That would be a lateral move at best. So no, Boston wouldn't jump all over such deal. Boston has a much better chance to win it all in the next 5+ years than Bucks will ever have. Who has a top 5 player again? Boston can live without such trade. In a hypothetical scenario where Giannis asks out Bucks wouldn't be able to ask for everything, at least not from Boston.
Can you tell me what exactly Giannis offers over Brown, Tatum combo? Brown and Tatum can shoot, defend multiple positions. Tatum has that 1st option talent. I think this whole "you can't win without top 5 player" is utter BS. Top 5 player should've swung that Celtics vs Bucks matchup in Bucks favor. It looked more like Middleton was the one who was keeping Bucks hopes alive.
what was the last team to win a title without a top 5 player? maybe dallas if you want to put dirk just outside the top 5 that year?
Probably SA. Still though I'm not sure how replicable that is.
The cold hard truth is a foursome of Kyrie, Hayward, Brown and Giannis stands a very real chance of toppling GS THIS year with Steven's as a coach and is still very young.
Problem is Boston fans are almost locking in Tatum as a top 10-15 player. He has a LONG way to go for that and it's pretty far from a lock.
Truth is unless Boston is throwing in Ainge and/or Steven's the Bucks are better off rolling the dice and wishing upon a star that Giannis turns into a truly all time great that can will a team through the playoffs instead of wishing Tatum gets close to being as good as Giannis is right now and hoping those draft picks turn into something special.
Bottom line. The Bucks aren't trading Giannis
