best young backcourt poll

got some quality young back court pairings in the association atm. i had a cut off of age 26.

poll: which do you think will be the best when all is said and done?

discuss: strengths/weakness? which have the best chance of wining chips together? which will fizzle out? which will crash and burn?

some of these are closer to their prime than others but hey, let us project and predict the future based on the now and based on gut instincts

grizz > cavs > pacers right now but pacers guys are so young and already putting up efficient numbers theres big upside there

not sold on the rest of these as pairings though SGA is obviously the real deal

i dont see the rockets pair sticking together. maybe they'll get scoot and then youve got something. kpj is fine but not a foundational piece imo.

what the hawks pairing are doing so far is pretty impressive

grizz > cavs > pacers

think agree with this, pitons are the long term dark horse tho, shai prob the 2nd best player over all but im not sold on giddey

hawks guys both really good but not a ton of upside left there also not the best fit

putting the rockets duo on here and not the grizzlies is a crime against humanity

hauge for spottie

bane is a nice player but he’s also a clear fourth among ja, garland and mitchell. if you think ja is just heads and shoulders better than both the cavs guys then you prob pick the grizz but if not the cavs duo is prob overall better

i haven’t seen much of ivey this year but i’ve heard that he’s looked pretty good. i think i like the pacers duo better than detroit’s bcuz mathurin looks like a really serious player & will prob be the best defender of those 4 guys. it feels like he has the size to be a two way beast in a way cade & ivey don’t, as dynamic as they both are offensively

J0rdan S., Friday, 18 November 2022 23:58 (two weeks ago) link

bane shooting 45% on 9 threes a game is pretty interesting, to me

lag∞n, Friday, 18 November 2022 23:59 (two weeks ago) link

ivey does indeed look very good just one of those guys who immediately passes the eye test

bane is a great role player, he feels more like a peak 3 and D player. which is a great player to have and you def need those kinda guys to win titles. but garland and mitchell are true offensive superstars with the ball in their hands, it doesn’t seem like bane has that skill set

J0rdan S., Saturday, 19 November 2022 00:10 (two weeks ago) link

if you take 3 and d to its peak what you get is, klay thompson

lag∞n, Saturday, 19 November 2022 00:12 (two weeks ago) link

well, i don’t think bane is one of the 5-10 greatest shooters ever

J0rdan S., Saturday, 19 November 2022 00:34 (two weeks ago) link

its on the table

lag∞n, Saturday, 19 November 2022 00:45 (two weeks ago) link

I feel sick about it lol. I thought I typed them up first and musta deleted on accident when I was cutting and pasting around to change the order.

this is kinda the point though if we're judging pairings and not players he's the perfect second guy
