Giannis scores in 2 ways only, getting to the basket or the foul line. Both are tougher in the playoffs.
He is a great player and will probably be the MVP, but i can't rank him as the best in the game with no jumper.
Good points. He needs to get a jumper good enough to keep the D honest. It's doesn't have to be the best. BUT when people say he's better than a peak Bron, I just LMAO!!! Bron's scoring skillset was much better. Bron is a better passer. Was an All League defender. And just as dominant a scorer by the numbers.
Greek Freak's mark is having the best positional versatility in the league. And from there, being arguably the best all around player (scoring-passing-boards-defense) as a package in the league. BUT the most versatile player OR the best all around player ISN'T always the best player in the league.
The most premium asset in the sport IS still alpha dog level scoring. And u have guys like KD, Curry, Bron, Harden, Kawhi, AD, Embid, PG, Lillard, etc. who are just as good or better than Giannis in that regard. And many of the guys I named ARE STILL considered great all around players and very versatile in their own right! No doubt Giannis is a top 3-5 player in the world though!
