You can’t argue with results. Since being constructed in the summer of 2010, Miami’s Big Three has made it to the Finals every year and have now won consecutive championship rings. Miami won 66 of their 82 games last year – more than any other team – including an insane 27-game win streak.

Wade may not be what he once was, and Bosh likes to play “The Invisible Man” from time to time. But there is no getting around the fact that they are still very good players, and when it counts most, they can elevate their game. The true success of Miami’s Big Three is that Wade and Bosh served as a protective cocoon for LeBron James to be able to evolve from a great player with a choking problem into the undisputed greatest player in the game right now.

With James, Wade and Bosh all able to terminate their respective contracts next summer, expect the trio to be just as aggressive and just as motivated to complete the three-peat. If it is their last season together, you better believe they want to go out on top.
