Can You Create A Big Three That Can Beat The Golden State Warriors?

The big 3 is more common in today's NBA than it has ever been before. Players used to oppose joining forces with each other to form super teams as they wanted to prove they could win by themselves or with only one sidekick, and trios of great players would only be formed through the draft and trades, such as the Celtics' Bird, Parish, and McHale, or the Lakers' Magic, Kareem, and Worthy.

But ever since the summer of 2010, when LeBron joined forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, players joining up during free agency to form super teams has only happened more often. The irony is that because of these big 3's, other teams must form big 3's just to compete with them.

Case in point, the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. As the Warriors have continued to dominate the NBA since 2015, Cleveland has tried every avenue to add more All-Star talent alongside LeBron James. Just this offseason, they've added Derrick Rose to their bench and traded Kyrie Irving for Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder, just to compete with the behemoth that is Golden State.

But now it's your turn.

You've magically been thrust into the position of NBA GM, and as a new GM, you have your choice of 3 players out of 16 of the league's best talent.

Who are you going to take to make up your own big 3 that may just rival the Warriors?
