Chris Bosh claims the Kevin Durant led Nets big-3 is better than the LeBron James, Dwyane Wade Miami Heat big-3 from the early 2010s.
The era of big 3s started well before LeBron James and Chris Bosh decided to take their talents to South Beach in 2010. The most notable trio of superstars from before the 2000s would have to be Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman. In that same era of basketball, the Rockets tinkered around with stars like Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon, Scottie Pippen, and Clyde Drexler.
However, the term ‘big-3’ was officially coined around the Celtics and Heat big 3 era in the early 2010s. The Miami Heat trio of superstars consisting of LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade, surprisingly, underachieved. Winning 2 straight championships is no cake walk but having a team built around that core should’ve won more, plain and simple.
In all fairness however, Dwyane Wade was not himself from the 2013-14 season onwards and neither was Chris Bosh, as the later was relegated to a pick ‘n’ pop role for the most part. Age caught up to the two superstars and left LeBron James to be the sole superstar on that team, going up against an al-time Spurs squad.
Chris Bosh gives the Nets big-3 the edge over LeBron James and the Miami big 3.
Chris Bosh recently took to the Fubo Sports Network to talk about his new book, “Letters to a Young Athlete” and while promoting this book, was asked about the battle of the big-3s. According to Bosh, he’d give the edge to the 2021 Nets, over the 2012 Heat.
“I’m gonna give the nod to them (Nets). I could score pretty good, and I’ll go out there and compete, but you know, they can do things I’ve never seen. In 3-on-3 games, it’s about what could happen. These guys could just make all jumpers. It’s not fair.”

The Brooklyn Nets big-3 of Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and James Harden is undoubtedly the most lethal offensive trio of superstars in the history of the NBA. No team in the league since its inception has seen 3 superstars that can drop 40 on any given night, band together on the same team.
The only version of the Miami Heat trio that has a chance would be the one that claimed the title in 2012 as this was the last season both Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were considered to be superstars.
