With two Milwaukee Bucks headed to the All-Star Game in Chicago, how do they rank against the other dominant duos in the NBA?
For the second consecutive season, the Milwaukee Bucks will have two star players representing the franchise in the All-Star Game.
With Giannis Antetokounmpo as captain and Khris Middleton joining him during a particularly strong run of form, the Bucks can proudly claim to have one of the most formidable pairings of any team at the event.
Wider discussions about the NBA’s duos will almost certainly crop up amongst fans and in the media in the run-up to the big game this week, as many of those pairings are set to take part.
Many teams across the NBA have been able to bring in talent, or more importantly develop two players that can play next to each other and dominate opposing line ups.
Dominant duos have been a feature in the NBA for decades, with historic pairings such as Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, Bob Cousy and Bill Russell, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, and Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant all immediately coming to mind.
Some of the league’s current best duos will be appearing in the All-Star Game on February 16. With that in mind, let me take you through my personal rankings of the league’s four best, three of which will be playing in Chicago next week.
