Giannis, you just had a baby. The Bay Area is great for raising a family, ask Steph.

Go move to Atherton next to Steph, it's near Chase Center, also near this amazing Greek restaurant:

Atherton and the new Chase Center is great even if you have gephyrophobia like Chris Webber. Just don't wander into East Palo Alto by mistake.

EPA is a LOT better than it was back in the day. I used to go to the Popeye's there and every time I'd hear gunshots.

Supposedly Mr Hewlett and Mr Packard give tens of millions of high end surveillance equipment that made drug dealing MUCH harder.

It happened once before, so I won’t say it can’t happen for sure. But man, the odds are still very slim.

I’m not convinced that Giannis is the type of dude to have a whole franchise and its fans turn on him. He’s been a feel good story his whole career. A move like this will have the league turning on him a bit. It wouldn’t be as bad as the KD thing, because we are down right now. But it would be close and for sure the Milwaukee fan base will never forgive him.

I think the top players are all aware that any time they leave their original team the fans will hate them to some extent. But this past offseason AD left the Pels to go to the title favorite Lakers and it was pretty quiet so there are recent models where the backlash was not that big.

I'm not satisfied until it's Curry, Klay, Green, Giannis, Anthony Davis ;)
Looking forward to 2073....bye bye pouting moody Durant...hello again the 73 win style of hoops!

Also, the Warriors would have to give up a lot to get Giannis, probably at least 2-3 FRPs (2 high level), plus another starter (Wiggins or maybe Draymond). So unlike KD, it can't realistically be viewed as getting a top player for "free".

But, I also thought AD was the type who wanted to stay where he was and that happened.

That only works because there are so many Lebron stans that know Lebron needs more help and they disregard logic.

Atherton has room for huge properties but with the kind of money he'll get, something on Pacific Heights with views of the Bay and the GG Bridge would be a more interesting choice.

All the tech billionaires bought there.

As for Giannis, if they fail to make the Finals, after another big regular season, why would the Bucks want to extend him? It's not going to work any better once he gets a big contract and they can't add any more stars.

Middleton and their other shooters are going to have to perform in the postseason.

But regardless, the frustration level Giannis would feel would be out of this world.

Plus he wants to play with Steph in the Bay and has told him as much.

A few things have to go right to give them a chance At Giannis and the Bucks losing is step 1.
