Former Miami Heat star Chris Bosh appeared on the Fubo Sports Network Tuesday discussing his new book “Letters to a Young Athlete.” During the interview, host Julie Stewart-Binks asked the two-time champ and 11-time All-Star a hypothetical question NBA fans on Twitter live for.
Stewart-Binks asked who would win a 3-on-3 in their primes: Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden or LeBron James, Dywane Wade, and Chris Bosh.
“I’m gonna give the nod to them. I could score pretty good, and I’ll go out there and compete, but you know, they can do things I’ve never seen.”Chris Bosh on KD, Kyrie and Harden
Bosh gave the Brooklyn Nets’ trio high praise, as they have the ability to shoot from anywhere on the floor and can get to the rim with ease.
“These guys could just make all jumpers…all three of them have that ability to be like that’s not fair. …Who am I gonna guard?”Chris Bosh on KD, Kyrie and Harden
Humble, but valid point. Chris Bosh was an excellent player and defender. But, he is a big man. He wouldn’t effectively guard KD or small guards like Harden and Kyrie for long stretches. It is a bad matchup for the Heatles. But yet again, the Nets are a bad matchup for pretty much any team ever.
Miami’s big three played four years together, making the Finals every year and winning two championships. The 2010-2014 Heat are remembered as one of the best teams of the 2000’s.
Brooklyn and Miami superteams struggle the first year together
As for the current Nets, injuries plagued their entire season. First, Durant, Irving, and Harden barely saw time on the court together. Then, in the second round, Harden injured his hamstring in game one, and Irving injured his ankle in game four. Durant was phenomenal, but Harden was a shell of himself when he returned in game five, and Kyrie couldn’t return in the series.
Just like Miami, Brooklyn’s big three had a disappointing first season together. However, next year they will be the favorites to win it all again.
