If he stays healthy (70+ games in RS + full playoffs) and is healthy enough to really work in the offseason too, I think by age 28-29 the only guys I may rule out him surpassing are peak Bron/MJ. His peak has already surpassed the likes of Kobe, KG, Dirk imo. Next step is the 6-10 all time guys.


It's just insane to think about it. Coming from a skinny ass mystery kid from the 2nd division of Greece with no english and barely any highlight clips, being a super raw rookie with only flashes of star potential to becoming potentially a top 5 player of all time.
Imagine saying this during his rookie year

Team Giannis existed at the time. :angel:

Brandon Knight & Jerryd Bayless weren't members but that's okay. Larry Drew may or may not have been an honorary member, seeing Magic Johnson's likeness.

Its not like Giannis never made these kind of shots before, his issue has slways been the confident when he misses 2-3 shots, which he will again everyone do.

Goal should not be to take more long 2s but increase his percantage probably.

Like someone else said maybe he wont increase it so much this year but next year and forward he could be deadly on 2s and 3s with his workethic

This season will be the first year where Giannis will undoubtedly be the best player in the league. All hail the new king.

Giannis is consistently in the 20-40 range of all-time greats at age 26. And the crazy thing is I got a feeling from last night he is about to take another leap. I think his floor all-time (assuming no catastrophic injury) is probably 20.
In my book, he is another ring and MVP from top 10 consideration (which is a big IF since even getting one is so rare).

Looks like the Giannis movie is gonna be called RISE. It's made by Disney+ so does that mean it will be only streamed or theater release?

Top 20 is a lock basically. He broke the all time PER record while winning DPOY, he had one of the greatest finals series ever and he's still improving.

To use boxscore aggregator stats he's already rocketed up to 18th all time in career PER which is super impressive given his slow career start. 32nd in WS/48 mainly because his rookie year basically counts as a zero in that stat so he's playing catchup.

He'll break his PER record again this season.

Crazy to think that 6 years from now he will still be younger than Durant is today.
That's 6 full seasons before anyone has any sort of thoughts about him declining or managing himself or anything like that.

His next contract will be an even bigger asset than his current one.

Maybe I'm overly optimistic but if we repeat Giannis will enter the goat conversation. It's incredible how much improved he looks compared to the Nets series.

If the Bucks repeat and Gianni is in the Top 3 again for MVP/DPOY, coupled with another Finals MVP. He absolutely enters Top 5 potential discussion.

Um, is he driving with no hands on the wheel with a baby in backseat? So he can dance to Harry Styles? Can't tell for sure, but I thought I saw movement in the baby seat.

I did see that but some phones aren't reversing negatives out of the box these days. It took me 3 weeks to realize my new Samsung had everything backwards last summer.

ETA: You can clearly see him turn the steering wheel.

ETA2: It occurs in selfie mode only, and he has to go to his settings to change it.
