    Ok - what did you mean by "I don't get the love"

    He's overrated, in this man's opinion. I'll take LBJ, AD, Steph, Kawhi, KD ahead of him this season on my team.
    He's a great regular season guy but I haven't seen a killer, Mamba-type killer instinct, yet.

    OK, you take KD coming off an Achilles injury and I get Giannis. Deal.

    You have two guys in your Top 5 who played about 30 games last year, have had multiple significant injuries, and are in their early 30s. If you're saying "best version" is better than Giannis, maybe, but Giannis is also a beast that's going to get you a gaudy regular season record. Like I said, you can gameplan for him, and I think the best playoff teams can handle him, but it isn't his fault the second best player on his team is Kris Middleton. Does he need to a LeBron-to-Miami thing to prove himself? Kobe also didn't ever do it alone - Whenever he won a championship, he had a fellow All-NBA first or second teamer, whether you're talking Shaq or Pau Gasol.

    What you haven't seen is a semi-reliable outside shot. Makes the Bucks very easy to defend when no one other than Lopez is knocking down 3s.

    Giannis is real deal and I wish he was on my team

    Every time I watch the Bucks I wind up getting pissed at the other Bucks who shoot the team out of the game.

    GA is an incredible player who just cannot do everything, yet.

    Hopefully he will report in the best shape of his life.

    More likely to be filed in the "what could have been" file. Seems like the perfect fit for Golden State's offense, at least what it used to be:
