Who's better: Clips' duo or Philly?
Why 'Lob City' has the edge over Bynum and Holiday
When you're pairing two All-Star starters against two up-and-comers who've never played together, you might just feel compelled to skip to the bottom of the story because you already know who won.
Well, hold on. All-Star votes don't count here. While Chris Paul and Blake Griffin have the advantage of having worked together for a year, Andrew Bynum is an All-Star force at his position and Jrue Holiday is one of the most promising young players in the game.
Forming a good duo is about more than just two players' combined production. It's about how well they work together and contribute to one another's games. Regardless of position, there are myriad ways two players can plug together to become greater than the sum of their parts.
