NBA Finals start tonight: Who are the Eagles Big 3?

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

Who matters most?

The 2014 NBA Finals tip-off takes place tonight between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs for the second straight year in a row. Each team figures a "Big 3" of sorts: three big named players who are most critical to the team's success. For Miami, it's viewed as Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. San Antonio's big three features Tony Parker, Manu Ginobli, and Tim Duncan (personal note: not a Spurs fan, but TD is my most favorite player in the NBA).

In the interest of comparing two dissimilar sports - NBA rosters are much smaller than NFL rosters - let's talk about what the Philadelphia Eagles version of the "Big 3" looks like. This general idea here is to pick the three Eagles players who are most vital to the team's success. If you want to focus on popularity, you could also just pick three of the most iconic current Eagles players. Just have fun with it, like you did last year.

LeSean McCoy and Nick Foles seem like the two most obvious answers. But which one is more important? Meanwhile, the third spot is open for debate.

So who makes up the Eagles big three? Which players are most important to the team's overall success?
