I was arguing with someone today about which combo would be best to start a team with and we came up with the following:

LeBron and Wade (the most talent)

CP3 and Dwight Howard (the young guns)

Kobe and Duncan (the experience and total packages)

KG and Amare (great offense and great defense, twin towers)

This isn't for expansion teams, this is for a team that wants to win a title right now. Which combo is the best?

It's only one player on that list that has carried teams to multiple titles and two guys on that list that have multiple titles as stars.
Obviously Duncan and Kobe.

Now if I just wanted a team to compete and be good for years, I as a Bulls fan would take the CP3 and Dwight combo. I would take them because we really have never had a great PG and C on our teams. We have already had great SG and SF's on our team.

For a championship this year, you gotta go with Kobe and Duncan, but for years to come, you gotta go with the young guys, CP3 and Howard.

To win now, Kobe + Duncan. But you can't go wrong with any of them.

No Question, Kobe & TD...

Now Kobe + TD = 7 Championships & 9 Finals....

To bad we didn't get to see the best Combo Ever....

Kobe and TD would be favorites for the next 3 seasons.

CP3 and Howard would have the potential for the next 10.

Kobe and TD would win titles now.

Wade and Lebron would be the second coming of MJ and Pippen... except in this case, "Pippen" is better than "MJ". Their teams would probably need a couple of years to adjust and learn their roles before the team starts to compete.

CP3 and Dwight would be an amazing combo... the best C and PG in the league paired up. Probably more upside than Kobe/Duncan and Wade/Lebron.

guarding kobe and duncan is an impossible task

I went with Paul and Howard due to their ages but for actual championships you have to go with Kobe and Duncan right now.

Yeah Right...

The great defense is KG, not Amare, Amare's only there for offense.

I find it funny that LeBron and Wade are winning and yet most of the people who voted for them haven't posted a reply.

To "build a team around" I want CP3 and Howard.

No love for KG and Amare. Nobody likes the twin towers approach?

its obviously Timmy D and Kobe Bryant...How many championships do they have?

Yeah Right...

I think he meant to say that Amare has great offense and KG has great Defense.

If you look at any team in the league, the teams that win championships all have at least a dominant big man and a guard. So right away I throw out D wade and Lebron James. There both very good guards, but I need a dominant big man. Right now, Kobe is at a level which no guard in the league is at, Tim Duncan is the greatest PF to ever play. Yes he is better than KG. You can't go wrong with Kobe and Duncan, experience and they know what it takes to win.

KG and Amare, two very good big man. Amare is one of the best scoring big man in the league, if not the best. KG is great both ends of the floor, But Amare lacks a Defense. Plus it's pretty hard to keep both of them involved in the game since they play the same position. I throw that out. So the next combination is CP3 and Dwight Howard, these are two young freakish talented players. I think their too young and don't have what it takes to win it all.

Championship winners
Lakers-Big Man(Shaq) Guard(Kobe) won a total of 3
San Antonio-Big Man(Timmy) Guard(Tony,Manu)
Heat-Big Man(Shaq) Guard (Wade)

Best combo in NBA is always a dominant Center and a Guard that way you can control the paint and get easy baskets and have a presence inside. Plus you have your Guard doing damage and scoring.
Kobe and Duncan-Both are the best defensive players and they have the best offense.

Kobe and Duncan easily

I voted Lebron and Wade before I saw that it was for a championship this year...in that case it is no doubt Kobe and Duncan. I would like having Wade and James for starting a team because it would be the next coming of Jordan and Pippen.
