Next great PF/C Combo?

This combo is crucial for winning big in the L.

Dirk/Tyson

Gasol/Bynum

Gasol/Odom

KG/Perk

TD/NMohamed & RHorry

Sheed/BBen

Shaq/RHorry

So which PF/C combo are looking forward to watching over the next few years develop.

DJordan/BGriffin come to mind as two athletic bigs that can help out on the pick & roll and also protect the rim.

Well if Oden ever gets

Well if Oden ever gets healthy then him and Aldridge would be right there at the top.

From a defensive standpoint

From a defensive standpoint Perkins/Ibaka

a full season playing together and another year of development for Ibaka and they could make the most impact as any combo in the league.

I think years into the future

I think years into the future it could be Favors/Kanter but thats just speculation at this point.

hickson/cousins? defensively

hickson/cousins? defensively we all know it's not going to be amazing, but on offense? i could see this pair doing some things, and at very least they should be fun to watch

McGee and Vesely should be

McGee and Vesely should be fun to watch or the Wizards continue with the Blatche and McGee PF/C combo-- two big time talents but it hasn't really clicked yet. Any combination of those two (or with Vesely at the 3) should be fun to watch grow and develop with John Wall running the show.

You forgot

You forgot Duncan/Robinson.

But Drummond Griffin would be cool. Also, maybe IF you call Derrick Williams a 4 and Love a 5, than that duo might be decent. Other than that Howard/Bass and Anderson was not bad, but not really.

Think of the teams Drummond could go to Cleveland, they have Thompon and Drummond possible, Charolate could have Biyombo and Drummond. But yes, having two quality bigs is key to winning a championship.

2009-2010 Chris Kaman and

2009-2010 Chris Kaman and Blake Griffin would be pretty unstoppable.

Some other young duo's to keep your eye on...they could boom or fizzle

Andrew Bogut / Larry Sanders

Marcin Gorat / Markeiff Morris

Bargs / Ed Davis - offense/defense

Hibbert / Hansbrough

Just because he played so

Just because he played so well in the playoffs I'll say Taj Gibson/Noah if and when Boozer goes down.

Lopez and Humphries

I think Brook and Kris Humphries can be a very good Forward/Center Combo. Lopez is one of the top young centers in the game. If he ever improves his rebounding he will be a top three center without question. Humpries is a poor-man's Blake Griffin. He is athletic and he hustles and a good rebounder.

But this all depends if Kris signs back with nets

Uncle Earl next 2 Duncan

would be considered a great combo. the best PF ever. And decent role players. Actually Horry played more in the Playoffs than Nazr. And him paired with Duncan was an awesome 4/5 combo.

Lot of Haters, why don't you respond to this.

It seems like no one liked my list of young PF/C combinations that show some potential for the future. As I said in my original post that they could pan like their respective GM's had in mind out or they could very well fizzle. With the lack of true centers in the league I targeted young C's that have some legit upside who have younger or unproven power forwards next to them.

Andrew Bogut - 12.8 ppg 11.1 rpg 2.6 bpg (league leader) age 26

Larry Sanders - 4.3 ppg 3.0 rpg 1.2 bpg ( in only 14 mpg) age 22

Despite a low key rookie year Larry Sanders is a guy with major potential, especially on the defensive end. Bogut and Sanders combined for 3.8 blocks per game and Sanders was playing less than 15 minutes per game. Sanders has some work to do on his game but is 6'11'' and paired with Bogut's 7' they make up one of the tallest and longest duo's in the league with a 7'3'' wingspan for Bogut and 7'6'' for Sanders. Only time will tell whether this duo reaches their potential, but the potential is certainly there.

Marcin Gortat - (with Pheonix) 13.0 ppg 9.3 rpg 1.2 bpg age 26

Markeiff Morris - (college) 13.6 ppg 8.3 rpg 1.1 bpg age 21

I know this combo will raise some eyebrows, but Gortat really came into his own when he was traded to Pheonix and allowed to step out from behind Dwight Howard's shadow. Gortat is still only 26 years old and will continue to improve next season and Pheonix, who was desperate to add toughness at the PF spot, did exactly that adding Markeiff Morris. He is a player who isn't afraid to mix it up and has a very good outside shot and pick and pop potential to come in and make an immediate impact. This duo may take a few years to work things out, but it's not as crazy as it seems when you first look at the names.

Roy Hibbert - 12.7 ppg 7.5 rpg 1.8 bpg age 24

Tyler Hansbrough - 11. ppg 5.2 rpg .5 spg age 25

Roy Hibbert is another one of those guys who is going to get over that hump of being an average starting center or stay at that level. I really like the team Indiana is building and Hibbert could really take the next step in 2011-12 and become that 15+ ppg 9 rpg 2 bpg center he has the potential to be and Hansbrough, is a hard working player with a good jumpshot and 100% hustle. He answered a lot of questions and improved his FG% immensely as a sophomore and I think he and Hibbert both have the potential to be at that 15 ppg 9 rpg range and when you're getting 30+ ppg and 18+ rpg from your PF and C on a well balanced team that's pretty good in my book, but this duo could just as easily fade into mediocrity.

Hibbert & Ashtma

I think he has asthma & does it affect how much effort he can put out in a given season. He started the year out then he fell off a bit. & the Pacers have $$$ to throw @ a decent PF FA (DWest, KLandry, KHumpries" Although Kim would not live in NapTown so thats out of the ?.")

Without a doubt...

I like Jordan and Griffin.... If Jordan can pick up some offensive moves and become a consistent scorer(doesn't have to be big time, just adequate), he and Griff could be awesome.

But the next big thing in the NBA is Kanter and Favors. They ham and egg it perfectly with their strengths and weaknesses. In two years the Jazz will be where the Thunder are now, only without any major flaws. Perkins does nothing for me, I think it was a wasted trade for the Thunder. Ibaka is another story, he's a monster in the making at PF.

In two years.....

C-Kanter

PF-Favors

SF-Hayward

SG-Burks

PG- Hopefully one of the studs in this next year's draft, Austin Rivers would be ok. Just kinda. Teague or Kabonga would be all right too.

That's a serious lineup, folks.
