With the copious amount of talent in the league nowadays, having one or even two superstar talents is often not enough to win a championship. Not even LeBron could do it all by himself in Cleveland. Now that free agency is effectively over, who are the best “big three’s” in the coming season?
Opinions vary on what constitutes a “Big Three,” but for the purposes of this post, I use this simple question: Are there three obvious choices for best players on the team and are those three people All-Star quality players? Using this formula I leave out teams like the Clippers with an obvious big two in Chris Paul and Blake Griffin but no real third factor to be included. Also, a team like Brooklyn now has a very solid starting five, but it’s not clear who would be left off of a “Big Three” list.
Now that has been cleared up… on to the threesomes.
