WHERE ARE THEY NOW? The players from LeBron James' Miami Heat championship teams

The Miami Heat Big Three shook the NBA to its core.

When LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh joined up together in the summer of 2010, it was rare to see three superstars in their prime band together. Now it's commonplace.

However, as quickly as that super-team came together, it fizzled out in Miami.

LeBron and Wade left Miami, Bosh left the NBA, and the core of those Heat teams fell apart.

With Wade joining James in Cleveland for the 2017-18 season, two of the members of that team are back together, but much of the core is elsewhere.

See where the major players are today.

Ray Allen left a Big Three with the Celtics to join the Heat's Big Three in 2012. His defining moment came in the 2012-13 Finals, when he hit a game-tying three-pointer with five seconds to play in Game 6. The Heat won the game and later, the series.

Allen retired after the 2014 season, though he has reportedly considered making an NBA comeback at various points. He is the NBA's all-time leader in three-pointers.
