All KD's rings definitely are behind Giannis' that much is not controversial. KD joining 3 hall of famers in their primes/late primes after a 73 win season. Yeah sorry, that will permanently look like a weak, weak move.
LeBron taking down a 73-10 team after being down 1-3, that still reigns as the best title since Dirk.
This is controversial. Giannis had a cake walk to the championship. The Suns are one of the worst Finals teams in the history of the NBA. Trae Young got injured in the ECF. The Nets were down 2 stars in the Semi-finals. And the Heat were the Heat. You can say KD's championships are easy, but I don't understand the hypocrisy of taking context into account for KD but not Giannis. Is there any argument you can make against KD other than just being a KD hater? Why not just be objective? KD would have won a championship in OKC if his main competition all had to deal with massive injuries.
This ultimately is the main goal of Giannis stans in this thread. To argue against context being taken into account with Giannis but to demand that context be taken into account with KD and LBJ. Not only is it intellectually dishonest, it's also embarassing. When talking about legacy, take your personal feelings out of it and be objective. What is the justification for using context to discount KD's championship and then ignoring context with regards to Giannis' championship?
Remember that he hyperextended his knee 3 weeks ago in really ugly fashion before putting in this finals gem. Play on a hyperextended knee much less carry an NBA team on it in an NBA finals, that doesn't sound like a cakewalk.
