Giannis is a two way player in the third seed , he's the MVP , he's been as good as anyone offensively but not everybody has been as good as him Defensively , he's clearly the MVP

theres different expectations for different players and teams, bucks focused on a ring, knicks just happy to improve, which if fair for what theyre expectations were along with what julius randles expectations for the season was

Nobody lied or took anything out of context Stephen A. You're scared to call out KD, James Harden or CP3, but love calling out Russ and Giannis. KD only won because of the weakest move ever, but his mama called and you got scared. None of the rest have rings, but you only call out who you aren't scared of or friends with.

The bucks need to show up in the playoffs they will earn respect so I agree with Stephen A becuase it is the regular season sure it’s a great win but we need to see what the bucks have in the post season

Meanwhile Doncic & Lillard are giving the Lakers the option of either playing Steph or Kawhi/PG13 in the first round! That is pure wizardry going on over in the West! Absolute nightmare scenario the Lakers tank job will cost them dearly if they don’t pull it together fast!

Nets trying hard to slide into that 3rd seed so they can get Boston & the Heat in back to back rounds. Very wise they don’t want the Knicks in the 2nd round or the Wizards in the 1st. True geniuses on this years Nets team. Very well done no one even suspects it.

See what’s gonna happen is everyone is saying nobody can beat the nets with all three but the bucks will take them to 7 and lose and everyone will say the bucks choked again but everyone is saying nobody can beat them so why do the bucks have different standards, the whole offseason is gonna be giannis can’t win in the playoffs but we expect them to lose this year

I don’t blame stephen A Smith. When a team chokes in the playoffs but does well during the regular season that’s what you always expect. Middleton is not a legit star. Giannis sucks when it counts but it’s the bucks. No one expects them to win. They don’t have the personnel to have a winning team in the playoffs And giannis is the invisible man! It’s given. Until I see different, I’m looking at the bucks like it’s the wizards

Since when a win doesn't mean something? Ffs respect the game of basketball.. If the roles were reversed we would hear Giannis fell short, he doesn't have a shooting game, a post up game, etc etc.. You can say whatever, Giannis mentality is as it should be. You face off a big team like Nets you give them no quarter, not even in an exercise game.

As a Nets fan, I’m not worried about the Bucks at all. Two pretty close games without our top floor general on the court. Also I don’t believe Durant is at full Durant form just yet. Playoffs will be fun.

I disagree with Stephan A because they beat the nets 2 days ago, giannis had 49 and kd had 42 and the bucks won, they played again kd had 32, giannis had 36, and kyrie had 39, and the bucks still won. So yeah stephan A should care, and he does to good in the playoffs to.

Max says something that makes sense for a change. Indeed, Harden is key to success of the Nets. He is a top 3 PG in the league. His impact will be significant in a guard oriented league.

Why are they hating on Giannis and the Bucks whereas they are praising Joel Embiid and the Sixers?? What have they done in the last 3 years?? The Sixers lost in the 2nd round twice in 2018 & 2019 and a 1st round exit last season... The Bucks had a 1st round exit in 2018 but they took the Celtics to 7 whereas Philly only manages to took them in 5... They made the ECF in 2019 and I'm pretty sure Giannis did better against the Raptors than Embiid did against them(Jimmy is the one who force them to a game 7)

Ok I think in order for the bucks to silence the critics, they need to at LEAST get to the NBA finals, I don’t really think it matters a lot if they win or not, just them getting to the finals to show they’re capable of doing so.
