    Paul and Griffin would be doing a much better if not for some disconnected and simmed games.

    But even with that, and apart from blocks, looks like they're the most dangerous tandem statistically.

    Homer Pick!

    Just KD and Russell Westbrook's over all games compliment one another so well. When Durant is on, Westbrook can burn you as you try to double. Westbrook is arguably more dangerous as a 2 and KD is a monster when placed at the 4. Their versatility is limitless.

    That said, they would be better in the hands of a more capable user

    I added some FG% and 3PT% information.

    And I was kind of hoping guys wouldn't just vote for their own pair.....{cough} Matrix Monkey {cough}....

    And Mike E as well....

    I voted for Nash & Granger. I've played the Clips and the Suns, and Paul/Blake can fall in love with the iso's and that leads to some bad shots. Nash & Granger were deadly when I played them and whether it was Nash driving and kicking or Granger coming off down screens for open mid range shots I just couldn't slow BDSDIGITAL down with them.

    i havent played everyone yet, when i do i can probably answer this alittle better, but of the group ( Clippers, Wizards, thunder) i would have to say... Paul and Griffin gave me the most fits.... Durant is a monster but Westbrook didnt impress me much.... and Wall killed us, but we limited Young.....

    sorry man.

    Take one away from KD and RW then and put it towards Amare and Melo. Blaza is unstoppable with Melo and once you figure out how to slow him down, you have a beast inside to deal with. Melo and Amare are an unstoppable force

    Sorry, you didn't mention that. It wasn't a homer pick anyway, stats!

    Also, CP3 is shooting 30+% from 3? Somehow I highly doubt that. I only take 3's when they're wide open and I almost always miss.

    That's what the 2k site says...fwiw you shot like 4-18 from 3 with him when we played and most of those were with a defender on him.

    Why would I lie about it?

    why?

    I voted Durant and Westbrook. Not only because of this season but last season we played. They can both finish and are incredibly fast...they were impossible to deal with when I had Boston due to their speed and they were just as good against my suns team...many props to Mike E

    Because Jameer is 2nd in the league in assists and Dwight is near the top in scoring, rebounds and blocks.

    When I looked at them combined they didn't seem to compare to the above list...don't worry I've got random questions that they will get some love in.;)

    I went with Cp3 and Blake, out of the pairs that I've played (which is only a few) They gave me the most problems.

    I voted Durant and Westbrook. They both absolutely killed me when we played, although that was last file, and may have had something to do with me being the Hornets... I'm not sure I'd fair any better with the Bulls though for what its worth, just a deadly duo.

    Wall and Young!

    But yeah, I voted for the NYK pair because they ALWAYS kill me whenever we play.

    Some games I commit like 2 turnovers but I've had games where I've committed 20+ some my fault some not. I personally committed about half of them in our game.
