Name a 2 man combination that would have been amazing to watch had it ever happened.

The rules: last 20 years only, no Jordan, Lebron or Duncan or Shaq. Honestly you could put just about any star player with one of those 4 and had a great team.

one combination that intrigues me -

Kevin Garnett
Vince Carter

They would have been nasty as hell. Both guys can score, handle the ball, and possess tremendous passing skills. And can you imagine if KG's attitude and tenacity rubbed off a little on Vince? WOW. that would have been bad news for the league for a LONG time.

so who would you have loved to see?

D Rose and Lebron. Could have happened.

Would have been as dominant as the Heat are now. IDK if they would have been able to keep Deng with the cap.

i should have put more restrictions on that list, damn Hakeem obviously belongs in that company as well.

another one I would have loved to see. Steve Nash and Ray Allen. Allen needed a fraction of a seconds daylight to get his shot off and Nash would have delivered the ball on a rope on time every time.

I understand the parameters, but most of these are fantasy scenario's. I'll tell you of one that almost happened during the 1984 draft. Story is that the Rockets and Bulls had a deal to send Ralph Sampson to Chicago in exchange for the draft rights of one Michael Jeffrey Jordan, pairing him with Akeem Olajuwon in Houston. Wrap your mind around that for a minute. The Bulls owner pulled the plug in the final moments, and the rest; as they say; is history.

I said this in the lakers forum but If ya go back 30 years, I always thought magic Johnson and pau gasol would be a fantastic duo.

Kobe/KG would be intense to watch, there couldn't be any soft player on a team with those 2 together.

I know john Stockton is a hofer and i know that Stockton and malone are one of the best duos ever but I think it would be fun to watch Chris paul to Malone. Cp3 and griffin are pretty solid, imagine what cp3 could do with the mailman..

I think Steve Nash and Larry bird woulda been fun to watch

Allen Iverson and joakim Noah woulda been nice too because Noah doesn't shoot much and when Iverson misses shots Noah would just gobble up the rebound and pass it back to Iverson so he could take another shot.

Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett. I could see this duo doing really well, both guys are intense, have a great work ethic, etc... and Garnett doesn't have a problem deferring offensively.

Shaq and T-Mac- Shaq could shine with T Mac as Shaq could be the alpha male and T-Mac isn't going to make waves. He's an easy going type of guy that doesn't have that dominant personality. Also, on the court they would have been nice...

Shaq and Vince Carter

Duncan and J. Kidd

How about Hakeem Olajuwon and Kobe Bryant? If we're going back up to 20 years, that's all the way to the 1993-94 season, in which Olajuwon was the MVP. Bryant, meanwhile, is the greatest guard not named Michael Jordan between then and now. It seems, talent-wise, to be the best possible pairing. And they fit well together, with Bryant the top scorer and Olajuwon the force in the middle like Shaquille O'Neal was.
You could also interchange Olajuwon with David Robinson and get similar results.

Keep in mind though, Shaq led the league in scoring with Kobe (In 2000) on the team and still avg. 25 plus a night throughout their 8 yrs together and had plenty of touches. In other words, Hakeem and Kobe would be fine. I also think Hakeem's even tempered personality would match with Bryant's high strung personality. Shaq and Bryant clashed, two alpha males, one silly and the other ultra serious.

Slow down Lebron slurper. No need to jump to conclusions. I have nothing against Lebron. Im just pointing out something ironic. If I or anybody else was only allowed to mention those four legends in their prime then that should have been specified by the one who asked the question, which it was not.

I really loved the idea of Pau and Dirk playing in purple and gold this year.

Far as all time... I wanted desperately for Shaq to get traded for TMac (and the 1st overall pick) who was on the block and ended up being dealt for cheap. I don't think two current scoring title winners have ever been on the same team before and I'd of loved to see it. Especially since both are shooters and should be able to play off each other.

Last one... Iverson and Amare Stoumire would've been beautiful. AI at the point, STAT at the 5. Shooters all around. That team would be insane, and fun to watch.

