Magic and Kareem maybe. But Lebron and Davis are so much better than the Shaq and O
Kobe duo simply because both of them are infinitely better than the version of Kobe that played with Shaq.

I never understood why some people have Kareem and Magic as the best duo ever. Do people realize that they never played together in their prime? By the time Magic peaked as a basketball player, Kareem wasn't even averaging 20 points a game, and from '83-'86 Kareem was only putting 22 a game and was always criticized for his lack of rebounding and defense. I mean, they are still a top 5 duo ever, but the greatest? Not even close.

Um, 2000-2002 Shaq not better than current LeBron? What the hell are you talking about? Shaq had one of the greatest peaks we have ever seen. We have never seen a duo as good as 2001 Shaq & Kobe.

They might well be. They're definitely better than shaq and Kobe. As are Davis and Lebron.

Sorry, 2001 & 2002 Shaq & Kobe are better than any version of Magic & Kareem, and it's not even close.

Shaq played with Kobe till 2004 and by the end he wasnt the same player. If you're ending it at 2002, he is better than current lebron.

Either way, the difference between prime shaq and prime Davis is smaller than the difference between current lebron and that version of Kobe.
We've seen multiple duos greater than shaq and Kobe. Jordan and pippen. Magic and Kareem. Here is a third. Kobe was just not quite good enough to make that duo as great as some of these.

Sorry. Both Kobe wasnt as great as either magic or Kareem. And the magic ad Kareem duo was much better than the shaq and Kobe one. A one man wrecking machine in Shaq carrying a 40% finals scorer in Kobe doesnt make a great duo.

No, if you are talking longevity then that is another story, but like I said, when the duos were at their peak when playing together, nobody touches Shaq & Kobe.

You are wrong, calling current LeBron better than peak Shaq is moronic.
