Interesting...my guess is that it will become more viable to build around 1-dimensional/defensively limited scorers as your secondary guy, in the way Dallas could/should have with Brunson (not that limited, but he's a small guard).Jokic and Doncic are it for me. Jokic has been covered. Doncic gives your offense a high floor in the playoffs, something I suspect will become increasingly important -- especially when you get it from a single max player -- moving forward.
My guess is the de facto hard cap is going to increase the viability of heliocentric offenses. Building around a single max player who can drive efficient offense will become a more effective roster construction strategy.
Eschewing a secondary creator entirely is just too tough when defenses can load to the primary guy.
