Giannis is giving the Bucks too many chances to win a championship. This recent loss to the Heat was the fifth time since Giannis joined the team that they have failed to reach the Finals. The closest they got was last season and they lost to the Raptors. The team mainly consists of older veteran players with big long term deals now. Instead of holding the GM and their coach responsible for the recent playoff ouster to Miami, the Bucks said they won't trade Giannis and will try to get CP3 to replace Eric Bledsoe as starting PG. That isn't much of an upgrade and it makes the Bucks older. Also, no word on offering Giannis the supermax. Bucks GM Jim Horst rescinded Jabari Parker's offer and made him an UFA and he is now a rising player with the Kings. I think he let Malcolm Brogdon go and this affected Giannis to the point of saying he missed him. Brogdon would have helped the Bucks in the playoffs more than Bledsoe as he can shoot the 3-ball. He was also another young player like Giannis on the team.
I don't think Giannis has said anything about the bad coaching nor about the moves GM Jim Horst made except for missing Eric Brogdon. Maybe he liked Jabari Parker, too.
Do you think Giannis is doing the right thing or is he a putz? He does not have a player's option on his last year like most superstars in the league and it's unprecedented that he's talking with the ownership over the direction of the team. The writing has been on the wall for some time and he should refuse the supermax and force his way out of Milwaukee. Hopefully, he'll demand a trade to the Warriors, too, before he forces his way out as UFA after 2021!
