Doc Rivers knows a thing or two about having a big three.
Before the Miami Heat tried putting together their own big three, Rivers had already won a title with his own trio before the Heat ever thought about putting one together.
Rivers is no longer in Boston with Pierce, Garnett, and Allen, but he believes he has own big three out west now. Rivers likes the trio of CP3, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan.
During an interview with ESPN L.A., Rivers said he was focused on this big three winning a title.
“I’m always focused on our big three guys, Blake [Griffin], DJ [DeAndre Jordan] and Chris [Paul],” Rivers said. “Their leadership is important to our team. I’m always watching them. I think those are the guys that I have more focus on than anybody else.”
“That’s our big three, I like our big three,” Rivers said. “I like what DeAndre gives us. He gives us something a lot of the guys in the league can’t do. He can block shots, he can run the floor, he can defend, he’s talking and he’s in the best shape of his career. He’s doing a lot of great things for us.”
