Last night the GSW DEN FT disparity was 21 The Warriors still won by 14 10:15 am Wed Apr 3 EDTRemoved

Refs really tried to make Denver win. too bad. 0

Giannis on Embiid calling himself the most unstoppable player in the NBA If he believes hes the most unstoppable player in the NBA thats good for him I think like other people should say that about you you dont say that about yourself 1:51 pm Wed Apr 3 EDTRemoved

Giannis is the most unstoppable player on the Bucks. No doubt. -1

Serious I can t understand how Giannis can be the MVP this year4:35 pm Fri Apr 5 EDTRemoved

Giannis defense is not incredible. He gets assigned to the weakest shooting player. Last night it was Simmons. That allows Giannis to free lance and get weak side blocks and steals. For most of the game Giannis isnt even guarding his man. The best peri -14

Serious I can t understand how Giannis can be the MVP this year4:35 pm Fri Apr 5 EDTRemoved

Rebounding? LOL. Empty stat. Giannis averages over 8 uncontested rebounds per game. Best record? Because he gets to play the shitty East teams. -17

Serious I can t understand how Giannis can be the MVP this year4:35 pm Fri Apr 5 EDTRemoved

Some dude who spams making layups and dunks because the other team cant double team him is not that impressive. A dude who literally misses 70% of his shots outside of 3 feet. Put Giannis on a team without a ton of shooters and he would be double teamed -14

Serious I can t understand how Giannis can be the MVP this year4:35 pm Fri Apr 5 EDTRemoved

Why is Giannis a DPOTY candidate? he rarely guards the other teams best player. He usually is guarding a weak shooter so he can roam and play free safety. His rim protection and block shots are not elite. -5

Serious I can t understand how Giannis can be the MVP this year4:35 pm Fri Apr 5 EDTRemoved

So why didnt KD/Curry even end up in the top5 the last 2 years? 0

Serious I can t understand how Giannis can be the MVP this year4:35 pm Fri Apr 5 EDTRemoved

What about the 8 uncontested rebounds Giannis grabs a game? That has to count for something? Or that he has an eFG% of 32% outside of 3 feet. -2

You can make a legitimate argument that if were including high-school college and pro basketball accomplishments Kareem is not only the GOAT but hes also the GOAT by a mile Actually you can make the argument that Jordan debate is a lot closer than a l3:46 pm Tue Apr 9 EDTRemoved

KAJ has a much stronger GOAT argument then Lebron. 6x MVP 6x Champion 27x All League 15x Top 5 in MVP voting (Lebron only has 13x) 1st in Career scoring 4th in Career rebounds 2nd in Career Blocks 1

You can make a legitimate argument that if were including high-school college and pro basketball accomplishments Kareem is not only the GOAT but hes also the GOAT by a mile Actually you can make the argument that Jordan debate is a lot closer than a l3:46 pm Tue Apr 9 EDTRemoved

RECORD: 15x Top5 in the NBA. That is absolutely nuts. He was considered a Top5 player for 15 years. Lebron only has done it 13 times. And now imagine if KAJ came straight out of high school like Lebron? He probably has 18x Top5 in MVP. 1

Weak competition? Lebron is the King of weak competition with his free rides to the finals every year in the East. The first year he plays a West schedule he gets hurt and is 10 games out of the playoffs. Playing with other great players? Come on bro. L 1

Dwayne Wade is greater then James Worthy. Kyrie Irving may go down as much better then Worthy also. But the main point is you are forgetting the teams of the 80s were stacked. So of course KAJ has a stacked team. Sorry but KAJ destroys Lebron in almost 1

We should rate players based on SKILLS not STATS 4:26 pm Wed Apr 10 EDTRemoved

But how is he getting those 20 good looks? Is it because he is surrounded by 4 shooters? And if so is the team sacrificing defense by playing 4 shooters? -10

We should rate players based on SKILLS not STATS 4:26 pm Wed Apr 10 EDTRemoved

Please explain how skills is more unreliable? If you watched 200 Steph Curry games it would be obvious he is an elite shooter? right? Or that KD can score efficiently anywhere on the court. Or that Giannis is great at the rim. Or that Harden is amazing -7

