The only way the bucks accept that is if Giannis demands a trade only to GSW, and even then it's doubtful considering how owners have reacted to demands like that recently...
Klay outside of GSW is a complete unknown... He doesn't get you Giannis, even with a lotto pick thrown in, unless there's a lot of pressure being exerted.

This is a weak ass draft class too.

I have no idea how Giannis tricked that many smart writers to vote for him for MVP and DPOY.

I get the advanced metrics on Giannis. Statistically, it's one of the best seasons ever by advanced measures.

But.. he played 30 MPG. In an absolutely brutal Eastern Conference where Brooklyn and Orlando made the playoffs. An Eastern Conference that includes the Hawks, Pistons, Cavs, Knicks, Wizards, Hornets, Bulls. When you're playing the majority of your games against watered down terrible competition, no s**t you only have to play 30 MPG and you can pad the stats while you're out there.

The Lakers were involved in so many more meaningful games that went down to the wire in a tough west and LeBron carried them offensively.

I'm stunned Giannis got that many first place votes. And I'm stunned he tricked a lot of smart basketball writers.

The all ex-Lakers team looks quite good now:

Zubac - Bryant - Wagner
Nance - Randle
Ingram - Bonga
Russell - Hart - Mykhailiuk
Ball - Clarkson

Bummed about the Lakers loss last night....but the Heat beating Boston kind of cheered me up lol. Suck it Boston.
Yeah you also have 17 titles..but winning most of them over 40 years ago is meh.

Talk about collusion, do those chips in the 60s really count tho?

11 titles won in LA in the modern era, while y’all living on “success” from 2 generations ago :lol:

Best case scenario Lakers vs Heat.
If the Lakers lose in the Finals, I won't be as upset versus us losing against the Celtics.

Today might be the first time in my life that I'm rooting for the Celtics. If they win and Lakers can take game 5 then the rest can be invaluable.
