And let's be honest, barring a career altering injury, Giannis is gonna be universally recognized as a Top-20ish player of all-time. He's arguably already had two Top-10 regular seasons ever at 25 years old. The real question for me is whether or not he'll be challenging for a Top-15 or even Top-10 spot when it's all done.

I can see a ship or two would put him top 15. Top 10 he would have to have a near perfect back end of his career to reach that high depending who you have in you 7-10 spot.

The Oscar thing has to be a joke right? It's tough to rank current players but I get wanting to get Giannis on the list somewhere as you see what's coming. Like remember when Shaq was put on the all 50 year team in his like 3-4th year or whenever it was.

The longevity vs peak ability thing is tough too and no clear answer. Like if you're gonna go on career total contributions chances are you can't not have LBJ #1. Sorry, MJ basically cut out 2 prime years and 2-3 more near prime years and didn't play at all. By the end barring injury LBJ will be #1 in pts, top 3-4 in assists, I'd guess top 25-15ish in rebounds depending on when he quits. With at least 3 titles, MVPs and clearly being the best player in the world for 15 years straight, at least.

Getting out of the MJ/LBJ wormhole on that topic though another is Bird. I think this and CBS had him 8. Due to starting late and ending early he had a short window, so how do you rank him. If I'm picking best player at their peak I probably put him #3 after the obvious 2. But, factor in the longevity and I don't think its wrong to drop him. Though I'd still have him over Magic in that debate, basically equally shortened careers but I just think Bird was better since MAgic couldn't really shoot. Another tough thing to factor is what rules, now or 30-40 years ago. Guys like Wilt/KAJ vault ahead of of guys like Bird/Magic more easily then. Play now though and a shooter like Bird has incredible value.

just bought an autographed Giannis jersey from the NBA store, worth every penny when I frame it and put that bad boy up on the wall

Anybody else wondering how Giannis will do from the FT line and the arc when they start playing again?

I honestly think he's solved the FT issue. The discipline of his 5-6 bounces looked permanent before they shut down. The 3 pt, though, is probably going to be a struggle.

Am I the only one that wants to see the progress made on his guitar?
Work ethic + giant hands + loads of free time. I'd be surprised if he is not shredding insane solos at this point.

I’m usually real skeptical of the “I want to be here forever” comments because people are complex and things change and people change their minds, but it’s nice to hear things like this. It definitely makes me feel a lil better about this summer.