We should rate players based on SKILLS not STATS 4:26 pm Wed Apr 10 EDTRemoved

But is that because he plays with worse teammates? Or bad coaching? Stats should support SKILLS. Not the other way around. -3

We should rate players based on SKILLS not STATS 4:26 pm Wed Apr 10 EDTRemoved

Misusing stats is terrible. Stats themself can be a good tool. Problem is stats are driving player evaluation instead of observation of skills. We should observe the skills FIRST. Then use stats as one of the supports for the observation. -2

Kyrie is a top5 scorer. 0

We should rate players based on SKILLS not STATS 4:26 pm Wed Apr 10 EDTRemoved

No he isnt. Kyrie is not elite off the ball. He is not an elite playmaker or tempo setter. he is not elite on defense or rebounding. Skill wise he is a top5 scorer. -2

We should rate players based on SKILLS not STATS 4:26 pm Wed Apr 10 EDTRemoved

I can see that. But at this point it is stats that are driving the conversation. Instead we should be watching the games and observing skills. Then support those observations with stats when possible. But most times just with observation its obvious. Do -1

Lebron has been great with many skills: Attacking the rim. Playmaking. Controlling tempo. Defense (in his prime). -1

You Bron stans better hope that the Warriors don t lose this year10:28 am Thu Apr 11 EDTRemoved

I think Mike could have. Lets put it this way. Mike closes out Game3 in 2017. Cavs up 6 with 2 minutes left. Mike closes that out. So the series is tied 2-2. So Mike definitely had a chance to beat the 2017 Warriors. -1

You Bron stans better hope that the Warriors don t lose this year10:28 am Thu Apr 11 EDTRemoved

This is a no win situation for Bron Stans. 1. Warriors win. KD 3 peats. Something Lebron never did. Curry passes Lebron with his 4th Ring....all during Lebrons prime. You think anyone could have won 4 rings during Jordans prime? LOL 2. Warriors lose. Sh 1

The last player to have as many PTS AST REB BLKS STLS shoot over 50 as Ben Simmons did this season was 17-18 LeBron James if you disregard BLKS 81-82 Magic Johnson joins the list 10:29 am Thu Apr 11 EDTRemoved

Stop bringing up FG% A totally horrible stat if not mentioned with other stats like 3FG% and TS% -9

So its pretty bad then. 50% TS is horrible. -6

What do y all think about my top 5 2:12 pm Thu Apr 11 EDTRemoved

Hard to believe that in 2 months Steph Curry will have more Rings then Lebron James. And Curry did all this in Lebrons prime. -1

So Rings dont matter? What does? Stats? LOL 1

Give one reason why Harden Giannis should win MVP and another reason for why they shouldn t1:48 pm Fri Apr 12 EDTRemoved

Giannis cant shoot beyond 3 feet. But still put up massive numbers. Harden can shoot anywhere. But he missed a couple shots. -3

So what does Giannis do better than KD to be crowned better 1:57 pm Fri Apr 12 EDTRemoved

And KD made the Finals with 1 All Star in 2012 at age 23. 3

So what does Giannis do better than KD to be crowned better 1:57 pm Fri Apr 12 EDTRemoved

Impactful in the regular season maybe. Since KD coasts. But playoffs? Come on bro. At age 23 KD already made the Finals and 2 WCF. At 23 Giannis hasnt even won a playoff series in the much weaker East. 1

So what does Giannis do better than KD to be crowned better 1:57 pm Fri Apr 12 EDTRemoved

You dont become the best player in the world with 1 great regular season. You might have the BEST SEASON but you are not the BEST PLAYER. 1

So what does Giannis do better than KD to be crowned better 1:57 pm Fri Apr 12 EDTRemoved

KDs team was extremely young. Westbrook was 23. Ibaka 22. Harden 22. The Bucks are much older and in their prime. Lopez, Mirotic, Bledsoe, Middleton, Brown, ect. The Bucks go a solid 10 deep. Both Bledsoe and Middleton are boarderline All Stars. The 1

