Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant are arguably one of the couples who have ever ended up on the same team. With both players possessing excellent scoring chances with elite skills, there are many who consider them the greatest duo of all time to feature in the league. However, Undisputed co-host Shannon Sharpe certainly doesn’t think so.
In the latest episode with his co-host Skip Bayless, Sharpe spoke about the greatest duos of all time in the NBA. And compared people like Kyrie Irving to Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal. After the Nets lost Game 1 to the Celtics, Sharpe had this to say about the Nets’ marquee stars.

Shannon Sharpe on Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant as the GOAT duo
NBA legend Tracy McGrady recently said Irving and Durant are a more experienced duo than former teammates LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. In the same note, sports media analyst Shannon Sharpe said that while the two could be more skilled, other duos are better overall.
“Being competent and being better are different things. Are They Better Than Pip Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan? No, are they better than Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant? No.”
After winning championships with different teams, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant set out to win one together. But with Covid rules and injuries hampering their progression and consistency throughout the regular season, the Brooklyn Nets have always faced major obstacles when it came to assembling a proper unit around their marquee duo. The result of this was evident in Game 1 against the Celtics, where the nets depended entirely on the scoring and leadership of Durant or Irving.
Game 2 against the Celtics could be the key game for the Kyrie Irving-Kevin Durant-led Nets. Given the scoring chances of these two players, NBA fans around the world would expect to be as vicious as ever in leveling the series before being pushed over the edge. Will Irving have the final say in his favorite spot? The coming hours will reveal all the answers.
