Re: What would be the best duo?
If I'm picking a perimeter player and big guy who each can literally have all the bases covered on offense, versatility, and defense, then I gotta go with MJ and Hakeem. KG was close to being my big, but I gotta have Dream's dominance on the block.
If I'm picking the best fit, then Bird and Shaq would be EPIC! Bird could space the floor great and he's also arguably the greatest passing forward ever. Shaq is a great passer outta of double teams off the block. It's a perfect fit and Bird can also help Shaq on the boards as well. Bird can even slide to the PF and drop sick dimes from the high post to Shaq. Shaq could still kick out to Bird in the midrange-elbow area to do damage.
In terms of the most physically dominant permieter-big man tandem, u gotta go with Lebron-Shaq! In terms of pairing a great PG who can pass great and shoot great along with a great player who's a stretch PF, then look no further than Nash-Dirk!