The whole world is down on Simmons When Giannis is actually the same 10:43 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

He also was held down to 16 and 22 points in the most important games against Boston last year. He didnt score a single bucket in the 4th quarter of an elimination game last year. -13

He sure is Jennifer 0

The whole world is down on Simmons When Giannis is actually the same 10:43 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Pistons without Blake are a 20 win team. Also with the dumbest coach in the playoffs. Im actually disappointed that Giannis didnt score 40 against that pathetic team/coach -4

The whole world is down on Simmons When Giannis is actually the same 10:43 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Ridiculous. Near Lebron prime tier? The dude hasnt even won a playoff series against a team with a winning record yet. 0

The whole world is down on Simmons When Giannis is actually the same 10:43 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Exactly. Im not saying Simmons is the same as Giannis now. But they have the same weakness. -1

The whole world is down on Simmons When Giannis is actually the same 10:43 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

I disagree. Plant a shot blocking center in the paint and lets see if Giannis can consistently beat his man and the shot blocker waiting for him at the rim. His efficency would drop massively. The way it is now is Lopez draws out the Center. So Giannis -10

The whole world is down on Simmons When Giannis is actually the same 10:43 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Giannis can score because he has the perfect team built around him to hide his weakness. Ben does not. 0

The whole world is down on Simmons When Giannis is actually the same 10:43 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Come on bro. Ben is in his 2nd year. Giannis is in his 6th. How can you say Ben is so terrible. Ben has one in a generation court vision. Build a better team around him and he would flourish. -4

The whole world is down on Simmons When Giannis is actually the same 10:43 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

But heres the difference. Ben attacks the rim and there are 2 guys waiting for him. Giannis attacks the rim and its empty. If Ben had a more empty paint to attack he would do it more often. Even Lebron in his prime had a hard time attacking the paint wit -3

The whole world is down on Simmons When Giannis is actually the same 10:43 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Bottom line is Giannis still didnt show up in an elimination Game7. He didnt score a single point in the last 6 minutes of an elimination game. -1

The Warriors will absolutely SMASH the Rockets this year 11:29 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Im realistic. My Clippers dont have a chance -17

The Warriors will absolutely SMASH the Rockets this year 11:29 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

They wont switch Cousins on Harden. -9

The Warriors will absolutely SMASH the Rockets this year 11:29 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

No he cant. He shot 25% 3FG in last years WCF -4

The Warriors will absolutely SMASH the Rockets this year 11:29 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

It does work that way. Simple trap on Harden. Harden passes to Capela, Warriors rotate and leave House Jr open. Good luck. -3

The Warriors will absolutely SMASH the Rockets this year 11:29 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

But it really is that simple. Just look at the talent. Warriors blow them away. If the Warriors try hard they destroy them. -5

Lebron making 2007 Finals Most Overrated Accomplishment ever1:30 pm Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Lebron making 2007 Finals Most Overrated Accomplishment ever1:30 pm Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Bull. Pistons were a full 3 years removed from World Champion. The Pistons would be a 6th seed in the West. KD at 23 was more impressive. Beat defending champion Mavericks with Dirk. Beat late prime Kobe, Gasol, and Bynum. Beat Spurs who won 20 in a 0

Lebron making 2007 Finals Most Overrated Accomplishment ever1:30 pm Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Who cares. KD was 23 years old when he beat: Defending champion Mavericks with Dirk. Kobe, Gasol, and Bynum with Kobe still in his late prime. 60+ win Spur team that won 20 games in a row. That is impressive. Beating 2 teams without a winning record 1

Lebron making 2007 Finals Most Overrated Accomplishment ever1:30 pm Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Dude that was 2004. Not 2007. Massacred? He shot 41% FG in that series. It was Daniel Gibson who closed out the series with 31 points not Lebron. -1

