Default Ranking Duos: ELITE scoring SGs w/ Jack of All Trade SFs

Elite scoring SGs with jack of all trades SFs, in a team setting which of these duos is best?

Also if you can, rank them ...

Jordan ('91) w/ LeBron (2013)

Kobe (2006) w/ Pippen ('94)

Drexler ('92) w/ Garnett (2004)

Wade (2009) w/ Hill ('96)

Penny ('96) w/ McGrady (2003)

Mitch ('97) w/ Bird ('87)

Edit: Added Mitch and Bird combo, please re-rank fellas. My apologies.

Let's not.

I said elite SCORING SGs, and Jack of All Trade SFs. Jason Kidd is a PG. And Nique is primarily a scoring SF, much like Melo.

The only one that somewhat breaks the mold is the Penny / McGrady combo, but it fits in much nicer than Kidd / Nique. Penny played both guard spots and could score. McGrady was like an all around player like current Paul George, but could score too.

Please, rank them based off the duos I present. Nothing more. I want to see your opinion.

Kidd can be seen as a JOAT player (just not a 3) and Wilkins an elite SG. But yeah... it's not specific to the SF position like the OP asked. But then again, Penny was a PG so ...

04 Garnett was a Power Forward. But to answer,

Jordan/James
Drexler /Garnett
Bryant/Pippen
Wade/Hill
Hardaway/Mcgrady

Peak Pippen> Peak Hill
Peak Kobe>Peak Wade

Penny played PG, SG, and SF. TMac played small forward but sometimes was at the SG spot.

Kidd didn't play SG and certainly wasn't an elite scorer. Nique played SF almost exclusively and he wasn't a do it all forward like the others mentioned.

No, no. Just flip it. Wilkins was an elite scorer and Kidd was a Jack-Of-All-Trades

Agreed that Penny was a JOAT also.

Exactly. Not to mention Kidd was 6'4 and an excellent defender.

Not trying to disrespect them by no inclusion. Everything I've read about both is fascinating but I wanted to keep it modern and for players we've all seen in context. I'm quite fond of West, btw.
