- Only zero.
On the eve of the 2020-2021 season, basketball fans are enthusiastic. Despite the falling figures on television, basketball is still strong in the eyes of young Americans, who are fans of today and tomorrow. The vast majority of the appeal of basketball, and the NBA in particular, lies in star culture. People love to hear and see things about their favorite players, and these players are usually stars who are franchisees.
Each NBA franchise has one or two players who are the current faces of their franchise. The NBA parity reached its highest level last season, and rivals like Bax and the Lakers have taken steps to strengthen their schedules. With this new excitement and a large number of chords the duo list could show who is the best. We offer you the evaluation of the best competition duets for the next season.
30. RJ Barrett & Mitchell Robinson (Curtsey)
(about the Daily Knicks)
RJ Barrett and Mitchell Robinson can still be star players. They need to develop, and next year could be a great opportunity. This is one of the wettest duets of the league; both are elite prospects, but not quite with a star. But with coach Tibodo in New York, they have plenty of opportunities to touch the ball: Tibodo likes athletic baseball players and defensive centers; Barrett and Robinson meet these criteria and should have enough playing time.
29. Andre Drummond and Kevin Love (men)
Apart from that, Drummond and Love could work as adults in rival teams. The Love-Dramond duo isn’t that great together. They came last in the Eastern Conference last season, and it doesn’t look like things are going to change any time soon. The Twin Towers line is difficult to perform well; apart from the dramatic evolution of chemistry or the development of Collin Sexton’s playing art that feeds this line, this duo has not reached the top in terms of Twin Towers quality.
28. LaMelo Ball & Gordon Hayward (Hornets)
Is LaMelo’s bat getting too big? Maybe, but who cares? It may be too high-handed for a totally inexperienced duo, but they have an undeniable advantage. LaMelo Ball plans to become a playmaker with all the tools in his pocket; Gordon Hayward can return to All Star status with great flair. With a few moves (or maybe even without) Charlotte Horts can take the bets down in the playoffs. This duo works well on paper, but will have to prove it on the field next season.
27. Nicola Vuchevich and Evan Fournier (Magic)
Nikola Vuchevich and Evan Fournier scored some pretty good goals and would have been amazing options for the tertiary sector in teams like the Raptors or the Pacers. If those two are leading the team, then unfortunately the team has a greater commitment in the first round. Their defense is bad and the competition has the best bombers. Orlando has participated in the qualifiers in recent years, so this ranking is consistent with that fact. Someone will say that these two teams should be lower: but at least they have made the playoffs this year, against 4 out of 5 teams that are lower than them.
26. Buddy Hild and De’Aaron Fox (Kings)
Buddy Hild and De’Aaron Fox almost made the playoffs a few years ago, but they took a dramatic step back. The franchise has extended the play-off drought to 14 years, and fans are looking forward to the competition. Hild and Fox offer excellent chances to score points, and Fox in particular has yet to make a leap forward to become a star. The child can improve his or her protection and restore his or her creation in seclusion from the environment. Both members of this duo should make improvements, but what they have to do is very simple. Because kings are exciting, they have to develop to be competitive.
25. Shay Gilgis-Alexander and Al Horford (Thunder)
Oklahoma City Thunder is rebuilding. Their team has lost big players like Chris Paul and Danilo Gallinari, and the two best players on the team are proof of that. While Shay Gilgius-Alexander is a stallion, Al Horford reduces the value of the duo. Horford had a bad year with 76 players, but still managed to play at an acceptable level. As long as there is no major leap in the Gilgius-Alexander or Al-Horford Renaissance, this duo is not far from the bottom of the valley.
24. Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin (piston)
The Pistons have two former stars in Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin. The Pistons would have been excited if the league had returned to 2011, when both players were in top form. Although they are both highly qualified players, injuries have had a negative impact on their sporting performance. Rose and Griffin are in last place because they are just getting older with the coming season and Griffin already fell last season.
