Giannis leads the Bucks to the Finals LeBron-esque in 2012. Will you consider him the #1 player in the league entering next season?
depends on how he performs in the finals
Bucks in 6
What if he sweeps
yes, but only if hes really spectacular
I think some may say he already is, but sure I would as well
Whoever wins the chip this year is the best player imo. Harden/Giannis/Kawhii/KD/Steph.. Its pretty open.
MIL Looks invincible right now and that’s all because of him.
LeBron is still the best player in the league until he isnt averaging 27-8-8 in his sleep. We need to see a drop off in LeBron before claiming someone else is the best. Did you forget the historic playoffs he just had last year? Best player in the world i
Giannis, because he actually made the playoffs. I’d rather not rely on some guy sitting at home drinking wine to win me playoff games. We did see a drop off in LeBron. Maybe he can come back next year fully healed up and show it again but if your reput
> I’d rather not rely on some guy sitting at home drinking wine to win me playoff games. lmao what a fucking joke of a homer take
No. KD is better
Do you think KD could do anything this year that would make him #1 that he doesnt done the last two seasons though?
KDs been playing at this same elite level for over 10 years now. Along with two FMVPs averaging 30+ in the finals on historic efficiency. Giannis is not better after having one MVP season
Giannis is a much better defender, a much better rebounder, a better playmaker, and scored more on better efficiency and less minutes this season. If he carries his play into the playoffs, idk what more people need to see.
Much better defender? LOL. So why does Giannis always start on the worse shooter on the team? Why is he never assigned to guard elite wings? Because his lateral quickness is lacking. Better rebounder? LOL. Dude grabs 8.5 unassisted rebounds a game. And I
It all depends on the criteria used to define best player: Will he be the player that currently elevates his team the most and dominates the game? Yes. Will he be better in terms of overall career? Absolutely not.
I mean, if hes significantly outplayed by KD in the finals I cant see how
Giannis leading Bucks to chip is more Steph 2015 than LeBron 2012
No. The east is a joke this year.
Why do you say that? Theres the Raptors and Celtics that the Bucks will likely have to go through. Both of those teams are very arguable as top 5/6 teams in terms of talent.
Not at all
Flair checks out
The rockets arent getting past golden state, but the Bucks and Raptors have a great chance :)
Ive noticed that its almost exclusively Rockets fans that dwell on this. Everyone acknowledges that West > East, but the whole concept that nothing you do in the matters if youre an Eastern player is something Rockets fans have really taken and run wit
4 of the best 5 teams in the league are in the east
I will definitely concede Milwaukee and Toronto but Philly and Boston should not count tbh.
