    It’s pretty clear no one will beat out Illinois.. D-Rose and D-Wade? Pretty much untouchable..

      I dunno. Illinois vs. Ohio could go either way. But the winner of that matchup will have to win it all. The only team I could see standing a chance against them would be Georgia, which is inexplicably losing to Pennsylvania right now.

      I would for sure pick Steph and LeBron over everyone. LeBron’s the perfect two-on-two partner. Big enough to be your big man, but not a liability handling the ball or defending smaller, quick players. And with Steph shooting threes? I say they’d take out Wade/Rose.

    I think it would be a pretty square match up, but you’re probably right – Lebron could pretty much manhandle anyone in a game of 2-on-2.
    At the same time, it would still be a good matchup. With Rose presumably on Curry, i’d say it’s just as much of a mismatch as Lebron vs Wade one on one. Being we’re talking¬†hypothetically, with Wade practicing with Lebron – day in and day out, he’d put up a better fight defensively then Curry would against Rose.
     
    It’s still of course a mistmatch, but in the end I think it would be close as hell, and it could go either way.

      The reason I pick Lebron/Curry over Wade/Rose is because Curry is the best shooter of the four and in a format where threes are worth twice as much as twos, long range becomes more valuable.
