Giannis could demand a trade tomorrow, trash Milwaukee the city, talk about how much he hates the Bucks org, and take a dump in the Milwaukee River on his way out and I'd still praise him until his dying day. Him giving an interview with a non-basketball magazine that implies he's thinking about other options beyond the one in front of him doesn't bother me one bit.

To me he just picked a bad way to phrase "who knows what the future holds". He's just a bit too unfiltered sometimes, most guys would've had the media sense to just say "we just won a title, i'm happy in Milwaukee" or something similar to that. You can't help but wish he kept those thoughts to himself in an interview with a major publication a month after we won the title. I choose to believe he didn't mean anything nefarious, he was just talking about his mindset to stay motivated. But at this point he has to know any comment like that is going to take off in the media and be a little smarter.

Saratsis I've never trusted at all. I'm sure he's a good agent but in my mind he is the one exerting the pressure to make the move to a bigger market. I, maybe naively, think a majority of this stuff is his doing. Just always subtly stirring the pot just a little bit whenever he gives a quote. I think if he had his way Giannis would've moved on, and it's 100% because of Giannis himself that he resigned here.

Also, never would've thought i'd see a Mirza Teletovic name drop in that article, even if it was just a throwaway fact about who previously owned his house. :lol:

Giannis #5 PF of all time on this list behind Duncan, Malone, Garnett, and Dirk. Seems about right. If he stays healthy I think he goes above all of them, minus Duncan and maybe Malone if you don’t care about championships. The list is also interesting with just how much it drops off after 5-7 spots, but that might just be bad writing by Hoopshype. Bosh should probably be on here, even if he does the C work too. Chris Webber, Shawn Kemp, Horace Grant, Cliff Robinson, and Shawn Marion are all missing.

I'm greek and I didn't know this was the way to eat your biscuits. I don't think Oreos specifically are very popular here. We have greek brands and they are mostly with chocolate flavor.

Tim Tam slam >>>>>>> all.

On behalf of Australia I offer my services in providing Giannis with 1:1 education on this important topic. Let's go Arnotts.

Yeah, it's definitely a balance. He got where he is today because he treated every drill with intensity. Problem is he does that he will wear himself out physically, mentally or both. (In addition, for him to enjoy life since he has definitely earned his cake)

Love how Giannis keeps joking around with reporters on Oreos and basketball cards etc..

Think of all the douchery from around the league being mega negative toward the reporters.

Yeah, that's something I've observed recently is that he's not going full speed (intensity). Which is good, he doesn't need to, he's still dominating games, and can turn it up like he did in the finals when it counts. In fact it's probably the same for Khris and Jrue

Every now and again he turns it on, like that Lakers game he was clearly keen to put a demonstration forth for Lebron and AD.

It's very clear we are cruising at the moment, and I truly struggle to comprehend this :lol:
