    A lot of people derisively call the duo of Kyle Lowry And DeMar DeRozan, the "Trash Brothers", a play on their description of themselves a year ago during their struggles.

    But in reality the "Trash Brothers" might be one of the very best backcourt duos in the entire NBA, despite their inconsistent play.

    So how high would you rank this backcourt duo compared to the rest of the NBA?

    1. Top 1-3 (Top 10%)
    2. Top 4-6 (Top 20%)
    3. Top 7-10 (To 33%)
    4. Top 11-15 (Top 50%)
    5. Bottom 15-30 (Below Average)

    I'd put Wade/Dragic over Wall/Beal.

    Right now, they are the best in the business, no questions asked.


    All time, I feel like I want to say that Isiah/Dumars were better, as well as Magic/Byron Scott and Goodrich/West. Because, those are the ones that produced championships and carried offensive loads for their respective teams.


    In other thread, there are alot of great guard duos, but most of them never "won" anything. And, wouldn't have won anything in any given NBA year.

    Klay/Steph have a certain synergy together, as they do with the Warriors, which makes them unbeatable. Other combos and teams just don't or didn't have that.

    Let me see what this Middleton/Giannis-at-the-1 backcourt is about next year.
