Attention Sports Fans — Who Is The Big Three Of All Time?

A few weeks ago I was having a sports debate with a few friends A.T, S.S., and M.N., The discussion was about who are the best 3 players to ever play together. Over the years the media has referred to this term as the Big Three. When I give myself a minute to think about this here is what I come up with:

  • Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish
  • Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, Johnny Bucyk
  • Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada

I lived through both the Celtics and Bruins Big Three and as much as I would love to admit one of them is the greatest of all time I don’t believe it is. The Yankees Big Three is amazing. Mariano and Derek are 100% first time hall of famers and Posada has a chance to get in. All of them have been together for 16 years! Yes 16 years – that will probably NEVER happen again in the history of any sport. In addition they have too many World Series rings… It hurts too much for me to name all the years or count all the rings.

  • The question is are they the best of all time?
  • Who else should be in the discussion?

I look forward to reading your thoughts and comments.
