Over the years, the NBA has given the opportunity to several amazing players. But only a few of them have truly dominated the league in their careers. Usually, the players who dominate the NBA change every five to ten years.
For the last decade or so, LeBron James, Stephen Curry, and Kevin Durant fulfilled that role. However, with them nearing the end of their careers, fans are already wondering about who will take the mantle from them.
The most obvious guesses will be the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid, Luka Doncic, Nikola Jokic, etc. But what if you have to name a potential Big 3 that will dominate the league for the next five years?
Well, Josiah Johnson asked that question on his Twitter account. Here's what the tweet said (via "Dunk" Instagram page:
"If you could make a Big 3 to dominate the NBA for the next 5 years which 3 players you picking?"
It is definitely an interesting question and many NBA fans shared their views on the same. On that note, here are the best comments on the Instagram post.
powerhandz: "Ja, Luka, Giannis."
asangu09: "Russell Westbrick, Liangelo Ball, Blake Griffin."
owen_halle: "Luka, Tatum, Giannis. The variety pack."
melbucketzz: "Bron, KD, Steph."
g_coelho: "CP3, Giannis and Embiid."
hezzie_80: "Giannis curry lebron."
markov_02_: "Durant, giannis, joker."
bdm_angel: "Lebron steph giannis easy y’all act like steph and giannis aren’t gonna be as good in 5 years and lebron is lebron even in 5 years he’ll be old asf but he’s still got at least 2 or 3 more years in him."
twan.43: "Nah i think if jokic and luka was teammates they would be deadly."
24seth_tavares2: "Embidd joker giannas, no one getting in the paint or stopping those 3 on offence."
harmanjit_khinda: "Bron Giannis and Curry or Ja Luka and Giannis."
As expected, fans named a number of three-player combinations that can possibly dominate the league in the coming years. While some believe that the current dominant players will still be good in five years, others have placed their trust in the young guns.
Unfortunately, there is no way for us to find the correct answer to this question. The only way to find a definitive answer to the same is to wait for 5 years and see for ourselves. At the end of the game, a good assumption would be to at least have Giannis Antetokounmpo on the list.
