View Full Version : Do the Thunder boast the greatest perimeter attack in history?

For the sake of argument lets restrict the criteria to 3 perimeter players who are all at least All-Star caliber. This way we can avoid the philosophical question of whether its better to have 1 god (MJ), a demi-god (Pip) and 1 role player (Harper) over 3 great players. If not I know everyone will just choose MJ and Pip and call it a day.


So, they have 3 potential max salary guys at their disposal. Still its about how they play together. Anyone got any other comparable trios? Or should we just invite MJ to the party?

The Lakers trio of Kobe, Smush Parker, and Devean George in 2006 was pretty historic.

I'd say Pierce, Allen and KG especially in 2007

Nets when they had Kidd, Carter and Jefferson were pretty good.

By perimeter I mean PG-SG-SF

Either way you can still use the same team, solid 3-some, I just dont think they are in the same class.

I was thinking of the Bucks back in their Big3 days but that falls in the same boat. Talented but not bursting with it.

This may be the closest comparison anyone can think of

Offensively?

I don't know... I sort of liked the Cassell, Allen, Big Dog trio. Three well rounded players as far as posting up, shooting, and creating for themselves.

I was gonna say that. With Microwave off the bench to boot.

Here's an underrated one: Mo Cheeks, Andre Toney and Dr. J.

Still don't touch the current Thunder cast, though.

Really, only Magic/Scott/Worthy or Bulls duo with pg by committee stands a chance imo.

Magic Scott Worthy over Durant Wessy and Harden ANY DAY.

ANY DAY.

Best PG of all time Top 10 SF. Top 50 SG of all time.

Frazier, Monroe, and Bradley takes the cake for me.

Want to know your opinion on the Billups-Rip-Prince tandem.

I think the cassel-allen-robinson trio was better.

Totally forgot about the Richmond Mullin Hardaway trio :p They should be up there too.

Are they the best big 3 perimeter in NBA history, TODAY, probably not,...I always air on the side of no on this reactionary best ever topics.

In 5 years could they be, absolutely. If they stay together and dominant then I think its a little more realistic to say, but they haven't been around long enough yet.

perhaps they will be in the discussion once it's all said and done, but not even close now.
