I'd call it a Completely Random Guess With The Greatest Chance Of Being Correct Of All The Random Guesses About Where Giannis Will Sign If He Doesn't Sign With The Bucks.
It just rolls off the tongue.
It's not some brave prediction that someone who doesn't sign with their current team would favor going to the Warriors.
Yeah, at a certain point, it's just like, "Who can you conceive of pulling it off?" You look at the teams who have a recent history of successful heists.
I think Toronto is absolutely the biggest threat, personally. But if the question is where will Giannis be playing in 2022, I think it's:
<huge gap, 80% chance he stays, imo>
4. Denver -- these would be most likely by trade if he balks at the extension next summer
5. Golden State
7. Miami -- these would be trades for a lesser package once he hits FA, by this point I think it's really unlikely, and Toronto would be in play in that scenario as well
The field; I could rank order them but it feels like a bigger waste of time.
