Now that Jeremy Lin and James Harden are together in Houston - and a lot of other new back courts have been created - rank the league's top 10 back courts based on how good you think they'll be this season.

1. Los Angeles
2. New Jersey
3. San Antonio
4. Denver
5. Oklahoma City
6. Houston
7. Milwaukee
8. Los Angeles
9. Miami
10. Boston

Houston and LA have to much to prove to be ranked so high, as well as BK. Obviously you can't just rank back courts off of paper.. because paper rosters win you nothing.

I don't like the Bucks back court either, they're just to hit or miss, they're both notorious chuckers who could go off or shoot a combined 4-25 from the field.

I always like a back court that features CP3 so I do like one of the LA's back courts and I also think Miami has a deep back court this season with a solid 4 man rotation.

The Spurs are also going to be efficient and have a solid rotation so you can pretty much count on them being a top 5 back court

and even though it kinda contradicts my first statement about teams on paper, but I do like the depth OKC has with Westy, Maynor, Martin, Lamb, Seph.

Boston is usually solid ( at least defensively) and I think they found a spark plug in Jason Terry

I don't like Houston's at all and believe they gave up to much for Harden, and they reached for a potential star.

Golden State has potential if healthy to be up their, especially with Clay Thompson proving to be efficient, and Washington has a lot to prove

Long story short, lot's of teams have a lot to prove before I believe they can be ranked, there's just TOO many new back courts

Portland and Washington with YOUNG back courts
Lakers, Denver, Houston, BK, Boston, OKC, all having new players
Bucks chuckers
Golden State, injury issues

:facepalm: Typical Heat fan lol

How you have Lebron who has been said to e playing the 4 this year in the backcourt is beyond me. Yes, I understand he has the ball in his hands an awful lot but can you at least go by player positions? And to have Rondo/Terry that low is just wrong.

Heat fans are so :eyebrow: Credibility? You guys have none.

You've added nothing to the conversation except unnecessary bashing someone. Although Miami does have a solid rotation of Wade, Chalmers and Allen... So there is a case to be made that they're top 5

Are you out of your mind? Nash/Kobe were both still all-stars last season and deserved to be. How good they are together this year remains to be seen.

Wild Wild West lmao, funny and fitting. But no Westbrook is not moving to the 2. Now he'll play more 2 this year most likely, especially early on, but he's the PG here.

Boston has the best 5 guard rotation in the league.
Rondo, Bradley, Terry, Lee, Barbosa.

:laugh2: Bucks backcourt is talented but as inefficient and undersized as can be.

Lakers in a landslide, followed by Brooklyn, Boston, OKC and San Antonio

The one thread I thought I wouldn't see LeBron in, and people find a way to put him in it, even though he'll be playing the 4 most of the time.

Bringing in Harden not only gives Houston one of the best back courts in the league. It also makes them more attractive to the top-tier big man they're surely going after. Too bad they couldn't use their brains, pay Lowry and have him and Harden in the back court.

whoever put toney douglas as a player in houston's backcourt automatically tells me to not put them in the top 10.

Still think Nets have the best, give them the slight edge over the Lakers. Deron Williams can do things now that at this point, Nash isn't capable of. Nash is still an excellent passer and is a very solid shooter, but on any given night, Deron Williams can literally take over the game. Bryant is evidently on a different level than Johnson, but I still think the Nets have the advantage by a little bit.

Anytime you have CP3 in your backcourt you are automatically top 5 or better.

I like back courts that know each other and compliment each other well. On paper, to me, it's obviously the Lakers. But in reality, right now, it's the Spurs for me. They could play with reach other in their sleep.

The posts in here are unreal :laugh2:

So far from all of the games played the ranking is:

1. Brooklyn (Deron, Johnson, Marshon, CJ Watson, Taylor, Bogans)
2. LAC (Paul, Billups, Crawford, Bledsoe, Green)
3. Boston (Rondo, Bradley, Lee, Barbosa, Terry)
4. Miami (Chlmbers, Wade, Cole, Allen, Miller)
5. LAL (Nash, Kobe, Meeks, Blake)
