Tracy McGrady indicated that the duo of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving is more skilled than the former Miami Heat combination of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade as well as Jordan and Scottie.
When asked by Sharpe if KD and Kyrie is the “most skilled duo,” T-Mac replied, “Without a doubt. Without a shadow of a doubt.”
“I haven’t seen a pair, a duo that skilled… Mike and Pip… that’s the only thing I can go off of though,” T-Mac said. “There’s no other dynamic duo that compares to KD and Kyrie. Even if you look at what LeBron and D-Wade was, skill-wise, they still not touching them two boys.”
Neither LeBron or D-Wade seem to have a problem with the take.
“And that is not a dig,” Wade commented on Twitter. “Them two dudes are SKILLED af.” King James concurred, writing, ““I see no lie told! They are 2 of the most skilled players of ALL-TIME.”

Durant and Irving are in their second year of playing together with the Brooklyn Nets. They are currently down 2-0 to the Boston Celtics in the playoffs. Last year, Durant and Irving failed to help the Nets get past the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
James and Wade had success each year they were together in Miami.
During those glorious four seasons together, the Heat won the Eastern Conference championship every year and won consecutive NBA titles in 2012 and 2013.
Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, of course, won six league championships in an eight-year span.