23. Zack Avalanche and Laurie Markkanen (bulls)
Credit: Connecting points
It was Zack Lavine who brought this duo to 21st place. LaVine had a great year in terms of points and playing ability; even with a cheeky coach, LaVine found a way to show large numbers.
Laurie Markkkanen has taken a small step back, but if you attribute this to his lower occupancy rate under Jim Boylen, you can see the time scale on which he bounces back to be a marksman in the PF position. With a development coach like Billy Donovan, this duo can get even better next season.
22. Carl Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell (Timberwolves)
Maybe this duo from Minnesota has too high a score, but the potential for this duo to be good is there. Recently, both cities and Russell have formed all-star teams, and both have scored excellent goals in basketball. With the new head of the front office of Gersson Rosas, the basis for building a team around the duo has already been laid. Towns and Russell could be the next batter to lead the league, but they could also make mistakes, as Minnesota has done in recent years. If those two stars make another jump, you expect them to make the playoffs.
Both players are young and could be in the top five of the league duets in the future. But now they’re neither confirmed nor tested: A regular season, the Timberwolves in the playoffs and a better defense should goal the duo for the coming season.
21. DeMar DeRosan and LaMarcus Aldridge (traces)
DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge could have reached the top 15 duets if it had been 2004, but instead these middle class maestros got stuck in the 3rd and D. DeRozan and Aldridge both occupy the top layer in the arch and in creating their image in the same situation.
Gregg Popovich tried to build an attack around them, but the gap between them was small and they peaked with seven games in the first round of nuggets. It’s a different duet where players can work better in different teams because their skills overlap.
20. Yes Morant and Years Jackson Jr. (Grizzly)
CHAPTER : Memphis’ dynamic new duo is exciting for the fans of the future. Getty Pictures
Yes Morant and Years Jackson Jr. were one of the most exciting duets of the season. Unfortunately Jackson Jr. is injured and Morant Grizzly can’t get through the Trailblazers to the play-offs. However, they need to take serious action next year.
Although Jackson Jr. is currently traumatized as soon as his wound is healed, he should regain his full form and improvement is expected. This duo has a high potential and if one of the Western teams takes a step back in qualifying, bet on this duo and Grizzly as your favorite to overtake them.
19. Domantas Sabonis and Malcolm Brogdon (Paceurs)
The top two players of the Pacers in the overall standings are in 20th place, but it should be remembered that the Pacers are more of a basketball team, so their duo will not have an inflated pole like some others. This duo led the Pacers to the playoffs: If the Sabonis hadn’t been injured, the Pacers Heat could have made for more fighting spirit. This duo goes well together; Brogdon is a leader and a sniper, while Sabonis is a great passer-by who likes to hit.
This duo may be underestimated, but until we see that they both play an injury-free regular season, they will be in an inferior position just because of their accessibility. Brogdon and Sabonis would easily reach the top 15 if they could play longer for the Pacers.
18. Tray Young and John Collins (The Falcons)
Trey Young and John Collins have been signed by some to make the play-offs in 2020: They didn’t go all the way, but this year’s gonna be the year. These two will undoubtedly make another jump in the attack unit, Tray Young is already an MVP player: It’s his defense that’s holding him back. John Collins is also a mediocre defender of the big man. But with another off-season below their belt, this duo will show why the Atlanta Hawks have chosen to compete.
This year the East will be more competitive: Many teams from the East have come in, and now teams like the Hawks and Wizards have found a way to make the playoffs. If the Hawks can only use the skills of their duo in self-defense, the playoffs are within their reach.
17. Devin Booker and Chris Paul (Suns)
Chris Paul joins Devin Booker in Phoenix. This duo is one of the newest and most exciting. Chris Paul has shown that he can still lead the team with OCC Thunder. Paul is still one of the best defenders with clean sheets in the game and is now associated with an electric marker at Devin Booker. A pair on the other side of their basketball career is designed to be perfect on the pitch if Paul can stay as healthy as he was last season.
