Default best Pg/C combinations

Rank these young pg/c combination now, and how they will develop as players and as teammates over the next few years:

-Rose/Noah
-Rondo/Perk
-Harris/Brooks
-Mayo/Gasol
-Bayless/Oden

Feel free to add any other pg/c combos you'd like to compare.

Right now:
1.Rondo/Perk
2.Rose/Noah
3.Mayo/Gasol
4.Harris/Brooks
5.Bayless/Oden

Future:
1. Rose/Noah
2. Mayo/Gasol
3. Rondo/Perk
4. Harris/Brooks
5. Bayless/Oden

I think Rose and Noah will grow together and become the best combination of scoring, hustle and defense. Mayo will be the best scorer of these players and Gasol will be a nice well-rounded counterpart to him, but Mayo won't ever be the pg that Rose or Rondo are. Rondo/Perk gets third because while they are the best defensively, they are probably the weakest on the offensive side. Rondo's jumper is still shaky and Perk only has a few post moves. Harris and Brooks are an interesting combo, and would be higher, but I don't see too much untapped potential in Harris. Oden and Bayless are last because of the injury problems of Oden and Bayless's poor offensive efficiently.

Damn, people really must look down upon Williams/Shaq. No mention of them and Bayless/Oden is ranked higher...

No Parker/Duncan either... WTF is wrong people! There's several that should be considered... that haven't been mentioned

Williams/Boozer or Okur
Williams/Shaq
Parker/Duncan
Ellis/Biedreis
Bibby/Horford
Paul/Okafor

...just to name a few...

Eh, I left off Nelson/Howard, Cp3/Okafor and Deron/Okur because I wanted to go with younger more unproven players.

I like Harris / Lopez as a combination, I think it is arguably the best-rounded pair you listed. Both are feasibly All Stars for a few seasons.

Rose / Noah is very one-sided, Rose will be an All Star but I doubt Noah ever will be.

Bayless / Oden is too unproven, and one-sided towards Oden.

Mayo / Gasol isn't really a PG / C combo, Mayo is so far only tried & tested as a shooting guard. He may well be an All Star, but Gasol is unlikely to be - I don't see that much potential in him.

Rondo / Perkins is arguably the most accomplished pair right now, but Perkins is limited defensively and won't be an All Star - Rondo should be.

So there you have it, Harris / Lopez is the most balanced duo and IMO the best.

I'm sure Oden had something to do with it. Conley isn't too bad though and really improved toward the end of last season. He had some nice 20 point games and even a 30 point game IIRC. His fg% was also much higher, he kept it closer to 50% toward the end of the season. For the season he did average 44%fg with over 40% from 3 and over 80% from the line.
