In an interview by ESPN, a five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant was asked who he thinks is the best duo in the NBA:

“It doesn’t matter. I think it matters what they put around those two guys, and then what is the offensive and defensive system they’re going to be executing. You could have marquee names and put those marquee names together, and guess if they could play together or not, but it ultimately comes down to what system do you have them in and how does that affect the rest of the guys,” Bryant said.
