Default What is the best duo ever in basketball?

What two basketball players were the most impressive duo? Stockton and malone? MJ and pippen? Shaq and Kobe? Dwade and LBJ?

I got MJ and Pippen all day. MJ is two men on the offense and Pippen is two men on the defense.

All time.No.

Relative to era. Yes.
No team has ever had 2 top 3 players on the same team

Wade and Shaq would be. Wade did a lot better with a past-his-prime Shaq who saw 10 minutes less per game in Miami because he had 3 injuries and was well into breaking down as a player.

If a healthy Prime Wade had a Prime shaq for 8 years like Kobe did, then Wade easily wins 5-6 titles within those 8 season instead of just the 3 kobe the stringbean could muster with a Prime shaq

MJ and Pippen until Lebron and Wade start winning multiple rings, which we just can't be sure of as of right now.

Kobe and Shaq had a chance, especially since Kobe was entering his prime toward the later part of the three peat. It's too bad we never got to see the ceiling of those two together. Scary to think about how legendary they could have been.

Shaq and Kobe at their peak playing together were the best, but Jordan and Pippen sustained it for longer, didn't have the same ego problems and they had more talent around them.

In terms of overall body of work, I don't think any other duo can match Jordan and Pippen, and as far as duos at their peak, I don't think any can match Shaq and Kobe on the 2001 and 2002 teams.
