This list should come with minimum time played together.

Laker duos should take up about 20 spots

Pau and Kobe (who aren’t on the list) should definitely rank higher than James and Davis. You can’t tell me that James/Davis half a season is better than back-to-back titles and three consecutive final appearances.

I fully agree.

Some of the Duo's had a third or even fourth teammate who are also stars. But in virtually all these pairings I think we can agree who the top two players on the team were.

So I find this an unobjectionable space filler, although it would have been more interesting if it had to find the criteria of how it rank the Duo's

Agree, true duos to me are the ones where you have a 1A and 1B, or atleast a real 1 and 2, but not a 'great' 3, so like these:
Kobe-Pau
Wade-Shaq
Kobe-Shaq
Jordan-Pippen
Stockton-Malone
Johnson-Barkley
etc.

Id just exclude Green from your list, hes a role player to me

Kobe and Shaq are the true duo and best duo ever. They won 3 consecutive titles together. Michael and Pippen have other stars around.

They really dont.

And i do think Shaq-Kobe are the better duo, because Pippen is the by far 'worst' player here
