The Brooklyn Nets have a “big three” like no other.
Their trio includes two former MVPs and a player who hit one of the most clutch shots in NBA history.
All three of these players are elite scorers.
Each one of them are already Hall of Famers.
To have this group on one team is just plain unfair for the rest of the league.
They have looked dominant in their short sample size.
The Nets’ big three only played 20 games together before the playoffs.
However, each time they step on the court, it is an offensive showcase.
Within the first four games of their first-round series against the Boston Celtics, their offensive rating is at 127.6.
The trio is overwhelming to say the least.
Now it is time to determine which one of the three is the most important.
The man who has played the most games in a Nets uniform is Irving.
He has been stellar so far during his tenure.
Kyrie had a 50/40/90 season this year, which was the first in his career.

The handles and scoring ability are beyond elite for the seven-time All-Star.
He is able to hit the clutch shots when called upon.
Also, he has the ability to collapse a defense with ease.
Irving can get around any defender in the league.
Out of the three, he is the least accomplished.
However, he is still an elite player in this league and very valuable to the Nets organization.
Durant is the man that people talk about the most.
His way of making scoring look so easy is tremendous.
As a seven-footer that can move so swiftly, he really takes your breath away.
Durant is the only one of the trio with a Finals MVP and multiple rings.
He has been a top player for over a decade now.
With the Nets this season, he averaged 26.9 points per game on 54/45/88 splits.
He only played 35 games, unfortunately, but had an impact in every game he played in.
Durant is a generational talent that doesn’t seem like he is slowing down.
Regardless of the severe injuries he has suffered, Durant will always get a bucket.
Harden i the newest member of the trio.
He has made an impact immediately.
The Nets’ history books are already changing with someone like Harden on the team.

The man is a triple-double machine that can go for 60 points, but also go for 20 assists in a given night.
Harden has become the primary facilitator of the Nets.
The former MVP averaged 10.8 assists this season, which was second in the league.
Harden doesn’t have the playoff success like the other two, but he is still an amazing talent.
He will go down as one of the greatest scorers of all time.
Most Valuable: Kevin Durant
The most valuable member of the big three is Durant.
Not only is he the best player, but he is also the most versatile.
Durant has been lighting it up on the scoring side his whole career.
Even this postseason, he has showed a scoring display like no other.
Kevin Durant is leading the playoffs in scoring with 34.8 points per game on 55/45/90 shooting.

He is also the best defender of the three and has the easiest time taking a backseat.
A big three like this one is going to need sacrifices from players.
Durant has made sacrifices for other players on every team he has been with.
Harden and Irving are making sacrifices, but at times can really dribble the ball.
Durant knows when to go iso mode or let someone else get hot.
He is an amazing teammate to have for a monumental trio like the one they have in Brooklyn.NEXT: 2 Nets Role Players Who Must Step Up to Avoid An Early Exit
