Boston (Rondo and Allen)
Charlotte (Felton and Bell)
(Chicago) - Rose and Gordon
Cleveland (Mo Williams and Wally Szcerbiak)
Dallas (Kidd and Green)
Denver (Billups and JR Smith)
Detroit (Iverson and Rip)
Golden State (Crawford and Jackson)
Houston (Rafer and T-mac)
Indiana (Ford and Daniels)
LAC (Davis and Gordon)
LAL (Fisher and Kobe)
Miami (Chambers and Wade)
Milwaukee (Ridnour and Redd)
Minnesota (Foye and Miller)
New Jersey (Harris and Carter)
New Orleans (Paul and Posey)
New York (Robinson and Duhon)
Oklahoma City (Westbrook and Durant)
Orlando (Nelson and Pietrus)
Philadelphia (Miller and Iggy)
Phoenix (Nash and Jrich)
Portland (Blake and Roy)
Sacramento (Salmons and Martin)
San Antonio (Parker and Manu)
Toronto (Calderon and Parker)
Utah (Williams and Brewer)
Washington (Arenas and Stevenson)



How would you rank those backcourts in order from best to worst?



NOTE: I am not sure on a few on if a player plays SF or not, so I used a few at SG.

statistically (from a fantasy approach): Harris and Carter is the best
I do like Manu and Parker though.

Worst: Redd and Ridnour; Redd is a great scorer but can't do much else. Ridnour has a chance to be a good PG but as of now he isn't.

Utah (Williams and Brewer)
Portland (Blake and Roy)
Chicago (Rose and Gordon)
Philadelphia (Miller and Iggy)
Atlanta (Bibby and Johnson)

Toronto (Calderon and Parker) - SG and SF are the Raptors' weakness, so their backcourt doesn't really belong on this list.

I don't doubt jrich and nash will be sick, but until i see it in action I can't put it up there. No doubt the talent level is among the highest, but that doesn't always make it the best.

Kobe and Fisher might be the best because of how well they play together. Parker and Manu are pretty good too, but doesn't Manu come off the bench. I know he gets starte minutes, but still...

VC - Harris
MAnu - ParKer
Joe Jo - Bibby
Kobe - Fisher

And Nash J Rich will be sick i Agree

Kidd and Barea is funny!

Once kirk gets healthy trade him! jaja

As much as I hate to say it, I really think TP-Manu is almost indisputable. Manu in the NBA's top 15 and Parker in the top 10 in PER, and 3 rings together.


As for my homies, J.R. Smith is just now hitting his stride after starting the season relatively cold. I think if he keeps up the pace he's been at over the last 10 games or so, Billups-Smith will legitimately be a top 10 guard combo (although J.R. doesn't start).

I can't put Kobe and Fisher up there because IMO fisher isn't better then Nash, J Rich, Manu Parker, Carter, and Harris

Here's the thing about the Manu Parker backcourt. I don't know how many minutes they play together per game, but part of the reason Manu comes off the bench is because hes more effective as the focal point of the offense. He's better playing with the ball than off it. Not that they aren't great, but I don't know if they're as great together as they are seperately, if that makes sense. They're still my #1, but just saying.

Are you saying Manu's top 15 in the NBA or top 15 in PER? And their 3 rings would actually mean more if they were the best player on their team.

They play together in the 4th quarter, when it counts.

As of my writing of that post, Manu was 14th and TP was 8th in PER. But I'd still say Manu is definitely a top 20 player in the league, at least.

And as great as TD is, I don't think it would be fair to take anything away from the guard combo that, along with him, got those 3 rings. They were just as integral to those victories.
