The NBA is going Old School again. With the dawning era of the “Big 3”, both in Boston and Miami, the team concept was lost. Things are changing.
The Indiana Pacers are an old fashioned NBA team. There are no superstars. There are players that are becoming household names (Hibbert, George, Stevenson) mainly due to their performance in the postseason. While they are making a name for themselves, the true story is the old one. The team concept.
Across the floor is the vaunted Big 3 v 2.0. James, Wade, Bosh. While Bosh is definitely above average, he is no superstar. Wade once carries the Heat on his shoulders, but injuries seem to prevent him from optimal performance. James, and this is hard to say for a Cleveland Cavalier fan, is THE best player in the league. He is the Superman of the Justice League. He is the leader and clutch player that people expected him to be over a decade ago.
But the Big 3 is NOT the Justice League that it once was. They now depend on performances from the Birdman, Haslam, Chalmers.
