Not necessarily needed, just wasn't confident enough in my Bogdan prediction, and self conscience about people knowing my real name isn't actually RiotPunch. :) Also, the Yannis bit at the top is a bit confusing without context. I was speaking with Alex a couple of years ago about trying to get Giannis together with fellow Greek Yannis Philippakis of the band Foals for a radio promo. He had been nice and responsive with me, so I decided to give him a shout since that comment was freaking people out.

I thought the Woj Giannis Draft podcast was a fun listen but man I would have loved to hear more about the Bucks process in drafting him than an hour of sucking off Atlanta because they almost did.

Listening to the new Windhorst/Lowe podcast, Windhorst is saying he believes the Bucks know that Giannis is signing. He says they believe Jrue will be signing an extension as well. And he adds that Bogdan Bogdanovic and Giannis have been talking about teaming up and says that Giannis wouldn't let Bogdanovic sign here if he didn't intend to stay.

Also added that he believed Bogdanovic's salary will be about $15 million, maybe less.

More or less what we've been thinking in the aftermath of all this, but good to hear Windhorst saying it rather than just us.

Digging up and trolling every single Raptors thread involving Giannis' free agency is 100% allowed.

Hammond was either playing coy on that stuff or was the luckiest GM in history. He basically said the Bucks drafted Giannis with no interview or medical report. I find that hard to believe, but I guess it is better to be lucky than good.

Atlanta on the other hand wants to be applauded for how much they liked Giannis, but couldn't find a way to move up 2 spots to make that happen. Give me a break. Ferry wimped out there and he knows it.

We certainly get to puff our chest out a little. I really want to dunk on all the Golden State stuff that has been written, but I'm probably too lazy.

NBCSN Warriors on Twitter is going to get a laundry list of tweets from me the day he signs.
