For me it has to be the Roy - Aldridge - Oden trio. Injuries just killed this trio that could've been deadly. Another one could be the Devin Harris - Dirk - Jet Terry trio.

Orlando's Tracy Mcgrady, Grant Hill and Patrick Ewing would have been good, even though Ewing was past his prime.

Bogut - Rich Jeff - Michael Redd

I feel like that is a good trio when healthy.

Too bad Rich Jeff and Redd were replaced by Corey Maggette and John Salmons.

Wade/Lebron/Bosh. Clearly a failure because they lost in the Finals their first season together. They will never win a ring together even though they have 5 years left and they're in their primes...

I'd say the Kings but I feel like they were a quartet (Bibby-Peja-Webber-Vlade).

There's a lot. Fun idea for a thread.

When you throw in Matt Barnes and Al Harrington it is pretty insane that they just arbitrarily broke that team up. They could've been a force to reckon with for years!

Considering the aspirations they had going into the season, I thought the quartet of Bryant, O'Neal, Payton, and Malone was nothing short of a bust...

The trio that I thought was going to be unstoppable was

Jason Kidd
Jim Jackson
Jamal Mashburn

"The Triple J's"

They won games but should have stayed together longer and they probaly would have won a title or two

I still get ticked when thinking about that series, tish tash, but man if there ever was a series rigged that was it in my mind.

I thought Kidd, Mashburn and Jackson was going to be the best trio ever! Unfortunately I underestimated the PF and C positions.
