    On paper I think Harden and Ty can be the best all time back court duo in Rockets history!!

    How would you rank them to the others that played together?

    Smith and Cassell for the back to back World Champ
    Stevie Franchise and Cuttino Mobley
    Lowery and Martin

    A sober Lawson and Harden is the best backcourt we've ever had.

    Rafer Alston would have been right up there but unfortunately he was teamed up with 0-7 Tracy Mcgrady.

    I will wait for on-the-court results for the latest duo. Until then I will take Clyde Drexler + Sam Casell combo.

    If Lawson and Harden aren't the best backcourt in our history by the end of the season, something went terribly wrong.

    Well...they must bring home a championship to be consider the best....Harden is already the best Guard all-time for the team...now Ty and him needs to bring in one or two Championships for us

    Smith and Cassell - all due respect, tenacious players, but not a historic duo.
    Stevie Franchise and Cuttino Mobley - burned bright, burned out fast.
    Lowry and Martin - I have no memories of this duo doing anything.

    If we throw Clyde in with Smith/Cassell - THATs the duo to beat.

    Or the duo of Jeremy Lin / any SG.

    As long as Lawson isn't drunk then this has a chance to be an amazing duo

    Due to two back and back Championship they are the measuring stick for all others....its up to Harden and Ty to change that going forward now.

    If you put Prime Hakeem with Harden and Ty, championships would be there just the same.

    This is tied for the best with the Clyde/Sam/Smith combo. It may be better because Clyde was past his prime and Harden and Ty should just be entering theirs, but we still have to see.

    #Out of 10 for each player

    Harden , Ty/bev. Vs. Drexler , Smith/Cassel

    10. , 7/4.5. Vs. 8. ,6. / 6

    =22. Vs 20

    Which is pretty close

    A Francis/Harden backcourt would have been fun to watch

    You can't rate Drexler an 8 and Ty a 7. That's criminal.

    Bob Sura aka The Warrior could eat Beverley's lunch and chug Lawson's drink without a burb.
