5. LeBron James and Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers

Coming in at number five is all-time great, Lebron James, and superstar Anthony Davis. If this ranking was created a few years ago, James and Davis would easily be number one, no questions asked.

However, entering the 2023-24 season, James will turn 39 years old, and Davis, with a lengthy injury history, will turn 31.

Both James and Davis have had great success playing with one another. In AD's first year in Los Angeles, he helped the Lakers win their 17th title. As recent as last season, Davis helped lead the Lakers to the Western Conference Finals.

Of course, this ranking depends on James' longevity and if he can still compete at a high level in his age 39 season. Although James has been slowed by injuries in recent years, he is coming off a season where he averaged 28.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game. A stat line that has never been seen before at such an advanced age.

This duo is the oldest ranking on the list, but both players are consistently fantastic when they're on the floor. And unlike Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, you can count on James and Davis to at least play 40 or more games together every season.
