Default Re: Rank the new duos and how they will perform

Cris Bosh?

Wow.

Anyways, ignoring your stupidity, I wont rank them, just do a quick write up on them.

a) Chris Paul and Emeka Okafor

What Paul did with Chandler was amazing. This duo will be dominant on both ends. I like the looks of a West/Okafor front court, too. This trade really helped the Hornets.

b) Hedo Turkoglu and Chris Bosh

I find this combo very interesting. 2 bigger guys who can shoot from the outside well. I think they will be problematic to guard. Although I question Turkeyglues consistency, and I hope he works well along Bosh

c) Andre Miller and Brandon Roy

Ehhh, not one of the best combos, although Miller will be interesting with the Blazers. I actually totally forgot about this signing. Obviously Roy a top 3 SG will make this duo all the better.

d) Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion

Not one of the best duos. Marion is about done, so Dirk really carries the load with this duo. If Marion has an above average season, I think this duo will turn some heads.

e) Lebron James and Shaquille O'Neal

Another one of the not as good duos. People(homers) tend to forget Shaq was only good last year with the Suns medical staff. With another year under his belt and losing the GOAT medical staff? Ehh. Although I think he IS an upgrade over Big Z, so that helps LBJ alot for his title push this year(although the title belongs to the Magic)

f) Vince Carter and Dwight Howard

I think this is the best duo. The Magic slowly turned into one of the more exciting teams with the additions of Carter and Williams(if healthy, of course). I cant wait to watch the Magic next year, because they will be kicking serious ass. A 60-67 win season is in store, I think.

Chris Paul and Emeka Okafor


I think they will mostly benefit from the new pairing.. Okafor can do a lot more than people can give him credit for, and Paul will be the best pg hes ever worked with..

Default Re: Rank the new duos and how they will perform

1. Hedo Turkoglu & Chris Bosh
2. Vince Carter & Dwight Howard
3. Chris Paul & Emeka Okafor
4. LeBron James & Shaquille O'Neal
5. Dirk Nowitzki & Shawn Marion
6. Andre Miller & Brandon Roy

This is strictly for meshing together/chemistry. As to which duo will contribute the most to their teams success... that's a whole other question.

Default Re: Rank the new duos and how they will perform

i dont think D will be much of a duo. Dallas belongs to Dirk and Kidd/Jet

the Dallas duo should be Dirk/Kidd or Dirk/Jet

Except for the fact that it's meant to be new duos.
