End of the Big Three in Miami?

The Miami Heat's Big Three set out for a three-peat this season. Instead, they got hammered by the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, leading many to speculate that this might be the end of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all together in South Florida. Then again, there are some suggestions all three could stay -- and be joined by Carmelo Anthony. What do you expect to see?

Kevin DurantAndrew Richardson/USA TODAY Sports

According to Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks, Kevin Durant could be scoring more. That's not to say Brooks is dissatisfied with Durant's ability; instead, the coach praised the MVP frontrunner for being "all about the team." Of course, similar things have been said about LeBron James. Is Durant -- the NBA's scoring leader this season, by a large margin -- the best when it comes to putting points on the board? Where do the rest of the league's top scorers rank? Click on the images below to set your list!
