The Chicago Bulls know a thing or two about talented trios. Led by Guy Rodgers, Bob Boozer, and current Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, the team reached the postseason in their inaugural season, 1966-67.

During the Bulls' first three NBA championships (1991-1993), Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Horace Grant were the team's three biggest stars.

After Grant left town for Orlando in '94, the Bulls went on to complete another three-peat, winning titles from '96-98 with Jordan, Pippen, and Grant's replacement, Dennis Rodman leading the way.

Then-Bulls general manager Jerry Krause attempted to build yet another amazing trio in the early 2000s that consisted of high-lottery picks Jay Williams, Eddy Curry, and Tyson Chandler.
