    MJ and any of Kerr/Paxson/Armstrong/Harper.

    Kobe & Derek Fischer did win 5 titles together.
    Parker & Ginobli won 4.

    To suggest these two are the best ever is ridiculous.

    Harper and Scott weren't really great players. The only reason those back courts were in the conversation was solely due to the greatness of Magic and MJ.

    I like Thomas and Duamrs, Drexler and Porter as two of the top back court tandems NBA history.

    Because of 1 word. . . . . California.

    That's it, and that's all.

    Good call

    Another GS combo I was thinking is Hardaway-Sprewell.

    That's a bit of a stretch. Bay Area gets a good amount of attention but common, they get 1% the attention of LA, New York, Chicago, Boston, etc.

    Curry is special. Klay is not but he is very good though. Thompson's game seems under developed still aside from his shot.
    The splash brothers put up great stats but in my opinion, the best backcourt in nba history is... Clyde Frazier and Earl the Pearl Monroe. They were versatile and they played smart and they helped the Knicks win a championship together. Frazier was the guy who personified be quick but don't hurry.

    Kenny Smith in the same sentence as best backcourt ever??? Not once, but twice?? :confused:

    Did you even watch the 94 NBA Finals?

    My picks (no order):

    Parker + Manu
    Drexler + Porter
    Isiah + Dumars.

    The Curry + Thompson reminds me of Bibby + Bobby Jackson during King's prime runs under Adelman. Same kind of unconscious shooting by both players under a high octane offense system.
