The NBA has a rich history of well-known duos in the sport.
Some remember the duo of Karl Malone and John Stockton from their days with the Utah Jazz.
Others remember Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant.
However, who can forget the duo of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen in Chicago?
While these duos are some of the best of their time, Stephen A. Smith has named his best duo for 2022.
So who is the best duo of 2022, according to Smith?
Smith Names Stephen Curry And Klay Thompson As Best Duo
While on ESPN, Smith revealed his best duo in the NBA.
With the talk being about Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, he went on a rant about his pick.
That pick was Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

He said Curry is the “best shooter that God ever created” during the ESPN segment.
While Tatum and Brown had a historic opening game as they both scored 35 points each, it wasn’t enough to convince Smith.
To him, it’s all about the Golden State Warriors duo, which is coming off an NBA championship.
He points to the numbers and greatness of Curry, which has led the Warriors to four NBA titles.
With Curry and Thompson being teammates since 2011, the Warriors have enjoyed many good seasons with them.
That bond has helped them lead the Warriors to NBA success, which first began in 2015.
Their success can’t be topped by any other NBA duo currently playing in the NBA.
With that, they get Smith’s blessing as the best duo in the NBA today.
