Everyone wants to talk about the “Big Three” in Miami. They guaranteed multiple titles when they formed in 2010. Meanwhile, they are taking on another “Big Three” in San Antonio in the NBA Finals for a second straight year. The Spurs wanted revenge and they are a win away from their fifth NBA title and sending the Heat home. Let’s take a look at which “Big Three” gets the edge now.
Tale of the tape
Tale Of The Tape: Heat Big 3 Vs. Spurs Big 3
|Dwyane Wade has had himself quite the career in Miami. He teamed up with Shaq to win a title in 2006. LeBron James and Chris Bosh formed the Big Three in 2011. Wade would win two more in 2012 and 2013. While he's undoubtedly had a wonderful career, he has been rattled by injuries throughout his career.||Dwyane Wade vs Tony Parker||Tony Parker is the most under-appreciated point guard in the NBA. He's the ultimate distributor and never looks to shoot first. He can get to the rack when he needs to and he can make a mid-range jumper when they leave him open. He's also about to get his fourth NBA title, which has Wade beat.|
|LeBron James is the best player on the planet. This one is easy.||LeBron James vs Manu Ginobili||Manu Ginobili has had a very impressive career and has been nothing but a winner with the Spurs. You can't compare him to King James, though.|
|Chris Bosh gets criticized sometimes by a lot of people, but he's a very good player. He's expanded his game and become a threat from three-point range, making it tough for big man to stop him. It's Timmy D, though.||Chris Bosh vs Tim Duncan||Tim Duncan is nothing but a professional. Nobody handles themselves better on and off the court than The Big Fundamental. He's on his way to a fifth NBA title. An All Star, a professional, and a champion. Not much more you can ask.|
The winner is

With the World Cup still going strong and the NFL just weeks away from getting started it seemed like a fun idea to compare the two sports that share the same name…sort of. From the global “futbol” to the American “football” these sports are two of the most popular in their own right. As somewhat of a disclaimer I will add that this Tale of the Tape is being written by an American, though I am a big soccer fan. That being said, let’s start the debate.
