The Big Three.
The Big Three this. The Big Three That.
How many times this NBA season have we heard about how good the Heat's Big Three are? After all the annoying hype last offseason, the biggest focus this season has been about how dominant the Heat and their new players are.
The Miami Heat are a very dynamic basketball team. They have a few of the best basketball players on the planet. The skills of these superstars have pointed this team in all the right directions this season.

Bosh's player efficiency rating was 19.4, a bit better than the league average of 15. But while 19.4 is by no means a bad rating, Wade and James were rated at 25.7 and 27.3 respectively.
In the player efficiency rating reference guide, a 19.4 rating is in between a solid second option player and a borderline All-Star. Way up in the higher 20's are the players who are considered superstars.
