You know, I used to work for a swingers magazine that had me do a column about married couples with this exact title.
That…is not actually true.
But this is a fun column nevertheless.
What I was looking at for this entry was a pair of teammates’ actual ability to score, not necessarily averages. That means you need to be versatile, able to operate in different areas of the court and athletic enough to get your shot off—or in the case of Paul Pierce, have proof that you can do it anyway. Ideally, the duos complement each other, although I admit some who made the list are just guys who can score that happen to be on the same team.
In my opinion, the stat to look at here is FTA. It’s the No. 1 indicator of how much pressure you put on a defense, and as such, how well you’re able to score.
