Personally, I’m at about a 6. Always knew the Bucks had the talent but I never really expected them to put it together. I had them losing to the Nets, figured they’d beat the Hawks after that, but was pretty confident in Suns in 6. Moderately surprising run altogether, but not shocking.
After being down 2-0, Iâ€™ll say Iâ€™m fairly surprised like a 7
Yeah, them going down early seemed like the nail in the coffin to me, but they came back with a vengeance.
Most wins in the NBA since 2018
True, but wins â‰ championships as I am unfortunately aware
which is why we lose
Bobby Portis Eyes/10
I canâ€™t unsee that squidward meme now
imagine someone telling you giannis game 6 statline to win the title after his hawks injury
once they beat the nets no one could stop them
Seems like it.
Probably a 7. I bet on them in round 2 to win it all but thought it was fucked for a long time
The Giannis injury seemed like an inflection point to me, but in the opposite direction of what I expected
Like 7 but solely because I cant Nostradamus the Nets injuries
Who could? Injuries are just like that. Voodoo type beat
Same. 6 is fair. Of course they were contenders but I thought they were dead after that game 2 blowout vs Nets. Things broke out for them but every team needs luck to win the title. They deserve it for sure
Hmmâ€¦why that number? I can only guess
3 I wasnt rooting for it, but Im a believer in a slow build team. 3 meaning not real surprised. How does this scale work?
Prob should have clarified that 10 is the most extreme lol I figured it was just implied
Before giannis injury I would say 2/10 but immediatly after 10/10
Yeah it looked bad, and yet I honestly had forgotten about it till getting on Reddit today
not surprised considering how the suns had a major disadvantage this series, their opponent were healthy
Sheeeesh you ainâ€™t wrong though
One Two Three Four Five Six Seven Eight Nine Ten Eleven Twelve Thirteen Fourteen Fifteen Sixteen Seventeen
Not that surprised because of Giannis.
thought it was doomed brother
Donâ€™t blame ya. Had it been my team I would have been pessimistic af
Im at around a 2. They have been in the mix for 3 years now and it was only a matter of time before they put it all together.
like a 4, i was iffy on them vs the nets and clippers/lakers. but since they avoided 2 of those and nets stars got injured, not really surprised
Like a 5. I thought the suns were the better team if Giannis wasnâ€™t gonna be totally healthy (which I highly doubted at the time) but apparently this man is Greek wolverine
I thought it was basically certain once Kawhi was injured and didnt play. I was praying the suns could find something.
solid 4, went up to 8 after game 2.
9. Only because I felt the Nets were a lock if 2 of their 3 stars were healthy...but only 1 was at crunch time.
From the start of the playoffs? like a 7-8
when they were down 0-2 i thought the suns had them but Giannis is a glitch
I would say a solid 8. Didnâ€™t think Giannis could do it without another star simply because of his inability to shoot. He proved me wrong and I couldnâ€™t be happier. What a refreshing breath of air this guy is. To come from nothing and climb the highes
Not surprised other than b/c the Nets were hurt
If we are talking about like 1 day before the season began I would put it at an 8/10. I absolutely did not see them winning a title. ECF loss at best.
10, this proves the NBA is not rigged. Milwaukee would not be given a chance if it was.
complete 10 but im a dumbfuck. Shouldve know superteam would Choke. Hardens a bum and kd will never win unless he has steph to bail him out (btw steph is the better player so kill this argument you nephews) Giannis exceeded all expectations and took down
4. I was fairly confident Bucks would win against the Suns. Suns had the easiest path to the Finals in recent memory. Not to take anything away from them, you play who you play but the Bucks team was like the first full strength team they had to play.
Like a 2, after Kyrie and Harden went down, I thought any other result from them would be a choke
Solid 7. I was rooting for them when it was obvious the TWolves werent going anywhere, but their regular season play and then the Giannis injury had me writing them off
Hard to put a number to it but the Bucks were definitely underdogs and even more when they were down 0-2. So Id say around a 7.
Honestly 2 maybe 3. Iâ€™ve been high on the Bucks all year. Only time I really questioned their chances were the first couple games vs the Nets. I tend not to be so confident in a teams chances so this was weird for me but at no other point in the postsea
