All along, it’s been a running joke amongst NBA fans. The Big Three in Miami is really only the Big Two. We know what Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are… no one is quite sure what to make of Chris Bosh or how to include him. Well now we know: Bosh is out indefinitely with the abdominal injury he suffered in Game 1 yesterday afternoon, and the whisperings are that the Third Wheel may miss this second round series with the Pacers. That leaves the Heatles in exactly the same position they’ve always been… a bunch of role players supporting the two most unstoppable fast-break options in the league.

James didn’t have a great start yesterday after receiving the MVP trophy in his newly-customized sneakers. But he did catch this awesome half-court pass from Wade for a pretty finish.

Was it a spectacular alley-oop? Yes. But since these two put together more highlights than a stalker filing through Scarlett Johansson‘s personal photos, this one is nothing more than another notch on the belt.

Whether Miami can overcome the loss of Bosh inside is up for debate. In the meantime, here are the 10 best alley-oops Wade and ‘Bron have connected on…

Honorable Mention:

MAR. 29, 2012 VS. DALLAS
Another piece of evidence that can be used to prove Lamar Odom wasn’t the only thing wrong with Dallas this year. They just flat-out sucked.

OCT. 29, 2010 VS. ORLANDO
In one of their first real tests together with the Miami Heat, ‘Bron and Wade welcomed the Orlando Magic – a team thought to be a real nightmare matchup – into South Beach where they promptly disintegrated them by 26. This play came in the midst of a crazy first half run, and I distinctly remember being scared for the rest of the NBA.

10. JAN. 27, 2011 AT NEW YORK
Remember two summers ago when a new GIF or Photoshop’d picture of LeBron in a Knicks’ uniform would turn up somewhere on the Internet? I think it’s safe to say New Yawkers never thought they be Witness-ing plays like this in the future.

9. FEB. 19, 2012 VS. ORLANDO
Shoutout to LeBron the point guard here. If there’s any instance of a more pin-point pass from midcourt on an alley-oop, show it to us. It’s as if he leads Wade right into the bucket. All Wade had to do was casually jump up just a few inches above the rim and casually finish it. Orlando had no chance.
