Hold on, before you start flipping out understand this… Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire are not, and will not ever be one of the greatest NBA Duos of All-Time. However, their picture is there because they inspired this blog.
Lately, we’ve seen a lot of superstars uniting forces. This trend looks as if it is here to stay for quite some time. With that said, I can promise you the following…. I do not think any of the guys that unite today will be better than the 5 duos you are about to see..
Take a look….
They didn’t win a championship. I know that hurts their cause… BUT, John Stockton holds the record for most assists and steals in the HISTORY of the game. Karl Malone had the second most points in NBA HISTORY. They were on the same team, and they wouldn’t be where they are without each other. Stats don’t lie.
This duo won championships. Three of them! Unfortunately, we cannot put three people on this one, but Robert Parrish was a huge part of their championship run. Bird and McHale were the perfect compliments at small forward and forward. Both are easily regarded as one of the best all-time at their respective positions.
I put these two here against my will because I don’t like either guy. The two are obviously two of the greatest players of all-time with Kobe being probably a top 4 guy. They won three championships in 8 seasons, which is very impressive. Both are all-time guys in terms of NBA records. Oh well, I had to do it.
We all know I’m biased. See number 1. But for my money there is no player more intriguing than Magic Johnson. It’s hard for me not to put these two number 1. They won titles, MVPs, and what’s better is they were perfect compliments to each other. One could argue these two as both top 5 players of all-time. I’m sorry. You know how it is with…………
If you read my stuff, you knew this was coming. Michael Jordan is the greatest player of all-time. Scottie Pippen is one of the top 50. 6 Championships in 9 Seasons. Scoring titles, All-NBA teams, Defensive Teams and Players of the Year. Argue this one with me.. I dare you!
