Ranking The NBA Backcourts – Update 1

The 2012/13 NBA season looked like it was going to be all about power packed backcourt duos.  The offseason saw numerous high profile guard combos hook up – the Lakers with Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant; Houston’s Jeremy Lin and James Harden; Brooklyn teamed up Joe Johnson with Deron Williams.  But which NBA backcourt starting pair have produced the most wins for their team thus far (based on Wins Produced via The NBA Geek)?  We’ve crunched the numbers and ranked the teams, from 1 to 30.  Here’s Update 1, after about a month of action on the courts.
