Eleven months later, it's hardly a surprise to see Durant and Curry combine for 65 points, 23 rebounds, 17 assists and eight 3-pointers during Golden State's convincing Game 2 victory over the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017 NBA Finals.
But the Warriors' dynamic duo is just the most recent one in a long list of potent pairs to have displayed their talents on the hardwood over the years. Take a look back at these capable combos of the past and vote them up or down, based on which ones you think stand above the rest.
Although we still may need to see more from Durant and Curry as teammates beyond this year in order to call them one of the best duos in NBA history, they are certainly heading in that direction and have an opportunity to further their case in Wednesday's Game 3 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC/WatchESPN.
