Jerome an Guy put all the pieces together and brought home a national title. Although I’d argue they were in a 3 man backcourt since Kihei ran point most of the season

Would concur with Jerome/Guy and put Jones/Lamp second. Singletary/Reynolds round out my top 3.

The argument against jerome/guy would be their defense… which is why kihei played as much as he did. no questioning the natty tho.

JR and Sean were tough on both sides of the ball…

London and malc people complained about speed…

This is a tough one. I think I gotta go Ty and Guy, but SS and JR were damn good too. People are sleeping on Cory n Curtis tho.

Thank you and you know mine. If we are able to go 3 on the rotation I put Deane in there with these two. Ty and Kyle close… Ty did a lot for Kyles game

You’re right the Cory Curtis combo is slept on. That team has a special place in my heart. Hell it was the Cory podcast that got me to LRA in the first place.

Alexander/Staples only played together a handful of games… But, Deane/Curtis was a great combo… good enough for an Elite 8 appearance.

Great point. Deane Curtis was a killer combo. I remember when Deane got reprimanded by his dad after celebrating with Curtis after hitting a 3 by blowing on his hands to cool them off.

Cory and Curtis only played together like 20 games. Deane and Courtney only 2 seasons. Deane and Curtis played together 3 seasons and they aren’t even an option? No 4 year starter Joe Harris??

This is a tough one. Ty/Guy had Kihei so are they really a 1&2? What about Brogdon/Harris if we’re allowed to ignore a freshman PG?

  1. Ty & Guy (Natty over all)
  2. Brogdon / London (3 of our 6 best seasons ever)
  3. (tie) Singletary / Reynolds
  4. (tie) Jones / Lamp

HM: Stokes / Wilson, Deane / Staples

If I could pair Brogdon and Harris for 2014, I’d put them at #2.

Best 3 man backcourt has to be the 93 guys, right?

only it was a semi perfect 4 man rotation. I never started one game. but I could sub 3 spots. Corey, Cornell, and or Jay Willy. And we filled it all in there. I refused to even start my senior day game cause we wanted to win.
