Arguably LeBron James' greatest teammate, Dwyane Wade formed a deadly partnership with James during the Miami Heat's back-to-back NBA title-winning seasons in 2012 and 2013.

LeBron James joined Wade and the Heat in 2010, and the pair oversaw the start of the Big-Three era for the Heat, alongside Chris Bosh.

In their four years together, the Miami Heat made it to the NBA Finals four times, winning the 2012 and 2013 titles. Wade was the perfect foil for Lebron and was even was the team's best player during the 2011 NBA Finals defeat to the Dallas Mavericks.

In his four years with LeBron James, Wade averaged 22 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists per game on 51% shooting. During the NBA Playoffs, Wade had averages of 20 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals on 47% shooting from the field.

Chris Bosh was the third star of the Miami Heat's Big Three during the LeBron James era at South Beach. A franchise player for the Toronto Raptors during the first seven years of his career, Bosh was a major reason behind the Miami Heat's consecutive NBA titles.

Bosh averaged 17 points and 7 rebounds per game on 50% shooting during LeBron James' four years in Miami.

In the 2012 postseason, Bosh missed nine games after suffering an abdominal strain during the second-round series against the Indiana Pacers. When he returned to action, the Heat was down 3-2 against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. The big man's return from injury helped the Heat launch a much-needed comeback.

In the pivotal Game 7 against Boston, he scored 19 points on eight of 10 from the field and grabbed eight rebounds, helping the team advance to The Finals.

Anthony Davis is right there with Wade as LeBron James' greatest teammate.


Though Wade had one of the greatest NBA careers ever, Anthony Davis' dominance is breathtaking in its own right.

In their only year together so far, the duo was absolutely unstoppable, leading the LA Lakers to the Western Conference's top seed and their 17th NBA title.

Davis led the team in points per game (26.1) and Player Efficiency Rating (27.4) in the regular season.

AD again led the team in scoring in the 2020 NBA Playoffs as well and was easily the best defender on the roster.

While LeBron James won deservedly won Finals MVP recognition, Anthony Davis earned his fair share of applause for his fantastic two-way performances.
