The NBA Triumvirate: Dynasty vs. Fallacy

Two years ago, when the first stone was cast into the discussion pond of NBA free agency 2010, the names LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were the first ripples to stir the waters with King James being the obvious jackpot prize.

While those three names have been the most prevalently circulated since 2008, it was only recently that the notion of them all playing together gained traction as a legitimate possibility.  Now with Wade and Bosh committed to Miami, all things are in place for James to join the party.

Wait a minute.  Wade, Bosh and LeBron on the same team?  That would be…

Feel free to finish the sentence because for all intents and purposes, there’s no one way to react to the potential of an NBA Cerberus monster such as the one this particular trio would form.

To even have two of those three on the same team immediately catapults a franchise into the realm of “contender” (assuming they have qualified role players), albeit mostly on paper to start.  But to have all three donning the same uniform night in and night out is a reality that’s rudely seductive to day dream about, but you’ve got to wonder whether or not it’s really the best course of action for everyone involved.

We can’t allow the luster of this Super Trio fool us into thinking that James, Wade and Bosh have all of a sudden forfeited their egos, paychecks and essentially, their games, for the sake of chasing championships together, especially given LeBron’s meltdown against Boston this past postseason.

As illustrious as such a super team may be from the outset, there are always two sides to everything and anything less than a dynasty would cast a dark cloud over the careers of all three superstars forever.
