Default Re: O.J. Mayo and Allen Iverson Will Be the Best Backcourt in the NBA

Mayo is the exact type of player that AI would not work with. You need a defensive minded player to pair with AI in the backcourt. The offense is going to have issues getting started its going to become stagnant. Expect a lot of iso's and expect a lot of people watching bc none of these guys move well without the ball including Gay and Zach.

there going to be one of the best. I'm not sure if they will be the best. They will be the most fun to watch though by far.

...and which one's the point guard?

When healthy, how about Manu and Tony Parker as best backcourt.

I would definately say they are in the top 3, Nelson and carter are gonna be great, Rondo and allen work well. I also think Rose and salmons will work together nicely.

How do two guys not in the top 15 at their position individually who both play the same position form a good back court?

Mayo is top 2-3 in his position. He is better than Roy. On par with Wade. The only man standing in Mayo way as GOAT is Kobe Bean Bryant,

Listen, fellas...lets see what happens first before we start concluding that AI and Mayo and Gay and Randolph wont work. We know the history, but people can change. Give them a shot and see what happens
