There has been a lot of talk recently that Kevin Love may be joining the Cleveland Cavs with Lebron James.
Over the decades, the idea of creating a big 3 has become more popular among superstars looking to create an unstoppable team. One of the best known is Jordan, Pippen, and Rodman. That trio went on to win 6 championships together.f
Kobe and Shaq are close to that career total with 5 each, but neither of them were able to eclipse MJ at 6.
A Love(ly) Combination?
In his quest to match or even exceed Michael Jordan, Lebron has decided to move from his initial big three in Miami to his potential new big three back home in Cleveland.
The addition of PF Kevin Love would add a huge boost to the Cavs offensive ability…not that they needed much of a boost with James and Irving on the floor together already.
The one concern in my mind is that Kevin Love isn’t really known for his defensive prowess. It’s going to be difficult for the Cavs to win a championship without defensive stopping power.
If they can find a way to bring out a defensive presence they will be well on their way to competing at the highest level in the league.
I thought I’d leave you with some highlights of each of this potential big 3. We’ll start this one off with LBJ.
Next up is Kevin Love. Notice how much control he has for a guy who is 6′ 10”. Not many guys that big can be as smooth as him. That’s probably the reason he was the 4th leading scorer during 2014.
Last but not least we will take a look at Irving. He is one of the most exciting pointguards to watch in the league right now. Keep an eye on him when he pairs with Lebron!
