NBA Finals 2011: 5 Reasons Why Chris Bosh Shouldn't Be Included in the Big Three
LeBron and Dwade lead the way

The new Big Three have led the Miami Heat to the 2011 NBA Finals.

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.

But Chris Bosh is not one of the players responsible.

No matter how good his stats may look in the book, by no means is Bosh a superstar. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are the reasons the Heat have had such a successful season this year.

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.

Although PER is a good way of judging a player, it mostly just looks at their offensive, and doesn't include much about the defense that Bosh struggles more with.

Bosh is a solid NBA player, but shouldn't be put in the same category as these two superstars. "The Big Three" symbolizes that all three of these players are of similar talents, which they are not.

The following are five reasons why Bosh doesn't deserve to be included in "The Big Three" title.
