Jordan and Scottie, Kobe and Shaq, Steph and Klay.  Nearly all of the most memorable dynasties in basketball history feature a 1-2 punch that, surrounded by a strong supporting class, can take over games and lead their team to victory.  Here, we highlight several of these dynamic duos that helped carry their teams to a successful weekend at the Summer Challenge in Chicago last weekend:


James Dent James Dent 6'3" | SG Springfield Southeast | 2021 State IL & Amar Augillard Amar Augillard 6'5" | SF Zion Benton | 2021 State IL - All In Athletics

This tandem stood a notch above the rest for most of the weekend.  Dent, a prolific perimeter shooter, and Augillard, a do-it-all combo forward, complement each other quite well and led A.I.A all the way to the semifinals before falling in a tight game to a deep and talented Wisconsin Playground Club.  Dent is a threat to pull-up and knock down a jumper from just about anywhere inside half-court.  Opposing defenses could ill-afford to spread out and give him too much attention, because Augillard would slash his way to a finish at the rim.  They are both must-finds in transition and when they are both locked in good luck slowing them down.
