Is it time to break up Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown?

Once, a young, promising duo of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant seemed like the pair to beat as they propelled the Oklahoma City Thunder to the NBA Finals. But the Thunder could not get over the hump to win it all until Westbrook and Durant were on the rosters of separate ball clubs.
