NBA Greatest Trio's of All Time Bracket

           With the Spurs passing the 1980 Lakers for all time wins by a trio, there have been questions raised about who the greatest trio is of all time. And since I'm interested in the question, and it's March, I thought of making a bracket for the greatest trios of all time. I found the greatest trios from the 60's/70's, 80's, 90's, and 2000's and selected four from each decade/s to put into the tournament. Overall, there are 16 trios in the tournament, and the bracket laid out in regions. Seeding is determined by Championships and not my opinion of who's the greatest. 

Region 1: 

Bill Russell, Bob Cousy, John Havlicek vs. Lew Alcindor, Oscar Robertson, Bob Dandridge

Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain vs. Walt Frazier, Earl Monroe, Willis Reed

Region 2: 

Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Cooper vs Julius Erving, Moses Malone, Andrew Toney

Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish vs Isaiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Bill Laimbeer

Region 3:

Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman vs Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, Chris Mullin

Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler, Charles Barkley vs Patrick Ewing, John Starks, Charles Oakley

Region 4: 

Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili vs Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen

Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol vs Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh
