Now that the dust has settled, who are the early favorite contenders for MVP. Looks like a 3-man race between Giannis, AD, and PG. Maybe Curry depending how they do as a team. If Giannis wins 60+ games in the East, it will be hard to give to a player with another all-NBA team player next to him.

Nike commissioned another graffiti work from Same84 the guy who did the Antetokoumpo court at Sepolia.

It's really going to depend on how Giannis approaches the regular season. His comments after the ECF seemed to indicate that he may take things a little easier.. then again i just don't know if it's in his nature to not go full throttle. Now that's he's won one, I'd like to see him spend the regular season working on the weaker points in his game, especially against the easier teams.

A second off season under Sullivan getting rid of all the remains of that jumpshot Sweeney inflicted on him and however many thousand reps. As for MVP I'm going with Giannis duking it out with Curry.

If klay wasnt injured i would have picked Curry for MVP now that KD is gone and his numbers will go up.As is though,i dont think GS will win enough games.

My favorites are Giannis,AD and Embiid(if he remains healthy).

Not a fan of the colorway but the inspiration comes from his nickname in China, "Letter Bro".

I wonder if Delly and peak sports sue Giannis over the similarities of his logo?

Its awesome to hear but it guarantees nothing. It just means that we need to keep winning and we need to get to the finals. If we continue to fail to get to the finals, frustration will set in and hes going to look around and realize he could be paired with better talent somewhere else.

We should have two great opportunities in a row here to do that. If Giannis improves and is the same player all the way through the playoffs i love our chances...

I dont even care about football anymore, just start Bucks season!

OBVIOUSLY there are no guarantees until he actually signs. But those are still encouraging comments.
