    SI just ran an article on best NBA Jam duos in the league... which makes me wonder... who would be the best Rocket duos of all time?

    1970 - 1972 Elvin Hayes and Calvin Murphy
    1976 - 1982 Moses Malone and Calvin Murphy
    1984 - 1987 Hakeem Olajuwon and Ralph Sampson
    1995 - 1998 Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler
    1999 - 2004 Cuttino Mobley and Steve Francis
    2004 - 2010 (2008) Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady
    2013 - 2016 James Harden and Dwight Howard
    2017 - 2019 James Harden and Chris Paul​

    While it was a hopeful period, the Francis/Mobley teams had a losing season 2 of 5 years, and made the playoff only 1 year as a 7th seed (losing 1-4 in first round). They were an average pair of non-all-stars on average teams.

    Scratched them from the list because having Calvin 3 times would have been excessive.
