Default Convince me why Giannis isn't the best player in the east and a top 5 player

People be talking reckless about my boy. Dude is the by far the best player in the east, not kawhit, embiid and some fools have the nerve to throw oladipos name into that discussion

He's also top 5, he's better than AD and Harden. The only thing that has stopped Giannis from going balls deep in the league with no lube was he had a terrible coach. Now he finally has a great coach and a good squad. By the end of the season Giannis will be top 3 and by the end of next season, best player in the NBA. Screenshot this, you saw this here first. Get ready for the new face of the NBA, Giannis, aka The Greek Freak, aka The Greek God

I guess drose is the best player on the wolves because he won an mvp in like what 2012 or some shit?

This is 2018 going on 2019 not ****ing 2016. Giannis has improved greatly since then. If all you have to hang your hat on is shit kawhi did 2-3 years ago then

Also Giannis better scorer right now, better rebounder, better shot blocker, better playmaker. Kawhis perimeter defence is overrated af

And looking at how they both performed in the pre-season kawhi has no legs, dude played like a bum. You can't tell me Kawhi looked like a top 5 player in the pre-season. All the best players showed out, except for kawhi despite getting a lot of minutes for the pre-season and shots.

I'll wait until I get the word from Milbuck on whether you're allowed to have a rooting interest for Giannis.

Until you get green lighted, you shall remain nothing more than a peasant who beats off to still pics of reindeer porn.

what do you mean what am i on? your justification as to why kawhi is better now is because he won accolades in the past. Hence why i brought up d-rose to show how retarded that logic is.

Appreciate it Stamkos. The Church of Giannis rejects no fan, even brain damaged glue sniffers like Opie.

That said, as far as actual basketball analysis goes, I would direct any and all Giannis discussions towards elite posters like myself.

He still doesnít have a complete game. Not a great perimeter shooter. Inconsistent midrange game. Donít get me wrong. He could very well be the best in the world someday. But someone like Kawhi Leonard has a much more complete game.

No perimeter game? : lol next time watch games instead of going off narrative casual. He's improved his shooting. If this preseason is anything to go by, he's going to shot at least 35% on 3s this season. So far he's taking 10 3s in the preseason and has made 5 and everyone and their mother has said he's an improved shooter. And even he has stated he's going to start hitting them now and so far he's kept his promise. So try again casual

Yeah, 35% from 3 while that is a vast improvement unfortunately isn’t knocking anyone’s socks off in todays league in an 82 game reg season grind. Yes, I don’t watch every bucks game. Im from LA and I’m a Lakers fan ya got me. Again, he isn’t even in his prime yet. Let’s calm down and see what happens. I’m rooting for Greek Freak I really am. I like him and Embiid and Anthony Davis for the coming post-Lebron decade. But at this point in his career he isnt the all around player that Kawhi Leonard is, I’m sorry. It’s not up for debate. With that being said, maybe the Bucks overachieve and win 50 games and Giannis is a viable MVP candidate. It could happen. It’s gonna be a crazy year. The Bucks will win more games this year. Believe they won like 45,46? games last year. This year they’ll do better.

If he starts showing consistency with his jumpshot, he will challenge the absolute best in this league.

I still don't like his form much, but if it starts going in more, it's going to be scary.
