Boston. They bring different elements to the table. Unfortunately for Miami, LeBron and Wade are basically the same player. Boston's big three have more defined roles. Garnett is the defensive anchor. Pierce plays with the ball and Ray plays off the ball. If there is a big shot needed the C's know exactly how to approach it. They look for Pierce first and Ray second. If there is a model "Big Three" in the NBA it is Boston. Of course, Rondo actually makes them a Big Four.

Knicks? They only have a big 2 right now so even including them in this discussion is kinda silly. (And I'm a big Billups fan, he's just getting up there.)
Until somebody beats Boston in the playoffs I have to give it to the Celtics.

Boston, because they know how to play together. Look out for NY though. So far there have been some real signs of learning between their current big 3.