This duo could lead Phoenix Sans to the playoffs. They have two young stars, and they added Chris Paul to finish the big three. Eaton could have taken Paul’s place here, but Senior Point Guard is also part of this duo because of his proven ability to win, which Eaton has not demonstrated.
16. Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram (pelicans)
Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram were already looking for a play-off spot this year: but they had a terrible blister that gave the other teams a chance to do so. Next year, with a fresh start, this duo can really make it. Brandon Ingram won the 2019-2020 Best Player Award, and Zion Williamson looks like a castle to be improved on after an excellent rookie season. If the pelican duo thrive under a new coach next season, he will be able to bring the pelicans the same amount of seed as the 6 in the Western Conference.
Zion Williamson is the most exciting prospect since q LeBron James, and Brandon Ingram already looks like a flexible prospect. The Moon is the limit of this duo’s potential, and next season they’ll show how far they’ve come in realizing that potential.
15. Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siacam (Raptors)
Toronto seems to have been underestimated lately from the point of view of the actors. It’s probably real: Lowry moisture in the 7th. Playing against the Celtics, and Siacam’s overall performance with the bubble, softened many people’s opinion of the duo. The Raptors duo can make a difference this year by showing why they were on the list of champions only a few years ago. As the Raptors enter a new era and Kyle Lowry ages, Siacam will continue to hold the line.
Can Siacam show that he really is an NBA player and can Kyle Lowry challenge his age? This is the biggest problem for the Raptors, but Masai Ujiri believes in his players: If Lowry wanted to trade, the deal would have been made a long time ago. If the Raptors can surpass last year’s Siacam climb and another good year for Lowry, the Raptors can surprise many fans.
14. Donovan Mitchell and Rudi Robert (Jazz)
Maybe this ranking doesn’t make sense for the team that played the Nuggets seven games: but Jazz is the first series of releases in the last two years and their duo seems to have been a hit. Of course, Donovan Mitchell is still young and he can still improve. Robert is still a defensive force, but he could have been at his peak. In short, this Utah Jazz team has a lot of questions. But the Utah Jazz duo still has time, and we could see Mitchell at the sniper elite before the end of the year.
Despite the fact that the duo bounced back from several opponents at the beginning of the qualifications, there is still hope for next year. Robert has a one year contract with the motivation to play well, while Mitchell is ready to go even further.
13. Damien Lillard and C.J. McCollum (Blazers)
Credit: Getty Pictures
Every year, the competition underestimates Damien Lillard and C.J. McCollum. However, the ranking in the top ten could be too high. The reason for this is that the Trail Blazers reached the finals of the Western Conference in 2019 and were injured. Most of the problems on their list were caused by these injuries, so the performance of McCollum and Lillard in 2020 does not match their regular seasonal capacities.
This duo performs every year around the same time. The fate of this duo this season and the way forward will depend on Damian Lillard’s ability to beat the best players in the league.
12. Luca Doncic and Cristap Porzinges (outlier)
Luca Doncic has already made a name for herself in the NBA this year. Next year he has to become one of the best players in the world. Luca Doncic is one of the next big names, and the fact that he has brought the Clippers to six games against Kavi Leonard shows that he is not afraid to tackle other superstars. As a duo Donsik and Porcigis will probably feel better next year, as long as they both stay healthy.
If Porzingis manages to stay healthy and make room for Luka Dončić, this team could easily make it into the top five in the West. Soic can work when he’s playing the Porzinzian. If Donsik continues the meteorite rise, the pigs will only need light feed. The decisive factor is the pig, and if it exceeds expectations, the outsiders are rewarded.
