All good things must come to an end, right?
Several young NBA pairings around the league are exciting to watch, but fans should savor every game they can. Most of these pairings won't last forever.
Young stars have been essential to the growth of the NBA ever since the league started, but young tandems have really become a mainstay in the league over the past decade or so.
Teams like the Oklahoma City Thunder (we'll get there in just a minute), have thrived with their young talent, making it so far as the NBA Finals.
When young superstars become free agents, however, it's difficult for teams to afford to keep both players. One of them must go, and the difficult decision is deciding which player should stay.
I won't get into the free-agency aspect of things, but I will be highlighting five young star pairings that won't be together within the next several seasons.
