Lebron, Curry, Durant, Harden, AD, maybe also Kawhi. Those players are all proven to be more reliable and dominating in the playoffs than Giannis, and have actually won a playoff series. Giannis couldnt even beat the injury ridden celtics last year. Hopefully he changes that narrative this year, but for now Im still taking those 5-6.
AD has sure dominated the playoffs. Hes got a whole series win to his name
More than giannis
Not for long
This is a silly take. Giannis has 0 playoff series wins. Both of Daviss series loses have come to the Warriors. Every team outside of the 2016 Cavs has lost the Warriors. Davis is a dominant playoff performer. His career averages are 30.5/12.7/2.5bl
But he has 0 series wins so he’s clearly not that good!!!
Its not a silly take. Davis is not "dominating" the playoffs as OP stated, regardless of what his stats are. And he lost 8-1 to the Warriors in those two series. LeBron and AD put up good stats this season, they were by no means dominant, that requires re
Technically 1 more than Giannis though...
And that win was a SWEEP, and he took a game off the warriors. Giannis competition in the playoffs dont even compare. He lost to the kyrie-less celtics.
LeBron almost lost to the Kyrie-less Celtics
That injury ridden Celtics beat the 76ers and then took Lebron to 7 games. They were a decent team.
still no excuse for Giannis losing to them, especially in game 7. I find it hard to believe any of the 6 I listed would have lost.
You have to factor in that was last year where Giannis was a worse player. If you put this years Giannis into that series the Bucks win that series in 6.
We literally had an interim coach vs. Reddit god Brad Stevens.
why is it hard for people to understand that we were flat out not good last year. theres a reason our win projection was only 48 going into this season. and this years giannis is much better than last years
How you gonna take AD over Giannis......? The others are arguable but at this point AD is not.
Agree, especially considering elite wings are more valuable than elite bigs, all else being equal.
If were just looking at playoff performance, Id omit Harden as well
They took the warriors to 7 games
Because AD has played better than Giannis in the playoffs, and against much better competition. ADs stats all around are better.
He has 13 total games in the playoffs...yes he has good volume numbers but who cares? So does Giannis, and Giannis has played in 20 games in the postseason.
You should take Kyrie too
Also where is dame? Im a thunder fan and that was sweet last night.
His track record really got hurt after last playoffs
Yeah but he is still good.
Did you watch his post game interview yesterday? Watch when he starts talking about Harkless.
Add Joe ingles on to that list too. Also, really talk, is Giannis even top 100 in the NBA? Dudes a bum
I would rather have Giannis over LBJ and AD since he is currently leading a team into and during a playoff series.
Maybe its because hes beaten our cheeks every year since 2011 but I think LeBron is still better than Giannis. LeBron is as unstoppable as you can get once he gets to the playoffs
This comment is wrong on so many levels
Its a joke on the other two not being there. AD has 1 win so I would take Giannis over him though.
Yeah you would definitely take Giannis over the man who had one of the single greatest playoff runs of all time last year /s
He got taken to 7 twice and got swept in the finals while playing weak East teams along the way. There are 4 teams in the East alone that would beat that Cavs team in the playoffs.
Its a joke like this retarded hot take post.
> Giannis couldnt even beat the injury ridden celtics last year. If you think last years Giannis is anywhere near this years Giannis, I think thats enough from you, nephew.
You might regret it
Thats like, your opinion man
Add CP3 and maybe Klay then definitely
The only problem Giannis has is that he cant shoot. But luckily they have other players who can.
I have an issue with the framing of this question. If you want to make an ordered list of how much you trust different players in a playoff series, sure. But youve narrowed this discussion to just "whos better than Giannis?" Which feels like a hot take, r
This Bucks team is clearly different from last years, I don’t think there’s a player I would take over him, Harden if anything
Good for you, now all you need to do is become a GM and see how that works out for you.
how mad are you
Not at all. I think OPs being a bit silly, but Im not going to get mad at someone for being silly.
Is rather have sunburn on my cock than read your opinion.
Imagine being this self absorbed
lol at AD proven in a playoff setting. when?
Since he averages 31/13/3 for his career
