Default Forgotten Big Threes

Sometimes, there is a big three or trio that, with the passage of time or another trio, gets forgotten and it's easy to dismiss how good they were.

What are some groups that fall under this category?

Two that come to my mind: Steve Nash/Dirk Nowitzki/Michael Finley in Dallas and Ray Allen/Glenn Robinson/Sam Cassell in Milwaukee.

Sam Cassell/Ray Allen/Glenn Robinson

back in the early 2000's they were considered the big 3.

Not really forgotten but Nash/Amare/Marion were a very talented Big 3.

What about Gilbert, Hughes and Jamison from the Wiz back in the middle of the last decade. They were entertaining to watch...
