Default Dino Nation: Big 3 is Earned Not Given…Or It Should Be.

So what do you guys think? Have Bosh, JO and Jose already earned the right to be called our version of the Celts "Big 3"?

I think success makes you that. Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett had to go out and prove it. So do the guys the Raptors are counting on in Bosh, O’Neal and Calderon. What may look great on paper still needs to translate into the real world.

Chris Bosh wants to take his game and his team to a new level. J.O wants to re-establish that he is an all-star level player in this league. While Jose Calderon needs to prove that he was indeed the better point guard of the Ford vs Calderon debate. These things all need to happen for the Raptors to have the kind of success that G.M Bryan Colangelo expects. Bryan has created a team that he feels can reach that next level and it is now up to the players and coaches to help prove him right.