I believe the poster is talking about who would theoretically form the best duos as leaders of a team. You can't judge does alone; that's not how the game is played.
And yes; even as two players by themselves, Bryant and Olajuwon would smash on Nash and Olajuwon. Bryant wouldn't even need to pass the ball. He'd just score at will.
Nash wouldn't be nearly as good, because he wouldn't have an offense to coordinate – just one other guy. And Bryant would shut him down on the perimeter.

That's debatable, because even in his prime, McGrady was never as durable as Bryant. Health has always been an issue dragging him down. McGrady's best and most durable season was 2002-03, when he played 77 games. Bryant, meanwhile, has had five seasons of at least 80 games, and three with all 82 played.

Well, you would have to remove the conception that McGrady is injury prone since we are speaking hypothetically in the first place. McGrady in his prime would fit in a team better than Bryant because he was just as great of a scorer but had the overall game.

We are jumping down your throat because the OP obviously didn't want to turn this into a typical Jordan/Kobe/Shaq/LBJ thread. Maybe you didn't mean anything by it, but the NBA forum constantly will have 10 threads with 6 of them about LBJ/Kobe ect ect. OP obviously wanted to prevent that, and in the very first page you broke one of his only rules.

Why list no Shaq, Lebron, Jordan, and Duncan and not include Kobe??? Why all this unjustified nutthugging for Lebron? Dumb question. :eyebrow:

Lebron is the only one on that list to need a trio and the best 3 point shooting cast of all time to win a ring. Jordan, Shaq, Kobe, and Duncan all won with much less help and against greater competition. If anything, it should be Jordan, Kobe, Shaq, and Duncan that are unfair to list. Lebron is fair game because of all the help he needed. He has yet to prove he can win with merely a dominant duo... Not the most lopsided trio of all time. The question mark is still out on him as far as I'm concerned.

Lebron is the only one on that list to need a trio and the best 3 point shooting cast of all time to win a ring. Jordan, Shaq, Kobe, and Duncan all won with much less help and against greater competition. If anything, it should be Jordan, Kobe, Shaq, and Duncan that are unfair to list. Lebron is fair game because of all the help he needed. He has yet to prove he can win with merely a dominant duo... Not the most lopsided trio of all time. The question mark is still out on him as far as I'm concerned.

don't turn this into something it's not. those are the 4 guys that came to mind that you could basically drop onto any team (during their peak years) and they immediately become top contenders. they are once in a lifetime type of guys. i could have probably added Magic and Hakeem, just never thought about it.

How about this...

Wade, Bosh, and "insert any legit superstar"... At least one ring for sure... Throw in 5 additional role players who average 45% from 3 and two rings for sure.

Not very subtle, troll. How about this: Kobe and AI. 10 all star game MVPs, zero rings, 10 first round exits.

One that was but should have stayed...TMAC and Vince. Even Kobe said it "if McGrady stayed in TO with Vince it would have been Laker Raptors finals a few times."

Otherwise AI and Hakeem.

Vince would never make it to the Finals.

Mourning + KG
Webber + Stojakovic in their primes were deadly
Grant Hill + T-Mac without injuries
Penny Hardway + Grant Hill without injuries
Pippen + KG
Payton + Duncan
and many more...

I get why we can't use lebron in this tread.

Lebron and wade = no rings
Lebron and bosh = no rings

Lebron wade and bosh = 1 ring

Lebron wade bosh and Allen = 2nd ring

Lebron can't win with just 1 other star player.

Because Jordan+Bosh would've won a ring? Yeah, stop trolling. Also, this is assuming they were in their prime. LeBron with prime Wade would've won for sure.

Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen would have been unstoppable. **** I actually forgot that did happen. But I was thinking more like 8 years earlier. That would have been a lethal combination.

We all know kobe is a gasol type player away from a ring so that's about 50 players on a list some where.

If Nash and Dirk had stayed in Dallas together they would've done some really nasty stuff.

David Robinson ( or Shaq ) and Dirk. Would be some nasty floor spacing.

CP3 and Durant

Shaq & T-Mac

Stockton and Shaq

The best combination in basketball would be a PF and center. Two dominating paint players who can rebound and defend? Can't stop them.

Kobe and KG. There was always a lot of talk of KG ending up in LA until he was shipped to Boston.
