Spurs' Triumvirate and their never ending affair with History

Unlike EL HEAT, the San Antonio Spurs BIG 3 weren’t built overnight. Like getting prepare for a long harvesting season, the Big 3 seeds were carefully scooped through draft selections then sow and reaped and have been growing together since 2002. During that span, S.O’Neal and Tracy McGrady played for five different teams; Jason Kidd, Steve Nash and Kevin Garnet for three and LeBron James has played for two.

Unless Duncan retires after this season, San Antonio’s Big Three probably will pass over a very exclusive group of selected players in NBA’s history. And that's quite an accomplishment.

729 – Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish (Boston)
