NBA Fans Argue What Is The Greatest Duo Of All Time: "Only One Of Them Won 6 Rings"

NBA Fans Argue Who Is The Greatest Duo Of All Time: "Only One Of Them Won 6 Rings"

The debates in basketball are endless. Whether it is to discuss the greatest player of all time or the greatest team of all time, people can always find endless reasons to justify what they believe in. Basketball has been a mainstay of barbershop talk for generations and it hasn't stopped in the social media age.

With the ability to interact with millions at the click of a button, those barbershop debates have migrated over to platforms like Twitter where fans of every fanbase can make their arguments. As a result, people always keep stoking the flames and there is always a new debate to join in.

The latest one started by Overtime discusses the greatest duo in NBA history. The options are pretty obvious, as it pits Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal, Kevin Durant and Steph Curry, and LeBron James and Dwyane Wade against each other. But what did the fans say?

What this reinforces is that there can never be a truly unanimous answer to a question like this. But it is safe to say people would prefer MJ and Pippen or Shaq and Kobe over the other duos presented. After all, MJ and Pip completed two three-peats, while Shaq and Kobe completed one three-peat.

The Miami Heat, with LeBron and Dwyane Wade, failed to win three in a row, and by the end of their four-year stint, it was LeBron's team and less of a dynamic duo. Same with KD and Curry, as injuries ruined their three-peat and Durant would leave Curry after just three seasons together.

There are more iconic duos that the original post didn't even mention, like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson, or Tim Duncan and Tony Parker. People that believe those are the best duos will always believe the same and these discussions are usually just talking points for people who love basketball and want to discuss it with each other.