11. Jason Tatum and Jailen Brown (Celts)
(on Houdini hardwood)
Jason Tatum and Jaylen Brown are two two-movement wings that were demolished this year. This is a blessing for the Celts, for both must be signed for many years. The Young Celtics are a duo that can bring down some of the most famous names in the NBA. Under his leadership, they reached the finals of the Eastern Conference twice, losing to Jarrah Jimmy Butler in 2020 and to LeBron James Cavaliers in 2018.
The development of Celtic wings heralds the future, also this season. Each of them can score 20 PPGs and protect some of the best players of the other team. If one of them can improve his game to relieve Kemba Walker, he will go to the next level.
10. Ben Simmons and Joel Ambiad (76 persons)
(via Bleacher Report)
Ben Simmons and Joel Ambiid were next, after almost beating Toronto in 2019. Despite the promising results, Ben Simmons was injured before the 2020 qualifying campaign and lost to the Celtics. Joel Ambiid is an incredible athlete who can score on any level, and the distance between floors should not exceed the pass height. We know that if Joel Ambiid has the right distance and the right teammates, he can become an elite player at almost MVP level (27.5 PPG and 13.6 RPG in 2019).
The development of Ben Simmons will be crucial for the duo in the future. The success of Embiid requires floor space, and it’s hard to improve the floor space if your co-star can’t score from the outside of the color. When Ben Simmons and Joel Ambiad are at work and their shooters are unfired, this duo is designed for a successful season.
9. Steven Curry and Andrew Wiggins (Warriors)
Warrior fans applaud: Stephen Curry’s back. But in his season, he has no accomplice, Clay Thompson. The man who will take on the role this season is Andrew Wiggins, a mysterious striker who has not yet fully realised his announced potential. This duo can be a bit too high; as far as we know Warriors like last year can be bad, and Stephen Curry might not be able to wear them. But Stephen Curry is a former MVP; he agrees. We do not question curry unless there is a reason, and this note reflects that.
Andrew Wiggins will do or break this duet. He’s under pressure to finally be a friend, but his role is made easier for the Warriors. We’re just asking Wiggins to score points, that’s all. He doesn’t have to play much, he just has to score and he’ll do it.
8. James Harden and John Wall (rockets)
James Harden is still one of the best players in the league. Team Harden is almost guaranteed to make the play-offs, and that’s no different this year. Harden will always be an elite striker, and if the Rockets have a good regular season. The X factor is John Wall. Russell Westbrook was a great player in the regular season, but he was replaced because he couldn’t play in the play-offs. If Wall is back in his old uniform, this team can be intimidating.
Wall was a play-off performer who was confronted with a series of devastating injuries. If the wall is really healthy, this Rocketts team will still be a play-off team, even if they lose in the second round. The wall will determine the quality of this team.
7. Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beale (wizard)
Russell Westbrook is an elite player who led the team to the playoffs and reached the finals with Kevin Durant. At Westbrook, getting Wizards means getting an NBA player if he’s healthy. Westbrook is good at everything except archery. Which brings us to the second part of this duet, Bradley Beale. Bradley Beale is the best SG in the league, and his All Stars teammate has been injured most of last season. He can fire the bullet while Westbrook’s driving.
The replacement of Westbrook means that the Wizards now want to help Bradley Beale win. Instead of waiting for what they had with John Wall, the Wizards traded him in for an ex-MVP. This duo will easily make the playoffs in the east, and if they get along well with their teammates, they will be able to go even further.
6. Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo (Heather)
After the NBA final, it’s official: Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo arrived as a duo. Butler is an attacker who can handle any position; Adebayo is a great athlete who can adapt well and score in the transition. The duo defeated the reigning MVP and brought Lebron James to the finals with six games. It’s hard to overthrow the king, but the heat made a brave attempt. Adebayo and Butler must continue to develop their chemistry.
There is not much to say about this duo, except that they are great basketball players: Both are fundamentally healthy, selfless and defensive. They might make it to the finals, but winning is another matter. Butler is probably the player he is and will not develop further. He runs into Adebayo to fill in the holes.
