2. Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray, Denver Nuggets

Quite possibly, the most notable duo in the NBA comes in at number three. Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray have played their entire careers in Denver. Most importantly, this duo won a championship together this past season.

Jamal Murray is the worst player on this list, but that's certainly not a knock on his ability, as the other players who appear are multi-year All-Stars, MVPs, and All-NBA talents.

Murray has yet to make an All-NBA team, better yet, he hasn't even made an All-Star team. But, Jokic and Murray have formed an elite partnership.

Watching Murray work alongside the two-time MVP Jokic is a beautiful sight. From Murray's cuts to his possessions as a pick-and-roll ball handler with Jokic as the roll man, this duo can make an offense look glorious.

Jokic is quite possibly the best passer in the NBA, and Murray is at the receiving end of plenty of Jokic's wonderful dimes.

During game three of the 2023 NBA Finals, Jokic and Murray set a record for most assists to each other in a finals game with eleven. The record they broke? Their own in game one, where they assisted each other nine times.

Jokic and Murray work together as the best duo in the NBA. The only thing holding this duo back is Murray's lack of accolades. This tandem might work the best together, but it's hard to rank as the best in the league when half of the duo hasn't made an All-Star appearance. Although, that should change in 2024.
