Proof that the LA Clippers are a two man team

An infographic currently doing the rounds on the world wide web has revealed some interesting things about the NBA's starting rosters.

Created by Andrew Bergmann, the graphic analyzes all thirty teams' most common starters, linking each player through a series of lines.

The thickness of said lines depicts how regularly the pair in question pass to each other on the court.

And the results are pretty interesting.

It seems that LeBron James and Dwyane Wade might not share such a common bond after all with Mario Chalmers shown to be the most common link to the reigning MVP on the court.

That may or may not have something to do with the fact that the Heat have at times wrapped Wade in cotton wool this season, resting the player when required.

Meanwhile at the LA Clippers the importance of the Paul-Griffin partnership is clear for all to see.

And the two-man syndrome is even more prominent at the Minnesota Timberwolves as Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio are shown to ignore their other teammates more often than not.

Shout out to the Brooklyn Nets, and Chicago Bulls however, who are the most diplomatic of rosters, sharing the ball more evenly than any of the other 28 NBA teams.

Fortunately for the Philadelphia 76ers there isn't a line for passes to opposition players.

Check out the graphic here for yourself.
