In NBA 2K21, current 2020-2021 Season cards have a special ability. This ability, entitled Dynamic Duos, allows two players to receive an in-game boost, provided that the two are real-life teammates in the NBA. Because of this feature, it’s a good bet you will want some teammates to pair alongside each other in MyTeam. But which combos do we think are the best? Let’s go over our best MyTeam Dynamic Duo combos for NBA 2K21.
Lakers – LeBron James/Anthony Davis
We’ll start with SF LeBron James and PF Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers. Both James and Davis’ base cards are 90 OVR in MyTeam, and each part of this dynamic duo is well-balanced. James is an all-around beast (83 PLY, 81 ATH, 80 DEF), while the 6’10” Davis should get plenty of rebounds and layups. With only seven base cards that are 90 OVR or better in MyTeam, it’s hard to do much better than James and Davis, if you can get them.
Clippers – Kawhi Leonard/Paul George
LeBron James and Anthony Davis aren’t the only dynamic duo in Los Angeles. SF Kawhi Leonard (90 OVR) and SG Paul George (88 OVR) have formed a powerful combination with the Clippers, putting the two of them on this list. Leonard has some of the best defensive attributes (84 DEF) you will find from a base player, while George can be a force both from beyond the arc and in the paint.
Rockets – James Harden/Russell Westbrook
SG James Harden (90 OVR) and Russell Westbrook (86 OVR) can both be frustrating players at times. Both are shoot-first guards who have great skills but can be incredibly frustrating to watch when they are off. Still, it’s hard to deny their talents, hence why they make this list. Harden has great shooting (82 INS, 82 OUT) attributes and a strong Athleticism (85) rating. And as for Westbrook, he can be both a threat when passing (85 PLY) or shooting (79 INS).
Warriors – Stephon Curry/Klay Thompson
PG Stephon Curry (90 OVR) and SG Klay Thompson have had a lot of success with the Warriors, winning three titles in the Golden State together. Considering all of the success the two of them have had with the Warriors, it’s not surprising that Curry and Thompson are on this list. Curry has some of the best outside shooting attributes (88 OUT) and amazing playmaking (88 PLY) ability. Thompson, meanwhile, is a strong defender (84 DEF) and can finish passes that he receives from his partner in crime.
Nets – Kevin Durant/Kyrie Irving
SF Kevin Durant (90 OVR) and PG Kyrie Irving (87 OVR) may not have played with each other yet, but the two make this list thanks to their track record. Two-time NBA champion Kevin Durant can do it all, as he’s a talented shooter (79 INS, 83 OUT) and a solid defender (74 DEF). Kyrie Irving should be able to set up Durant quite nicely, thanks to his great playmaking (86 PLY) ability).
