That isn't a big three. Sam Cassell wasn't a "star" caliber player.

Is it just me or this is what's supposed to be a big three? Because you know three great players and, 6'9, 6'10, 7' (all at least)

Sam Cassell was one of the best PG's in the game and yes that was a legit big 3. If anything Robinson was the weakest link of that trio.

Is this a serious post? Who the fuck forgot any Jordan, any Magic or any Chamberlain/West trios? Get the hell outta here.

Some people really need to try and understand what a big three is, it isnt just the three best players on any given team...


You should try watching basketball before making posts. That Indiana team was poised to do some major damage with that trio, but Jackson wore out his welcome.

I don't think Horace Grant made that a big 3.

Who? You can't mean Tom Chambers. He was on the bench by then. Dan Majerle, ok.

It sucked that Baron and Mashburn were never healthy at the same time though.
