Two Cavaliers won a championship with LeBron James with the Heat, Mike Miller and James Jones.

Those two obviously share a bond with LeBron, because they followed him to Cleveland – and they’re not even from there.

The Cavaliers’ Eastern Conference title has only intensified their bond.

Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal:

LeBron James wandered across the locker room holding a champagne bottle in his left hand when he wrapped each of his arms around Mike Miller and James Jones.
“The big three,” he whispered quietly before taking a swig of champagne.

Screw Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, apparently.

I get what LeBron actually meant – and I love it. I’m all for the silliest Big Three groupings possible, especially when a member of a real Big Three is the one changing the members. Paul Pierce got this started, and I hope others in addition to LeBron follow.
