who can knock down the 15 footer consistently. Really opens up the floor for players who like to get to the rim. i.e. Rondo and Durant who were my other two.

If you look at the Defensive rating (estimation of points allowed per 100 possessions) Dwights is 99 while Brook's is 109. That isn't that much of a difference in terms of 100 possessions. But yes, you're right, Dwight is an amazing defender.

I'm just thinking long term and trying to stay away from picks that all look the same. So for me, I'm just going by who I think would work well together and could compete for years down the road.

If you would take Tyreke and Wall over Rose, well that's just being biased. I've noticed a large quantity of your posts are anti-Bulls/anit-Rose so no surprise.

Rose vs Rondo/Westbrook...if you need you're PG to be able to shoot from the outside, you go with Rose. (Anyone picking Lebron and Dwight should take Rose over Rondo/Westrbrook)

CP3 and Deron can't cut up defenses quite like Rose, so if you have outside scorers like Dirk/Durant, Rose might not be the better player but would be the better fit.

The average Defensive rating this season is 106.8. Brook is below average while Dwight is well above average. It might not seem like a significant difference when you compare 109 to 99 but really that's a huge difference.

You are spot on with DH, beyond everything else he does on the defensive end; he also meshes well with any of the top players period. Not to mention that by just being on the floor he changes the dynamics of the game completely.

Also, I'm not really a Rose fan, but I do think he is one of the most talented players in the NBA, not just pgs, I'm just not sold on him being a guy that can elevate everyone around him or get the best out of everyone on his team. I think that DWill, CP3, Rondo, Westbrook, and Nash can all do that better than him. Not knocking his talent, just his ability to make others better and I'm not going by assists(because they are arbitrary to my point), but I do agree with most of your posts.

Also, I'm not really a Rose fan, but I do think he is one of the most talented players in the NBA, not just pgs, I'm just not sold on him being a guy that can elevate everyone around him or get the best out of everyone on his team. I think that DWill, CP3, Rondo, Westbrook, and Nash can all do that better than him. Not knocking his talent, just his ability to make others better and I'm not going by assists(because they are arbitrary to my point), but I do agree with most of your posts.


I don't disagree that Rose isn't able to elevate his teammates at the level Deron/CP3/Nash can.

That said, if you have two guys like Dwight and Durant, how much can anyone really elevate their games?

People give CP3 credit for elevating David West's game or Tyson Chandler's game but those guys aren't nearly as talented as Dwight, so they need someone to create all of their shots.


I didn't take Rose in my trio, I want a PG that can shoot the 3 and doesn't need to dominate the ball so I chose Curry because I think he's a great 3rd option next to Durant and Howard but still able to takeover a game if needed.

That team would have trouble scoring 90 points a night.

they wouldn't have to with that defense. Defense wins championships. plus that's just the big 3, you could get a decent scorer to help.

The thing that doesn't make it optimal is that I am not sure if Lebron can play with a good pg or a true pg, I think that Lebron plays better when you surround him by shooters and athletic bigs.

Agreed, Lebron needs teh ball in his hands to score. He doesn't want to run off screens and shoot jumpers. He wants to be the guy with teh ball, so I actually think a Lebron, Dwight, and Steph Curry setup might be ideal. I know Steph isn't a top 10 player in teh league, but I think he compliments Lebron well. Steph is comfortable running around without the ball adn coming off screens. He's at his best shooting jumpers. This opens things up for Lebron to do his thing while Curry floats around and comes off screens for open jumpers. Obviously pretty much everyone agrees Dwight the center.

he can pass the ball and can get to the rim anytime. with a out side shooter like durrant and someone as dominate as howard is underneath the rim for rose to dump the ball off to, I think it would be unstoppable.

Im sure he can, Im just saying he cant do it better than CP3. Nobody keeps his dribble alive in a crowd as well as him. Rose's ability to get to the rim is overrated. Nobody who takes as many jumpers as he does gets to the rim anytime he wants. If so then explain why he chooses not to.

I do think Ford took the most obvious choice. A great passing PG, who can defend and create with the best of them. A wing scorer who is great with the ball in his hands, but can feed off of a great PG too. And then Dwight...obviously.

A PG/wing/big combo is the only right answer. The wing has to be able to play equally as effective with and without the ball to be successful with a star PG and center.

I almost think a Paul, Dirk, Dwight lineup would be the best. Miami just has me scared that two many playmakers who need the ball in their hands is bad, which is why Durant scares me, even with a guy as unselfish as Paul. For some reason I just think Dirk would do more damage with an elite PG.

Agreed

Rose is a tough pick to choose for me because he doesn't play as good defense as the other guards. Not including potential his best fit to me is rose, pierce, gasol. He's pickin up on his trey ball tho so watch out.

I couldn't put rondo on any big three cuz of his inability to hit free throws. Dude is top 3-5 guard no doubt but if you countin jus three players, i'm scared he'd miss the important ones.

Completely offtopic, but the video that you linked in your sig is completely ridiculous. If you think that Rondo lacks a scoring instinct, you are false. There was miscommunication on that play as it was supposed to be an alley-oop. Now I know you're going to say that Rondo should have taken the lay-up and all, but theres a reason why Rondo is called a pass-first point guard not a shoot-first point guard.


Anyways, if I were to construct my own big 3....

