Like peas in a pod, good things often come in threes.

Be it the comedic team of Mo, Larry, and Curly, the Kellogg's legends Snap, Crackle, and Pop, or the musical stylings of Earth, Wind, and Fire, its safe to say that trios maintain some pretty exclusive company.

As they are oh-so affectionately called, Miami Thrice have emerged as both the darlings and villains of the NBA world this offseason. Thus, they have accrued more headlines than John Calipari has recruiting violations.

  2. Each team needs to be balanced to a degree (i.e, there cannot be a team entirely made up of big men, but there does not have to be a true guard, forward, and center on every roster).

  4. Modern rules (i.e, there is a three point line).