Lebron making 2007 Finals Most Overrated Accomplishment ever1:30 pm Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Any top10 all time player makes the Finals against that pathetic East. Larry Bird joined a 35 win team and made the Finals 2 years later. Magic, KAJ, Duncan, Shaq, Jordan, ect. They all beat those weak ass teams. The Pistons were a 6th seed if they play 1

Lebron making 2007 Finals Most Overrated Accomplishment ever1:30 pm Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

So prime Dirk was not real competition? So late prime Kobe with prime Gasol and Bynum isnt real competition? So Spurs with Duncan, Parker, Ginobili, and Kawhi isnt real competition? 1

Hypothetical scenario If Warriors loses to the Rockets last year would Steve Kerr get fired not extended 2:54 pm Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

He should get fired. He would be responsible for 2 of the worse upsets in NBA history. 1. 73-win team lose after being up 3-1 2. Super team with 2 MVPs and 2 other All NBA players lose to the Rockets. That should be an INSTA-FIRE -12

Hypothetical scenario If Warriors loses to the Rockets last year would Steve Kerr get fired not extended 2:54 pm Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Why not fire him? He is given an all time great roster and gets upset massively twice in 3 years. That is enough to fire him. -1

If Giannis leads the Bucks to the finals similar to a LeBron 2012 playoffs will he be the best player in the league heading into next season 2:50 pm Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

That is silly. So Magic could not be the best playing with KAJ? That is dumb. Shaq could not be the best in the world playing with Kobe? Especially since KD has clearly outplayed Curry the last 2 Finals. KD is averaging 32/9/5 on 67% TS with 2.5 block 8

If Giannis leads the Bucks to the finals similar to a LeBron 2012 playoffs will he be the best player in the league heading into next season 2:50 pm Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

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 -8

Yesterday I said Ben Simmons was basically Giannis on a poorly constructed team Proven right 10:31 am Tue Apr 16 EDTRemoved

Is it? If Ben was surrounded by shooters he would be able to drive into an empty paint like Giannis does. What wing would be quick enough and big enough to stop Ben from attacking an empty paint? But with the 76ers weak shooting there is always at least -3

Yesterday I said Ben Simmons was basically Giannis on a poorly constructed team Proven right 10:31 am Tue Apr 16 EDTRemoved

Ben is in his 2nd year. Giannis in his 6th. Giannis team is perfectly built to hide his massive flaws. Bens team isnt. Throw Ben on a team loaded with shooters and he would be putting up massive numbers also. -19

Yesterday I said Ben Simmons was basically Giannis on a poorly constructed team Proven right 10:31 am Tue Apr 16 EDTRemoved

Surround Ben with shooters and he will be an MVP candidate also. What wing could stop Ben from getting to the rim? No one. Problem is the 76ers lack shooting so there is always someone else in the paint waiting for Ben. -2

Stop. The East was trash last year. The Celtics made the ECF being lead by a 20 year old rookie. Raptors, Celtics, and Pacers had no one to defend Lebron. There was no Kawhi, Iguadala, Giannis, KD, ect on those teams. All those teams had crappy big wing -2

This is a top 5 list. Did you want me to leave Giannis off of it? If I did I still would be called a hater. -6

10 of 13 Giannis rebounds are uncontested. pretty useless stat. again this is part of curation. I dont want to release a massive data set of stats. I just select the stats I feel tell the story of the games so far. -5

Why? Top 5 Players (KD, Lebron, Steph, Harden, Giannis) in the playoff so far. Makes total sense 0

LOL. Im blind. Still give Steph an A grade because of his no show in Game 4. -1

It was JUSTICE that KD went to the Warriors 9:11 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

Did KD force a trade? Was he a locker room cancer? No. He gave everything to OKC for 9 years. He did everything right. And still he got a Dynasty STOLEN from him because of cheap owner. This is justice. A Dynasty was stolen from KD. So now he is owed a -1

It was JUSTICE that KD went to the Warriors 9:11 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

Harden was 22 years old. Do we really expect a 22 year old to play awesome in the Finals against Lebron in his absolute prime? Do you remember how Lebron played in his first Finals? 39% FG, 25% 3FG, 6 turnovers a game. He played awful. Then Lebron played -2