Deron Williams - A distributor who can also shoot lights out
Dwight Howard - A powerful center playing with an elite PG = win
Dirk Nowitzki - A big man who can knock down J's and rebound and space the floor. Despite getting up there in age, he still shows that he can be an elite offensive player.

I would love to hear you out on why it is false. You dont need to be a score/pass first PG to know the right play. That miscommunication was completely on Rondo. Its called a predetermined pass, Rondo overpasses to a fault at times, its something the coaching staff and players have brought to his attention. He needs to be more selfish because teams are playing him for the pass. It was evident here, in this situation he should have taken an extra dribble to become a threat worthy of attention.

I realize that he should have taken the shot, but being unselfish and not having a scoring instinct are completely unrelated. You can be the most selfish player and not have a scoring instinct. Just because he is not selfish does not qualify Rondo as a player who does not have scoring instinct. Yes, I see Rondo passing up more shots with each game that passes by, but to say that he doesn't have scoring instinct is preposterous.

For example:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HY1nIFbs6NY

That's no sign of scoring instinct, huh?

Ok: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RIhNb-Lezk&feature=related

With the addition of Shaq, Rondo has looked to score less and pass more. According to ESPN, Rondo averages 10 shots per game and makes 5 of those shots (5.1-10.1 actual stats compared to average 5.7-11.2). At the same time, his FG% rose from 50.8% to 51.1% (2009). OK, .3% increase might not be such a lengthy rise, but it is still higher than last season so far, no? The addition of Shaq and a healthy KG allows Rondo to become more of a distributor than he ever was. Now saying Rondo lacks scoring instinct because of that one play is not fair, because every player makes mistakes. Also, Rondo's game last night demonstrated that he can become aggressive when he wants to. Sure it was the Cavs, but he still played aggressively.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-A7DceaonuA&feature=related

What about that video? No scoring instinct there either?

Nobody is spiteful and it seems you have set the bar pretty low for what is considered a working combo of Lebron/Wade and not. Individually, Lebron has had great success in Cleveland and has propelled that team to 60 wins seasons and a Finals appearance. If they don't reach that standard in Miami with this duo or trio, than I believe it's safe to say the experiment is a failure.

It's already obvious them playing .500 ball and getting bounced out in the first round would be an epic failure. To me, Lebron has to find more success in Miami than he has in Cleveland, otherwise people would say he made the wrong choice by jumping ship and escaping to what he perceived would be a easier route to a ring for him.

Honestly, I think that having a "Big 3" of superstars doesn't work. A great team needs 1 guy to be "the man" and the rest of the guys willing to accept supporting roles. That is why Lebron with a bunch of 2nd tier guys in Cleveland >>>>>>> Miami's Big 3 of Superstars

I'm good with Kobe + Pau + Bynum (or Odom)

Deron, Dirk and Dwight- A pg who can great passer, great scorer and good defender... Dirk will provide the range and length that will clear the middle for Dwight to dominate... What's good about this big 3 is ego's won't clash...

I would make Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Dwight Howard my big three. The scary thing is that it could happen, if Orlando doesn't start doing more than shoot jumpers. For the Thunder right now, though, I'd say trade Jeff Green in a package for Josh Smith, then sign a lower-cost, defensive-minded center.

You obviously know nothing about the Magic or how free agency works... Let's get a few things out of the way... No superstar is leaving FL (no tax, Orlando(will pay the luxury tax) to go to OKC. It is just a fact, why do you think Lebron left Cleveland??? Because it's Cleveland, same reason why Westbrook and Durant could leave later in their careers(not saying they will) Not to mention that the Thunder will not be able to afford Durant, DH, and Westbrook and don't tell me about Miami. If anything those 2 would come to Orlando way before they all team up in Oklahoma(haha). On to the Magic, who is one of, if not the best defensive teams in the NBA, so you are wrong about the jumpers, they also are in the tops in pts in paint, etc. Don't post next time if you don't know what you are talking about.

I'd probably go with D-Will (I like CP3, but I don't like his knee), Durant and Howard. If you like defense and dunking, John Wall, Josh Smith and Dwight Howard would be a fun trio.

Durant-he would still score

And the award for the most dramatic overreaction to a post on PSD goes to.......... Double_R. YAY! CONGRATS!!!!!

I assume you are just having a bad day because otherwise this hissy fit was completely unnecessary. As an aside, Orlando is scarcely a free agent destination (go ahead brag about Rashard Lewis who was dramatically overpaid) and Orlando's biggest superstar ever left as a free agent. Is your memory that short? Heck, JJ tried to leave last summer (he's no superstar, but he did want to leave).

For now either:

or

Lebron, Kobe, Dwight



For the future/overall:

CP3, Durant, Dwight
or

CP3, Lebron, Dwight

Just unsure if all Lebron brings to the table is worth not having a more consistent shooter in his place.

CP3, Mello, Howard- All them alleys CP3 threw to chandler looked too easy and having howard will make it a lot easier.

Why mello over durant and Lebron? Mello is a better scorer in the post. Durant and Lebron are not good with their back to the basket.

CP3 is the best all around pg in the leauge, i cant point any weaknesses out on him.

Howard- best center in the leauge hands down

Really though if we are goign long term, I think CP3/Griffin/Dwight would be sick..CP3/BG pick and roll all day, and Dwight would be able to anchor the defense and not have to worry about offense alot. Plus if Paul can turn Chandler into a guy that averaged 12 ppg or so that one year..I can't imagine what he cold do with one of those guys.

:drool: thats the team I finally decided on too.
