Yeah, Sprewell was declining, but still a solid player. KG was at his peak and the best player in the game and Cassell had a career year. They probably would have won a title if not for Cassell's injury. At least I think they would have, a lot of that is because of how great KG was(only Shaq in 2000 came closer to a unanimous MVP than KG in 2004), but Cassell was actually an all-nba second team player that season and had two 40 point playoff games, but got injured. I thought about them, but probably didn't consider them enough. For now, they definitely deserve an honorable mention at least.

2005 Duncan/Manu could be higher. At least 6, IMO.

This trio will never get the proper credit because of a few things...

1. The East was seen as a graveyard during their runs.

2. The teams that they faced (Lakers/Spurs) basically flexed their muscles on them. NJ was never seen as a favorite to win anything.

JKidd leading his team to 2 straight Finals appearances should get respect, though. He made Jefferson and Martin.

Webber / Peja / Bibby

Arenas / Jamison / Butler

also, Nash/Amare should be one of the top duos

Wade/Shaq in both years > Kobe/Gasol. Shaq is just that much more impactful.

Shaq and Kobe were so good, you might as well just add whoever with him and put them in the trio list as well.

Why the *** are the Suns ahead of the Spurs so many times? Spurs won 4 chips..

SPURS should have 4 of the top 6 spots, sharing with Boston and Detroit.

Good point, Nash and Amare do deserve to rank high as a duo, not sure where to put them, gotta think about it.

Those Kings teams were ridiculously stacked. Webber missed the first 20 games of the 2001-2002 season and Peja starts off the season averaging 23 ppg on insane efficiency. Then Bibby is averaging like 20+ ppg in the playoffs when Peja went down and Webber was a 25/10/5 big man back then and probably the best passing big man in the league.

That's pretty much true. They were averaging 60/22/9 combined during the 2001 playoffs. That's pretty good numbers for a trio by themselves.

Pierce and KG was a killer duo in 08
