Colin Cowherd Counts Down His Rankings of the Top 10 Best Duos in the NBA

Portland Trail Blazers v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Four

Top 10 Duos in the NBA according to Colin Cowherd:

10. Russell Westbrook/The Basketball: “He said the ball was his best friend! He obviously struggles with other star players. Westbrook and the ball is still one of the best watches in the NBA.”

9. Giannis/Khris Middleton: “I put them lower because I don’t think Middleton is an All-Star in the West.”

8. Kemba Walker/Jayson Tatum: “I don’t know if this is championship pedigree stuff, but let’s not kid ourselves, Kemba fits, Kemba can score, Kemba is low maintenance, and Tatum is a very good young talent.”

7. Mike Conley/Donovan Mitchell: “These guys both play defense. You’re talking about high IQ, play both ends, and both can shoot. This is the perfect backcourt in Utah.”

6. Luka Doncic/Kristaps Porzingis: “We haven’t seen this before but if Porzingis can stay healthy these guys can be absolutely lethal.”

5. Damian Lillard/CJ McCollum: “It’s hard to make two guards your best players but these guys are selfless and egoless.”

4. Jamal Murray/Nikola Jokic: “These guys are not even in their prime yet. This is the beginning of something big.”

3. LeBron James/Anthony Davis: “Two of the top 5 or 6 players in the league but I don’t know how they work together. LeBron has never been great with bigs.”

2. Steph Curry/Klay Thompson: “The best backcourt of my life who already won a championship without Kevin Durant.”

1. Kawhi Leonard/Paul George: “They averaged 55 a game last year, most by any current duo. Terrific two-way wing players who are both in their primes.”

Notable Duos left off Colin’s rankings: Kevin Durant/Kyrie Irving, James Harden/Chris Paul, Ben Simmons/Joel Embiid.
