The supremely talented 2014-15 NBA rookie class is exciting enough on its own. But the thought of top prospects joining forces with some of the league's top superstars and rising players evokes a whole new level of exhilaration.

Several rookie-player pairings are bursting with talent and will form dangerous inside-out combos or lethal backcourts. They range from playoff contenders to bottom-feeders, and in each case they're must-see attractions.

Barring a trade, this year's No. 1 pick will be battling alongside a certain No. 1 selection from 2003. You may have heard of them. Or you might know of a Los Angeles tandem looking to put the purple and gold back on the map.

That's just a small sample. The eight rookie-player duos featured here should already have NBA fans salivating.
