Bill Russell/Karl Malone VS Wilt Chamberlain/Tim Duncan
 
Got the idea from a similar thread, who would win this 2 on 2 matchup and which combo would build a better team?

:biggums:


Side Question, whats the BEST POSSIBLE C/PF pairing of all time?

Chamberlain and Duncan would kill those guys.

Tim schooled Malone head to head (except for his rookie season).

Wilt will provide at least as much offense as Russell will (despite Russell's legendary defense), so with the Duncan dominance over Malone, this one won't really be that close.

I believe Malone's peak was clearly better than Duncan's, tho I would argue that Duncan was more talented.



Wilt is obviously more talented than Russell, but...I don't know. Russell and Malone are easier to build around. Malone is an offensive monster, but yet is a consummate team player, who doesn't need the ball to go thru him for him to get you 30. That's not really answering the question tho.


This one is tough.

Depends on which version of Wilt we're talking about.

More often than not I'd favor Wilt/Tim though. Russell's game doesn't translate well to two on two in my opinion.

If it's a straight 2v2 and not just asking which duo is better, then I would imagine it'd have to be Wilt and Duncan.

67 Wilt mindset at physical peak (Possible if he had a coach he respected and the right team around him)

67' Wilt was a better player than any version of Russell, and peak Duncan is a better player than peak Malone.

I would say that the Wilt/Duncan combo would be the clear favorites. In fact, I'd be surprised if Bill/Karl managed to win any games given a traditional seven game series format.

I really disagree with the Malone/Duncan comment. Unless the 03 run stands alone as an isolated peak.

Chamberlain/Duncan would CRUSH Russell/Malone

I was actually going to say this. Russell's game is 5-on-5. I fail to see what the point would be in putting him in a 2-on-2 situation.

Santa Claus is real and not comparable is ridiculous.



I really can't believe that anyone would think incomparable.

Are street ball rules in play or is it under NBA rules? Street ball Malone will take out Wilt and Tim leading to an easy win for the Karl and Bill Connection.
