RANKED: The 25 Greatest Backcourts In NBA History

22. Sidney Moncrief and Paul Pressey — Milwaukee Bucks


We might be stretching it here considering that Moncrief could technically be labeled as a forward. However, the 6-foot-3 Moncrief has the correct height of a modern guard, and was one of the first players to ever operate as a point-forward in the NBA. Regardless of what position either player is listed at, Moncrief and Pressey were an electric duo that carried the Bucks franchise after the departure of Lew Alcindor. Arguably the best defensive backcourt of all-time (eight Defensive Team honors between the two), Moncrief and Pressey locked down opponents with gaudy length and freakish athleticism.
