Anyone dismissing the Clippers completely is being foolish.

It is a good match up, but Lakers-Bucks also has the LeBron-Giannis narrative. I believe the second to be more prime time: the two all star captains, the King vs the upcoming Prince etc

I don’t like the matchup for the Bucks, I think they are better vs the Clippers. With the Lakers to me I think Giannis has too much respect for Lebron, it’s like his big brother - you saw it in the last game they played. You want Giannis going for blood and playing bully ball, he doesn’t really do that vs Lebron.

Don’t worry Giannis will be out for blood no matter who it is. And that last gm against the Lakers was in LA we won the first gm in Milwaukee and Giannis dominated. The clippers we beat both times we played them, both series will be great who ever we play. In the East the raptors Celtics 76ers Heat are just as good as the teams in the west except the LA teams.

I don't know what you were watching if you don't think Giannis was "going for blood" in that last game. He was the only one who showed up for us.



Huge big brother, way too much respect, when he had 34, 11, and 7, canned 5 threes, and walked off the floor putting the crown on his head after taking a 14 point lead in the 4th with 9 and change to go.

Too much respect for Lebron because it's like his big brother? That's nonsense.

Milwaukee was missing three key rotation players including their All-NBA Defense point guard. Middleton had a dogsh*t night. But okay.

So you think the the #1 teams in the east and the west will meet in the finals? wow what a fresh and radical prediction. it's really meaningful that you say that. shows a lot of insight and analysis went into your post. congrats. the fact that you said such an obvious thing with so much attitude took real guts. really impressive stuff.

also, you're wrong.

Even further evidence that the game was meaningless in the grand scheme

As I've said since before the season, health will be the difference maker.

With LeBron/AD and PG13/Kawhi, if one of those guys misses a game it changes everything, and they are all slightly injury prone.

Health determined last year's winner and it will play a huge factor again.

Assuming perfect health to both squads, I'd give the slight edge to the Lakers but it's close.

Lakers going to get bounced in 1st round. They have no one outside their top 2. This is the worst assembled roster in recent memory for trying to contend for ring

Lakers want the Bucks because they won't be beating the Raps. Lock.
