The Miami Heat have laid claim to the premier Big Three in the NBA for a few seasons now, but has free agency shaken up the standings at all?
The first few weeks of July have allowed most stars to settle into new homes, leaving the Association with plenty of Big Threes. Other teams have great trios of players, but they fall shy of earning the coveted label.
All three players have to be top-50 guys, though this is an admittedly arbitrary choice. Think about it this way: If you were building a team from scratch, all three players would need to be first or second choices as building blocks of the organization for the 2013-14 season.
Therefore, a team like the Los Angeles Clippers isn't going to make the cut. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are both All-Stars, but who's the third leg? J.J. Redick? DeAndre Jordan?
Nope, don't think so.
Of these 10 trios, three have acquired new players since the conclusion of the 2012-13 season. Have any of them managed to dethrone King James and Co.?
