Are Boston Celtics star wings Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown the best duo in the NBA right now? It is hard to find a more dangerous offensive pairing, or a more stymying defensive duo in the league this season, and the two Boston forwards are doing it at a high level on both ends of the court with consistency, too.
The end result for the Celtics has been a historic offense, a solid defense, and the best record in the league so far this season. Is that enough to declare them the best duo in the NBA when they have fallen against the likes of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson or Paul George and Kawhi Leonard in recent weeks?
The hosts of the Showtime Basketball “What’s Burnin’” podcast recently debated this question at length.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what Matt Barnes and Jelani McCoy have to say.
