We all have that special someone who we like to call our BFF, aka Best Friend Forever. June 8th, 2020 is National Best Friends Day where we honor the ones closest to each other on the court. With that, here are some of our favorite BFF duos!
Boban Marjanovic and Tobias Harris
Boban Marjanovic (Dallas Mavericks) and Tobias Harris (Philadelphia 76ers) are a duo that we love. Over a span of three years, two trades, and 765 minutes, they have developed one of the best friendships in the NBA league. They even garnered their own nickname of Bobi and Tobi! They had become close when they both played for the Clippers, but even though they currently play for different teams, their friendship remains intact!
Kevin Durant and Michael Beasley
Kevin Durant (Brooklyn Nets) and Michael Beasley (Free Agent) both grew up in Maryland and played AAU and high school ball together. Small world right? Later on in their basketball careers, they gained many similar accomplishments such as being named conference players of the year as freshmen and were both number two picks in back-to-back NBA drafts! Eventually their careers went in two different paths, but they remain good friends! We love a great power friendship.
Kyrie Irving and Harrison Barnes
Back in 2010, Kyrie Irving (Brooklyn Nets) and Harrison Barnes (Sacramento Kings) were both named Co-MVPs of the Jordan Brand Classic! How can you top their BFF goals especially when Irving was a groomsman in Barnes’ wedding?! The duo has been going strong since 2010 and we’re here for it.
Donovan Mitchell and Royce O’Neale
Donovan Mitchell and Royce O’Neale both play for Utah Jazz and are among our favorite BFFs on the court. Both entered the league in 2017 and built a bond during their rookie season. In fact, they even lived in the same apartment complex on the same floor, and the rest was history!
Steven Adams and Enes Kanter
Steven Adams (Oklahoma City Thunder) and Enes Kanter (Boston Celtics) are BFFs that have natural chemistry. Their bromance is like no other even when they were bonding over their mustaches. They have quite a bit in common as well like being international players and have a similar sense of humor, which if you ask us, makes for a very entertaining friendship that we admire.
Share this with your BFF on June 8th and let them know just how much you appreciate them!
