Honorable Mention: Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant – Brooklyn
This one has to be honorable mention just because we won’t get to see the pair play probably at all this year. With two real elite players playing together in this case, the Brooklyn Nets have inserted themselves into the top tier of Eastern Conference teams this year, and really the top tier of the entire league.
Barring all injuries, the Brooklyn Nets star duo would have probably fallen into the top 2-3 on this list. KD is one of the single most dominant players in the league, but it could be really interesting trying to get him to pair comfortably with Kyrie Irving. Not sure this pair makes the most sense overall.
HM: Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson – Golden State
Another honorable mention should probably get to be in the list considering the number of times we have seen them play together already. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson make up the backcourt known as the “Splash Brothers”. A fitting name for the single best shooting teammate pair in NBA history.
Steph and Klay would most definitely be in the top 3-4 this year as well. Although they have been so good over the past several years together, this new era of star duos changes things up just a little. I am no longer sure where these two rank compared to the star-studded NBA pairs of today.
