Better NBA duo: Durant-Irving or James-Davis?
The scales in the NBA have shifted thanks to Durant and Irving. That's the kind of thing that happens when two athletes in their prime get together.
When Durant gets healthy, he and Irving will form one of the most lethal scoring combinations in the NBA. Durant is a 7'0 guard with an unblockable shot and limitless range while Irving can get to the rim at will with a killer dribble and the ability to creatively finish around the rim. Together, there isn't a defense that can stop both of them.
Durant and Irving might be the hottest names right now, but Anthony Davis teaming up with LeBron James still represents the greatest combining of stars this offseason.
James is older, but he is still putting MVP numbers and is just as unstoppable on his drives. His intelligence and court vision are only getting better, and it will come in handy finding Anthony Davis around the basket. Davis is also a monster in his own regard, bringing All-Defensive team-caliber work and elite all-around scoring ability. Not only can those two score, but they can lock you down.
