There's a strong case Jokic > Lillard and Murray > McCollum so I think I'll go with Denver's duo.

I think itís even. Murray is inconsistent besides his bad defense. Jokic on most nights is the best offensive player on the court. About the only player that can score under 10 points and still be the best offensive player on the court.

Portland though has the 3rd best backcourt in the NBA.

right now tiny edge to portland. both dudes are in their primes. upside and future clearly nuggets guys. jokic is strong enough on his own to sway it to denver and I can see an argument there.

Dame needs a legit 2nd tier star

No, but that's because I don't think CJ's advanced stats do him justice. He has been really clutch all postseason and he is one of the better players at creating his own shot off the dribble. But Murray has impressed me thus far this series.

There's no way to get one. We are over the cap and even if we get under the cap, no realistic FA is coming to Portland. Outside of CJ we don't have the assets to trade for another legit star either, at least a half dozen teams can come up with a better offer for AD without even trying.

I think given the limitations Olshey has done a pretty good job of surrounding Dame, from trading for Nurkic, trading for Hood, signing Kanter. Our team lacks a second star but we are deep and everyone knows their role.
