This playoffs has solidified Dame as the unequivocal #2 PG in the current era. Bill Simmons of late, has repeatedly called him the 4th best guard of the last decade behind Steph/Harden/CP. He has surpassed Westbrook and Kyrie. He is now almost a lock for HOF given his longevity of success and his stats. But the other narrative that is building of late among basketball media is that Dame's always going to be overshadowed by Steph similar to Clyde being clouded by MJ's greatness. There's only one way to change that narrative. Dame needs to have a historical series to inch closer to Steph's level. Steph is 6-0 against Dame in their careers in the playoffs. With KD being iffy, this is Dame's chance to go at that throne.
