Top 5 NBA Duos Don Chach is Pumped For

The NBA is finally balanced for the first time in literally years and I don’t think I could be more excited about 2019-2020! Like seriously the last time it hasn’t been this even since Durant signed with Golden State. It’s a league of super duos and I’m so pumped I’m about to tell you about the top 5 NBA Duos I am most excited to see. This is not my duo ranking blog, that’ll be out next week you jackals.

Top 5 NBA Duos
Deandre Ayton and Devin Booker have Shaq and Kobe potential (Mark J. Rebilas/USA TODAY Sports)

#5 Devin Booker and DeAndre Ayton: Phoenix Suns

This may be one of the most slept on duos in the entire NBA because of the fact that the Phoenix Suns are complete dog crap. Ayton, I feel has the potential to be a dominant big in this league after having a great rookie year where he averaged 16 PPG and 10 RPG. Not the year that many of us were expecting from the number one pick out of Arizona, but he still has so much room to grow. At 7’1” DeAndre has phenomenal size and he’s paired with one of the best shooters and scorers in the league with Devin Booker. The reason I’m so excited for this duo is because with all the potential that it has to be Shaq and Kobe 2.0 but with all the pressure that losing brings with it. Booker can’t do it all by himself and he must start being a leader on this young Suns team. My expectation for this team is that they are better than people expect but fall just short of the playoffs.

#4 Kawhi Leonard and Paul George: Los Angeles Clippers

Obviously, the Clippers have the best team not only in LA, but in the Western Conference. If you disagree with that then we can talk at the end of the year. This duo is going to be insane to watch next year. Defensively there’s no duo better and offensively their going to be so much fun to watch. It’ll be Lob City 2.0 in 2019-2020. The reason that their lower on the list is only because everyone knows how good these guys are and how good they’re going to be. You have the best overall player in the game with Kawhi, and Paul George who just keeps getting better every year. Don’t be surprised next year when this duo takes the Clippers on a deep playoff push.

#3 Zion and Zo: New Orleans Pelicans

Now, this is going to be fun, man. I’m already visioning Lonzo to Zion oops off the glass and it’s giving me literal goosebumps man. Lonzo is going to have a hell of a season next year. The oldest Ball brother has been slept on since his disappointing rookie year where he only averaged 10 PPG. Last year he suffered through not only injuries but playing with Lebron who forced him to try and play out of his comfort zone. Lonzo is going to have a year next year man, he’s my early pick for Most Improved. I’m not 100% sold on Zion yet and its nothing against him. The kid is humble, poised, and seems like an all-around down to earth 19-year-old. The main questions I have is his weight and how will he be able to deal with the pressures that have been put on him since he was in high school. I think that this duo is going to be a lot of fun to watch and I think it has the potential to take the Pelicans to the Playoffs.

#2 James Harden and Russel Westbrook: Huston Rockets

WE GOT A REUNION IN H-TOWN!! But who cares man…? I’m not a huge Russell Westbrook fan in all honesty and playing with James Harden may not be the best situation. Both players need to have the ball in their hands to be dominate and neither are defensive forces. I think that this is going to be such a disappointing duo and, in all honesty, it hurts the Rockets as a team. The reason they’re even on the list is because of all the hype around them. I think this is going to be such a disaster and that’s why I am pumped to watch them crash and burn.

#1 Ben “Money Bags” Simmons and Joel “The Process” Embiid: Philadelphia Sixers

HERE THEY COME EVERYBODY! Are you even surprised with this choice? OF COURSE NOT! The Philly kid has to pick the hometown team. I am so excited to watch these two continue to grow, and with the core that they were able to go out and assemble it’s just going to be fun. South Philly is going to be bumping next season and I cannot wait. The only thing we need is Ben to develop a damn jumper and he’s Magic Johnson 2.0. Let’s get it boys the East is WIDE open this year since KD will be out all season. This is going to be the Sixers best chance to make it to the finals and they need to capitalize on it. As long as Ben and Joel continue to grow the way they are and they stay healthy this is my favorite duo in the entire league. TRUST THE PROCESS!
