Dan is joined by Bleacher Report's Grant Hughes (@gt_hughes) to an exercise in imagineering. They each single out NBA sidekicks—No. 2 and No. 3 options OR non-scorers—who they would like to see in a first-option's role and then try to envision how they'd pan out. Think along the lines of Bradley Beal taking the reins in Washington and Pascal Siakam thriving without Kawhi Leonard. We're looking for our favorite similar cases. Let us know what you think, or if there's anyone you think we left off.
