Deebo or That Boy Jrue? ðŸ¤”

The question was posed on r/nba today (presumably because Sports Illustrated ranked DeMar DeRozan and Jrue Holiday the 30th and 29th-best players, respectively, in the League), and I thought it was an interesting comparison.

DeMar has three more All-Star appearances and two more All-NBA selections. He was just traded for a top-five player in the League (when healthy) Kawhi Leonard.

And yet… I think most people would rather have Holiday as their 2-guard (myself included). Holiday is a better defender (by a mile), better shooter, and gets his offense without nearly as many plays or touches.

Should be interesting to note how these players compare as other outlets (*cough cough*) release their rankings over the next month.
