Which duo would you rather build a team around?

Durant/Jokic because young pre/prime Luka has clear flaws that I can see over peak Jokic/peak Durant
The 2010's will be known for NBA collusion just as the 2000's were known for MLB doping.
Glorifying either is glorifying anti-competition.

Luka/Dirk so Chuck doesn't have the option to.

In all seriousness, Luka is probably the weak(ish) link here, so I may take the other two by a bit, but I feel Dirk+guard is easier to build around.

I would prefer to build around Durant and Jokic. Jokic is by far my favorite player to watch here and you are going to be a dynasty of the greatest proportions with either duo.

Garnett and Jokic would be dominant. Greatest passing big man combo of all time.

Uhm no... you can replace KG with a bunch of other bigs and it would be a better big man passing combo. KG was great... but not tier 1 level.

Jokic on the other hand could be the best big passer ever and probably will go down as 1 when his career is over

Luka/Dirk. They'd average 50/15/15 between them on great effeceincy (except from the FT line :)), while the rest of the team having open looks all the way.

Jokic already is the best C passer of all time.