It was JUSTICE that KD went to the Warriors 9:11 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

This isnt an attack on Westbrook at all. The point is OKC never built a team good enough to win. They never got the 3rd star to replace Harden. And they never put enough shooting on the team. Westbrook is not the problem. -1

exactly. The league wanted to save Lebrons legacy. 0

It was JUSTICE that KD went to the Warriors 9:11 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

That was AFTER KD left. Go look a the 9 years KD was there. They were CHEAP not wanting to pay Harden. In 7 years they were below the Tax line. The other 2 years they paid a grand total of $8 million in luxury tax. While KD was there they NEVER went o 0

Giannis put up the lowest TS on the Bucks in Round 18:49 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

Different era and different system. The Bucks system gives Giannis 1 vs 1 matchups all night long and an empty paint to drive into. -8

Giannis put up the lowest TS on the Bucks in Round 18:49 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

Are you seriously going to compare stats from an entire playoff run (including against elite teams) to what Giannis did against a team that wins 30 games in the regular season with a banged up Blake? You basically made my point for me. Lebron TS% vs e -6

Giannis put up the lowest TS on the Bucks in Round 18:49 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

How is this cherry picking? I pulled the stats from the entire series. And Giannis had the lowest TS% on the team. -4

Giannis put up the lowest TS on the Bucks in Round 18:49 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

So is 63% FT and 23% 3FG that much better? -3

Giannis put up the lowest TS on the Bucks in Round 18:49 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

Harden isnt about TS% Giannis obvious should have a higher TS% since all his shots are in the paint. -8

for bringing up a FACT? -2

Giannis put up the lowest TS on the Bucks in Round 18:49 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

So Giannis is missing free throws and 3 point shots on purpose now? LOL. -5

It was JUSTICE that KD went to the Warriors 9:11 am Tue Apr 23 EDTRemoved

You can judge Giannis as not being the best player in the world based on that one series. Because we are talking about the NOW. OKC judged Hardens FUTURE. I easily give Harden a max contract as I easily give Giannis a Super Max contract. Saying a play -1

They are very close. KD is the far superior perimeter defender. Far superior. Giannis is slightly better at rim protection and post defense. Dont let the hype fool you. Highlights dont make you a better player. The last 3 years both KD and Giannis are -5

Please tell me what Giannis is elite in on defense? He never guards the other teams best player. He usually guards the other teams worst shooter so he can hang around in the paint and get weak side blocks and play free safety. Giannis is not an elite pe -3

I have him rated very good on defense. Perimeter defense - 3 average - Giannis cant guard elite wings or PGs on the perimeter. He does not have the foot speed. Off ball/team defense - 4 very good. Very good weak side shot blocker. Versatility - 3 aver -3

The 20 Skills of Basketball Rate players based on SKILLS not STATS 9:35 am Wed Apr 24 EDTRemoved

who cares. Are you going to say a guard averaging 0.8 blocks is also an elite shot blocker? Besides Giannis plays a defacto Center. He hangs around the paint almost the entire game because he is usually guarding the weakest shooter on the team. He isnt -2

Giannis is guarding almost 17 shots per game at the rim. Dude is basically a Center. But he has the benefit of having Brook right next to him. Those FG% numbers in the restricted area are misleading. Darius Bertans looks elite according to those numbers. -11

DPOTY is a regular season award. Not an award for playing the Houston Rockets. Giannis cant guard elite wings. If he could how come he never starts against elite wings? he is always guarding the other teams worst shooter. -13

Giannis does nothing elite on Defense Why is he a candidate for DPOTY 11:04 am Wed Apr 24 EDTRemoved

1.5 blocks is not impressive for a guy who exclusively plays PF or Center. Also most games he is guarding the other teams worse shooter so he is camping in the paint 90% of the game. For context KD averages 1.5 blocks playing small forward and guarding sm -11

They are true. Giannis is always assigned on the worst shooter on the team. He then camps in the paint almost the entire game. Players drive and try to avoid Lopez and then Giannis comes over for the blindside block. He is basically playing free safety o -5
