Dwyane Wade addresses GOAT status of Heat Big 3 with LeBron James, Chris Bosh
Many consider the Miami Heat’s Big 3 of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh as perhaps the greatest trio ever assembled in the modern era. Despite their short-lived run together, they still have two NBA titles to their names.
For Wade, however, the former All-Star guard does not believe that the Heat Big 3 should be considered as the GOAT. This is what the 38-year-old had to say about this discussion in a recent video chat with Channing Frye and Udonis Haslem on Bleacher Report’s Running it Back:
“Are we the best of all time?” Wade asked, via Omar Guerrero of Heat Nation. “Probably not, but we’re definitely one of the top in the sense of the body of work that we put in in those four years.
“But are we the best? That’s not for me to say, but we’re definitely one of the best.”
There have been more than a few Big 3’s that have been formed throughout the history of the NBA. One that instantly stands out — definitely because of all the hype surrounding “The Last Dance” — is the Chicago Bulls trio of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman. This particular Big 3 dominated the league in the mid-1990s en route to a memorable three-peat run. Their greatness is simply unquestioned.
In his mind, the Heat legend admits that they may not be the very best ever. However, as he stated above, he also believes that they should at least be in the conversation when talking about the GOAT Big 3.
