Big threes used to be the thing in the NBA. No more.
It's all about the duos as evidenced by the monumental moves this past off-season that saw Anthony Davis team up with LeBron James in Los Angeles, Russell Westbrook join James Harden in Houston, and Paul George and Kawhi Leonard get themselves to the Clippers. Duos will carry contenders deep into the postseason next spring and help crown a new NBA champion instead of what dominated the league over a decade ago (Boston's big three of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce) and as recently as 2013 (LeBron, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh).
Ranking 'em wasn't easy since there are so many talented tandems these days. But we did our best to give the proper shine to the most dynamic of duos and crown the No. 1 tag team in the league. Argue all you want with who we went with, but when you have two top five players on the same squad, how can a particularly pair in Los Angeles not be the best?