5. Kirie Irving and Kevin Durant (networks)
Kirie Irving and Kevin Durant go from trauma to a new coaching system. Maybe they shouldn’t be placed over Luca Doncic. Bringing Durant a little further than the top five is fair, considering his performance, record and injury history. If Durant is in good health and is the same as before Achilles’ injury, the duo’s score may change in the future. The risk is there, but Durant is a former MVP and one of the greats; the greats never doubt.
A clear problem for the network is the health of Durant. If Durant’s shot should remain comparable to a slight loss of athletics, the question remains whether he will be as mobile as a fullback and whether he is still fast enough to enter as a guard. Another question is how Durant is going to play with Irving. Even if there are doubts, sometimes talent is talent, and this duo is in place 6.
4. Giannis Antetokunmpo and Chris Middleton (Bax)
The MVP in power and his co-star have entered room 5. Giannis Antetokunmpo has been disappointed with the play-offs since he got the MVP status. This year, the Greek monster will experience a season of revenge to silence anyone who doubts. The status of this duo in the top five can be low given that they were only number one in the Eastern Conference last season. But two years of unsatisfying play-off appearances brought them down.
This duo lives or dies together with Giannis Antetokunpo. Will a Greek superstar be able to fulfill his wish in the preliminaries of this season? Could Chris Middleton be the clutch? The duo is consistent, but they have to reach the next level to reach the play-offs. With the revival of Jrue Holiday, the life of this duo in the coming season will be much easier on both sides.
3. Nikola Yokich and Jamal Murray (nuggets)
Nikola Yokich and Jamal Murray are the third duo on this list. The duo led their team to victory against the Clippers in seven games, but then quickly lost to the Lakers in five games. They are part of that top group of NBA-duos and can grow even further. They need to become more consistent; their high level of play only started when their team fell 3-1. To reach the finals of the Western Conference, the other participants needed good results, and the Clippers were very late. If Jokik and Murray can play as if they were 3-1 down all the time, they can become a pair of the top two players in the league.
If Jokik and Murray continue their development, they can go to the finals together. They know they have the potential to defeat an opponent like the Clippers, which makes them a top duo. Another question is whether they can beat other teams with a great transcendent man like the Lakers. Consistency is the key, and when they do what they did again, they go up in the rankings.
2. Caviar Leonard and Paul George (Clippers)
(about sport in general)
Kavi Leonard and Paul George form an excellent duo. The entire register of the lawnmower failed, resulting in his death. Kavi Leonard is the fixed half of this duo: He goes in, scores points and plays the best player of the opponent. Leonard – that’s why this duo moved to second place. In the Clippers he had to cover up the unsatisfactory behaviour of his teammate Paul George. Kavi Leonard can take the team to the championship: That depends on Paul George, who has to intervene if Leonard plays badly.
If this duo can perform at a high level, they easily become the second best duo in the competition. They lost the duo Murray-Jokich by seven points, but they can easily come back and beat them in the second leg if they recover 3-1. Leonard is a well-known factor: Paul George just has to show the same game that made him an MVP candidate in 2019. The clippers seem to have full confidence in the impact.
1. Lebron James and Anthony Davis (Lakers)
The duo that is in power and has won the championship is in first place. Lebron James and Anthony Davis are the best couple in the league and their way to the play-offs looked pretty easy. It didn’t look like they were going to lose, and they both showed why they wouldn’t sleep on it during the regular season. The Lakers were number one in the West, with a duo at the head.
Perfect fit in the area between them. Anthony Davis is a great man who can do anything on the field, while Lebron James is a force of nature that only super teams can stop. With Anthony Davis, LeBron James has found the ideal racing partner to build a culture of continuous victory. This is his first championship and it doesn’t look like this will be his last duet. The fact that they won the championship under extreme conditions during the pandemic shows how important these two were; what more can you say?
