I was watching the Magic-Rockets game the other night, and I started thinking to myself that if Yao had Dwight's athleticism, and vice versa, he would be the most unstoppable NBA player in NBA history. So me being a Rockets fan, of course I would combine Dwight and Yao to get a 7'6 center with range, great FT%, and amazing post game, with power on the defensive end and could jump out of the roof blocking shots and dunking on anybody in his way with pure aggression.

Which 2, only 2, current NBA players would you combine and why?

Oh yea, and they must play the same position. So you cant say something unreal like Shaq with Iverson handles and jumper! And by position I mean Point Guard, Wing, and Post.

No Brainer.
Kobe's shot, footwork, and general fundamentals with Lebron's body and athleticism.

But now with the most generic mix out of the way, I propose

Josh Smith and David Lee

Sick athleticism, finishing ability, and defense along with Lee's nose for the ball on rebounding, ambidexterity, mid-range jumper and free-throws.

avoiding the Kobe/Lebron....

Carmelo and Artest-a pure scorer with a real threat in the post, combined with a great 3 point shot and amazing defense

Carmelo and Artest, was a great suggestion. Wade with Kapono's shot would be nasty also.

Steven A. Smith

Carlos Boozer with Emeka Okafor, Boozer would be bring all the offense and Emeka would bring all the defense, they'd both combine they're rebounding skills!

Wade and Raja Bell.

Strength, athleticism, handles, passing, midrange, clutchness, help defense with man defense and amazing 3pt shooting.

Hmmm... how about Nate Robinson and Steve Nash.

Nate's youth and athleticism with Steve's passing ability and shooting touch.

Could you imagine Steve Nash dunking over Dwight...

Kobe Bryant with Lebron James. With Kobe Bryant's skills and best all-around game in the NBA in Lebron's freakish body, that player would be unstoppable.

Lebron James and Kobe Bryant.

If Lebron could shoot, defend and do a bunch of other things Kobe does combined with Lebron's body, athleticism and force, that would be unstoppable

Battier + (Lebron or Kobe) offense defense, utter domination on both sides of the ball.

Shaq and Yao.

Yao's strengths are Shaq's weaknesses and vice versa.

Cover SHaq's strength and you have a C who could make the mid-range, free throw, and dominate inside.

Darko Milicic and Kwame Brown.

I think even just Nash's basketball IQ and composure would be enough! One of the more underrated combinations here, nice one.

Not trying to be too homerish, but I feel like if Kobe's job was to be a defensive stopper he would be as good as Battier, so I don't think that adds much.

I think the OP was on to something when he said Yao and Dwight though. Imagine a 7'6" player with Dwight's athleticism and Yao's shot and post moves.
He would realistically average like 40 and 15

Thabo sefolosha with BGs offensive ability, that would be a top SG in the League, Joe Johnson esk

another, Yao Ming with Tyrus thomas type athleism, How sick would that be.

One more, D Wade with CP3s passing ability, I mean, by no means is D Wade a bad passer, but with him balling like CP3 and gettin to the rim like he does, pretty sick.

Dirk + Amare is another good one. Amare's athleticism, post game, and heart with Dirk's outside range and turnaround jumper, at 7ft. tall.

Nate + anyone = douche.

His douchiness is just that powerful.

I don't get the Kobe/Lebron mix. LeBron already is those two combined. He now has a killer jump shot, he's suddenly awesome on D, and he has been a better finisher for the last few years.
I'll go Dirk/Stoudemire, or Yao/Howard.
I think Yao/ Howard would be the top... like wilt with a jumper. Like Olajuwon with another 5 inches on top, and more athletic.

:laugh: Good joke right there. Killer jump-shot? LOL. Kobe's mid-range is about 7% higher than Lebron's muh man.

The 2 of the best pfs in the league... Both great but completely different... Dirk and Duncan... Dirk's shooting and handles plus Duncan's post up moves and defense... :speechless:

How about a combination of roleplayers to make a star? Something like:

Jame Posey's 3pt shot, defense, leadership and court-savvy with Gerald Green's athleticism and overall basketball skill? You've got an MVP calibre wing.

Or Chris Andersen's defensive presence, intensity, and athleticism with Eddy Curry's low post game and frame? That's a top flite centre.

Sam Cassell's leadership, court vision, and mid range game with Sebastian Telfair's scoring ability and speed? There's one of the more dangerous floor generals in the game.
