Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday have Milwaukee on the cusp of its first title since 1971.
The trio that combined for 88 points in the Bucks’ comeback Game 5 win are a bona fide Big Three — and Milwaukee ponied up the cash to assemble it, paying a combined $85.7 million this season.
The East needs to Fear the Deer: Locked in together until at least 2024, their current title run could be the first of several.
Their biggest hurdle is the NBA’s most notable Big Three: Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden, who are all Nets through 2023.
Brooklyn paid them a combined $113.5M this season, though they’re watching the Finals at home.
Antetokounmpo, Middleton, Holiday, and the rest of the Bucks host the Suns for Game 6 on Tuesday.
