Yep. Happy to be wrong about a paid Middleton being a lazy Middleton. He upped his game and couldn’t be happier to be wrong on this one.

Great. Another day, another relitigation of the contract.

How many here would still sign Khris if they knew he would continue to have birthdays?

Has only had one since the new deal yeah? Too early to say if this is an ongoing trend to worry about.

Giannis is so ball dominant that it's going to be almost impossible for any other Buck to win FMVP.

I don't see how Giannis is really that ball dominant.

I think the unlikelihood of anyone else winning FMVP has more to do with the fact that we don't have anyone else that has the capability of doing so. And I say this knowing full well that Iguodala won on a team that had Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.

He's so underrated, bro. People don't even understand how good he is.

In those pics of Jimmy defending him, that look Khris got him wearing is priceless.

Bucks should run the offense through Midds in game 5 and make Giannis the #2 option with his back to the basket. Get Giannis a bunch of offensive rebound jams.

A true all-star can defeat two all-stars.

Middleton was quite good this series, but still probably not a true #2. Both things can be true. He'd be an amazing #3 or fine as 2a.

The last two games we saw the good and bad of relying on your offensive initiator who generally creates offense for himself by taking tough shots and not getting to the line. 50+ shots the last couple of games. Mostly really satisfied with the effort but it's a lot to ask of a guy.

Who's a true #2? Paul George? Westbrook? Siakam? All of these guys are struggling to the nth degree as "2s." Davis is the only one who's not and he's considered a top 10ish player. Hell, in Middleton absolutely carrying us in game 4? He accomplished more than those listed above.

Without better coaching and more variation in his game, I have more questions about Giannis as a true #1. He allowed himself to be completely removed from the game at times. That was more unacceptable than anything Khris did in this series.
