Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson?

or

Ricky Rubio and Derrick Williams?

or

Kemba Walker and Bismack Biyombo?

Out of those three rookie duos, which will be the best? Rank them from 1-3 . IMO:

1) Rubio and Williams

2) Kemba and Bismack

3) Kyrie and Tristan

Sorry, Cleveland. :(

Iman Shumpert and Josh Harrellson

followed by

Kyrie and Tristan Thompson - both NJ guys, played with and against each other in the circuit, know their strengths and should mesh well.

Rubio and Williams IMO. although, Im not a fan of Williams, seems like a Tweener SF/PF, and we all know how those end up

Rubio can make anyone look good though.

Rubio / Williams

Williams is a great athletic player that can run the court well and if Rubio turns out to be the player he has been hyped up to be they could have a successful run together

Rubio and Williams, If Rubio does end up being the second coming of Steve Nash he'll do for Williams what Nash did for Amare.

my vote is kyrie and tristan, i reckon the CAVS will be the 2010 Sacromento team, still lose all the games but go big against the elite teams

In that order.

x 2


I think Williams will make Rubio look good at times and Rubio will make Williams look good as well. I'm not completely sold on Irving or Thompson, and Kemba is a beast while Bismack is RAW

Rubio and Williams, current talent level exceeds any other of the pairings.

I'd say Rubio/Williams because they have by farrrrrrrrrrrr the best coach out of any of the other pairs. A coach who actually lets players play their game and gradually develops their weaknesses into strengths

I like Kyrie and Tristan out of those. I have said since first hearing about Rubio before he was even drafted and went to Spain I don't by it, I've watched a little bit of him and he just doesn't do it for me at all. Hope he proves me wrong but I think Rubio is going to not even be a starter in 2 or 3 years.

kemba and byiombo

I don't think Byimobo is going to get a lot of minutes, he is so unrefined offensively, it will be a year or two imo.

Kemba, I just don't get. After watching tweeners who aren't big enough to play the 2, and not real PG's like Foye and Flynn with my Wolves for example, I am VERY skeptical of those types.

You made this one far too easy to play the Homer card.

byombo is a similar case to ibaka, he will need some time to beast ( and he will, just like ibaka just wait and see him this season).

I love Kemba, but Bismack is literally useless on offense right now. He could be a solid defensive roleplayer in his first year, but he's far too limited...therefore as a pair they wont be as productive as others.

Thompson is a question mark for me. I think he was drafted too high, but he has the potential to breakout, or do absolutely nothing. I like Kyrie quite a bit, but I'm not sure what he'll be able to do with a weak supporting cast.

Rubio is the most mature of the three IMO, and he has a game style that will work in the NBA. Rookie season I think he can average 8-10 assists with his supporting cast and a good coach. Williams is a bit of a tweener, but he's damn talented. He should have no problem scoring, his struggles will likely come on the defensive end. Either way, I think it's a gimme that this pair is the most productive.

This year? Rubio and Williams. For the future? Irving and Thompson.

1) Kemba and Bismack
2) Kyrie and Tristan
3) Rubio and Williams

I think people are really sleeping on Kemba Walker. He's slightly larger than Allen Iverson, plays a similar style and averages comparable numbers and took Connecticut to the promised land, much farther than Kyrie Irving's supposedly better Duke. Ricky Rubio's flashiness internationally is a completely unknown quality in the NBA game. Why are people so convinced Walker can't be better than Irving or Rubio? I think he himself makes the Charlotte combo the best, the first year.

Coming from somehow who went to school w/ Kemba(I went to Rice)...
Kemba is at best a rich/poor man's version of Aaron Brooks(which is not terrible, but not good, somewhat average). His jumpshot and defense is decent, his handles are great, he's just a mediocre defender. Add to that, he's 5'11. I'm rooting for him obviously, but I don't think he'll be in Rubio/Irving's league(as far as impact goes). Plus, Bismark is just a defender.

I want to say Rubio/Williams, but I don't see Williams getting enough playing time this year to be a factor, so I would go with Irving/Thompson - for this year alone. Overall, Rubio/Williams - I hope!

Why would Williams not get enough playing time?

Rubio and Williams, If Rubio does end up being the second coming of Steve Nash he'll do for Williams what Nash did for Amare.

wow you are making some bold predictions. let the guy play one NBA game.

Irving and Thompson alot of reports were that Thompson owned Williams in predraft work outs and i also am a cavs homer so :) i dont think Thompson will put up the points that Williams does but i think he will out rebound and be way better defensivly

Beasley and Love. That being said, Adelman simply finds ways to get his good players on the floor, regardless of position overlaps. He did it for years in Houston, he will find a way in Minny.

2x

Rubio and Williams hands down.. Williams was the best talent in the draft and Rubio could make me look good in the NBA (ok let's not get too carried away) Rubio is a true pass first point gaurd. IMO he's a poormans steve nash.. for now. This kid has been pro for what 6 - 7 years and he is 21. Give him time and with a great coach which the Wolves got he COULD be better than Nash. With that being said 'NBA is BACK!!!!!!' :clap:
