(BPRW) It Takes Three to Compete

(BLACK PR WIRE) – In professional sports, offense sells tickets, defense wins games, but having three superstars can build a successful dynasty. This cliché can certainly be used to describe successful NBA franchises. From the early 1980s up until now, NBA franchises have won back-to-back titles because they realize that having three talented superstars increases their chances of winning championships. Let’s look at a couple of teams who have used this formula to generate success.

In the ‘80s, the Boston Celtics captured three NBA championships (1981, 1984 and 1986) behind Bird, McHale and Parrish. The Los Angles Lakers led by Magic, Worthy and Kareem earned five titles (1980, 1982, 1985, 1987 and 1988), while the Detroit Pistons claimed two rings (1989 and 1990) thanks to Thomas, Dumars and Laimbeer. The trend was just beginning at this time.

As the early ‘90s began, three was truly becoming the magic number. The Chicago Bulls won six NBA titles (1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997 and 1998) with Jordan, Pippen and Rodman. The Houston Rockets had Olajuwon, Drexler and Smith (1994 and 1995). At the start of the millennium year in 2000, the Los Angles Lakers won the first three titles, behind Kobe, Shaq and Fisher (2000, 2001, 2002) followed by Duncan, Ginobili and Parker from San Antonio (2003, 2005 and 2007).

Now the Miami Heat can try and join the other dynasties next season as Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh and Lebron James will all be on the same team. Each superstar has mentioned they don’t mind taking a pay cut if it will bring them closer to winning championships.
