    Who else thinks that J.R. and Melo' are the most fun duo to watch? There are some better duos out there, but these 2 guys fill up the highlight reels in seconds.:hoops:

    Personally, I don't like Carmelo. I'd rather watch Smush Parker and Mo Evans.

    You don`t? Why not?

    I admit the dude accumulated some baggage in the couple of years he has been in the league, however, his play lately has been very, very good. His defense is not there yet, but his work ethic and leadership skills are coming around.

    He will certainly be an all star this year, may lead the league in scoring, and if the Nuggets stay healthy, they could make some noise in the Western Conference.

    I wasn`t too crazy about Melo as a rookie, but you have to admit, wouldn`t you like to see him in a Piston uni about now?

    Rip and Tay because they both play about 3 feet off the floor. On fast breaks, nothing is better.

    No doubt Carmello is a great player. I just don't like his attitude. Perhaps he would have worked out nicely as a Piston. On the other hand, maybe there would have been a logjam at the SF spot and it just wouldn't have worked. Anyway, as "the most fun duo to watch", I'll have to pass.

    I don`t know about the "most fun duo" either, however, Carmello is turning out to be one of the league`s best.

    If his current level of play continues it will make his attitude issues nonexistent...........

    Since Billups passing to Hamilton led the league in most assisted field goals last year (over Nash to Marion), I'll have to stick with them.

    i would have to go with darko and dwight. i don't think too many duos in the league do as many exciting things offensively and defensively. the twin towers are together the whole package.

    My favorite assist duo is Dwayne Wade and Dick Brevetta.

    I would have to say the most sensational duo, totally under the radar is Steve Nash and Shawn Marion.

    You will never think of them as "sensational" or "flashy", but Rip and Chauncey sure seem to get the job done more often than not. I think Piston fans often take it for granted what a great backcourt duo we have.
