Default Washington's "Big Three"

IMO, I think Washington's big three -WHEN HEALTHY- is better than Boston's big three.

Kevin Garnett
Ray Allen
Paul Pierce

Vs.

Gilbert Arenas
Antawn Jamison
Caron Butler

What do you guys think?

Neither are better than me. . . .

Nah. They don't have a great low-post scorer.

True. Most of their scoring does come of off the dribble, and outside shots. Basically a bunch of penetration and kickouts for jumpers.

Yep. Until they get a legit big man, they most likely aren't going to get near a championship.

I think you're wrong. DC's three are very talented but Jamison/Gil arent interested in D or passing.

The biggest difference is with KG. Jesus and PP can play off him in a variety of ways, whether he's down low or lurking around the high post, and he's so selfless that it makes them both better. He also improves the teams D straight off. Compare that to DC, its harder to have a wing (Butler) set the tone on D, and neither Gil nor Tawn are lights out like Walter.

It's pretty much between Jamison and Garnett. Arenas is arguably a better player than Allen and Butler/Pierce can be argued to a wash, but Garnett is a far superior player to Jamison. The DC three can score just as much (and more) than the group in Boston, but right now especially they don't (and in Jamison's case, can't) put forther the defensive effort that the guys in Boston can.
