I once wrote a piece on the NBA’s top 5 duos of all-time and it seemed to spark a nice buzz for debate. Readers love to skim through lists and provide their own sense of opinion, especially when you’re writing about talented combos, such as Magic and Kareem, or Stockton and Malone. The debates can become heated and ideas will bounce back and forth.
#5:Carmelo Anthony/Amar’e Stoudemire
Easily one of the more talented duos in the entire league. The big “IF” for Melo and Stat is cohesion. Can these two stars put it together and stay on the same page for 82 games? I firmly believe that if they find a way to completely mesh and stay healthy, they’d make the Knickerbockers a true contender in the East. The problem seems to be their inability to be productive without the ball in hand. This happens when you pair two stars who score a ton and aren’t particularly skilled passers. The dreaded stretches where the rock just quits moving.
It’s give and take that will set ...
