In the end, it will always be worth it to keep Giannis and win the championship..........but......
At what point do we worry about having an aging borderline all star point guard on a long-term max contract?

If we get kicked out of the playoffs.

As bad has Jrue has been, I would not trade him for Ben Simmons. (Saw an article on this trade idea). I would trade Hill for Ben Simmons. That's as much value as I would give for him.

I'm surprised Khris played 30 minutes in his first game back.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

Schedule is getting easier, we'll be top 3 or 4 by New Year's. Any news on Brook?

He was at the game wearing grey sweatpants and a grey T-shirt.

I feel like we could have done with some brighter news.

I read the article. It was in between a trade idea and a trade rumor, more like the latter actually.

Simmons for Jrue was the point of discussion.

Intrigued me. I would at least consider this seriously. He is a 3 time All Star.

Tempting because we could use a big. I just hope his current Bledsoe impression is limited to just this stretch of the regular season.

Uniforms are fantastic. Warmup shirts actually made that deer head look good.

We have the best regular unis in the NBA, but these special ones could legit be everyday unis.

Also, I love the cycling through the logos on the score box that ESPN does when coming back from breaks.

Sounds like it wasn't the plan but he told Bud he was fine.

Plus he was coming back from illness and not injury, so as long as he felt all right and looked all right seems fine to me.

emunney mentioned in the GT, but it’s hilarious how ordinary Giannis made AD look. AD is a pretty insane talent and Giannis made it feel like AD was a Paul Millsap level dude out there lol

Thanasis is twice the player Semi is. Which is quite a damn shame.

Semi has no place in the league. There’s just not enough skill/measurables there. I legitimately laughed when he posted up and tried the fade away. He took 9 shots and that’s on Bud for not pulling the plug.

Jrue has some Bledsoe in him where 1-2 times a game he does something so outrageously awful that you can’t believe it just happened. That being said, if there’s one guy who benefits the most from a full healthy squad it’s him.

Khris looked like I thought he would but hit big shots when it looked like LA might pry the momentum away.

Bobby!

Connaughton was the only bench guy who scored. That’s an issue. Hill only took one shot. That’s not going to be a recipe for long term success. He needs to take and make a few jumpers per game.

It’s crazy how even we as Bucks fans have become so accustomed to the generational talent that is Giannis. There’s no one in the nba outside of Steph who is more fun to watch when everything is going their way.

Trade for Mo Bamba already please.

He has a vague back issue which no bucks employee will give further information about.

You'd think his back injury was called Voldermort with the way they refuse to specify and speak about it.

I think the team this season has been on cruise control in addition to the injuries, playoff basketball is so completely from the postseason that I’m not going to worry about how the team looks in November.

Nah, he is a middling player on a bad team

somewhere in between this.

he hustles and brings energy. hes a more skilled and consistent thanasis.

I have a somewhat irrational dislike of THT, mainly because he’s lebron’s pet player
