The original and arguably the best duo in NBA history light it up in this countdown.
Before Chris Paul and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers, there was the Glove and the Reign Man.
For eight seasons Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp were the most dynamic point guard-power forward duo in the league and laid the platform for the catch-phrase for what is now known as ‘lob city’.
With Payton’s ability to steal and start fast breaks and Kemps’ ability to run the floor for a 6’10” big man, the pair brought crowds to their feet every night in not just Seattle but around the league.
While a top 10 was decided upon for this countdown it could have been a top 50 as the pair shared some of the most spectacular highlights in the 90s.
