In terms of raw court dynamics, we haven't seen such a complementary rim-plus-arc pairing such as Dame and Giannis since the days of Shaq and Kobe, of T-Mac and Yao.
We've ranked every team's wing corps from 1 to 30 based on the top three wings' production, upside and versatility.
The primary knock against Ayton is that he wants more. For the Suns to beat the Nuggets, let alone reach The Finals, they need Ayton to narrow his role - then thrive in it.
