    Not underrated duos in the NBA today, it can be from the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, or early '00s. Just not today. How about George Gervin and Artis Gilmore from the San Antonio Spurs teams in the early '80s? Another duo that should deserve some mention in this thread is Kiki Vandeweghe and Clyde Drexler from the Portland Trail Blazers teams in the mid-to-late '80s. Note: I didn't want to put this topic in old school, because I thought it'd get more attention here in General NBA (also considering the fact that all that all-era mock draft stuff is going on in that board).

    Alex English and Kiki Vandeweghe. In 82-83 season English averaged first in scoring with 28 ppg and Vandeweghe was second with 27 (pretty sure, might be 26). With Doug Moe and his fast break offense they both exploded.

    This could be a trio if you think about it,Steve Francis, Grant Hill, and Dwight Howard had a good year 2 years back. Grant played around 67 games that year and Dwight howard was 12/10...not to bad.Underrate DUOs, umm today could be Ford and Bosh, or even Calderon and Bosh.

    Today, I would say that it is Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer. Both are still young and the two worked great together this season taking the Jazz to the ECF. After the Golden State series, the media were calling these two the next Stockton and Malone. Assuming that Boozer stays healthy, these guys can continue to cause damage in the west next season.

    Grant Hill and Jerry Stackhouse both in their primes could have been a great Pistons duo for about 2 days.

Webber, Hardaway, Sprewell, etc.

    Starks/Ewing from the Knicks in the 90s. That was a pretty good duo IMO.And it's funny when people RF#1 come in and name their team's "duo"
