    The 1996 NBA Draft was famously loaded with guards: Ray Allen, Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Allen Iverson, and Steve Nash.  If you could make up a backcourt with two players from that draft which two guards would you take?

    I would go with Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant.

    I would take Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash and not for their playing ability since they are both going to retire soon. I'm more interested in their abilities as colour analysts for future NBA games. Both seem to handle themselves during interviews in an interesting manner and that could be their future.

    They may not have had a great season together this year but I also have to go with Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash. Multiple MVP's and Kobe has quite a few rings as well. With apologies to Allen Iverson and a soft spot for Jesus Shuttlesworth this is an easy choice.

    It's Kobe and Ray Allen.  You would reach a 100 every night (if Kobe was willing to dish).  Iverson never distributed. Fisher was solid but not great. Nash was great but could not get you over the top in terms of winning a championship.

    Awesome question.

    Kobe and Iverson. Kobe doesn't need an explanation, but Allen's greatness is often overshadowed by his appearance as a thug and controversial statements. He could do everything Nash could do and was much tougher and  gave you some kind of defense.  Iverson willed his team to the finals. Something Nash could never do. The only issue would be who gets what shots. Even with that issue i still choose AI.

    Wow....nice question Tim, the 96 draft was loaded with talent......I would go with Kobe Bryant and Ray Allen........I know that neither are a PG....and Steve Nash would be available......but they are so talented....Id get a point guard in the next draft! lol. Stephon Marbury and Kerry Kittles also came out in 96, both were decent guards.
