Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are one of the biggest duos in the NBA.
Irving really solidified his place as a superstar during the 2016 finals and James' stature in the game goes without saying.
There have been a number of success stories with big-name stars on the same roster, but they don't get any better than Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant with the L.A. Lakers.
They won three titles together and were often considered the best duo to ever team up. Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue saw them up close and personal; winning two titles as a Laker, and he sees a number of similarities between his current duo and the Purple and Gold's famous pair.
"It really is a lot of the same, because LeBron's been to six straight Finals; his body's been beat up," Lue said. "Shaq was the same way, being beat up through his career, and taking summers to relax and get his body right. LeBron never takes time off, but Shaq was really beat up over those years.
"The Lakers coming back, bringing Shaq back slow, letting him get in shape in camp, it's kind of the same way with LeBron. Kyrie's already in shape because he played in the summer, and he's ready to go."
