Why were they never referred to as the PGA tour?  It would have been perfect.  Just sayin...

They were the Big Three, not sure why we want to re-write history...

Big 3. They kind of started that term and the lebron heat stole it and other mediocre teams like today's okc thunder stole it

big 3 brings to mind Bird/Mchale/Parish not Pierce/Garnett/Allen. 

I think the "PGA tour" is pretty clever.  TP to the OP for the idea

Allen who? Tony Allen? Why is he being talked about in the same breath as Pierce and Garnett?

I don't recall any other Allen playing for Boston in recent times.

Oh I remember the title and Pierce hoisting his MVP trophy. I also recall some hired gunner who took a lot of threes but was mostly a whiny little chump. Whatever happened to that guy?

Yes it does, so Pierce/Garnett/Allen was the new Big 3, if you like.

actually I'd like to see them get their own nickname than copy something from the real Big 3.  really like that PGA Tour moniker but curious if anyone can come up with another good one.
