Wild if Demarcus Cousins just becomes the next version of Greg Monroe, bouncing around from team to team on the minimum. Injury will probably cost him $100 million over the course of his career.

Giannis’ personality is closer to Kobe/Westbrook on the court, and that may turn other coddled superstars off.

OT: Kawhi going to the clippers just really puts the nail in the coffin of just how f*cking stupid it was to let Brogdon go. Cheap f*ck billionaires can suck my balls.

Bringing a second star in Milwaukee would easier if GIannis was chatting for example with Butler and asked him to play together.

The league has changed . The players run the trades and the free agency now.

If Bucks manage to win a chip it would be next year . From 2021 the East will be locked by a healthy KD - Kyrie / Embid and an improved Simmons.


Those are 3 HUGE assumptions that are as far from locks as you can get

I honestly was going to suggest signing him to a deal if we lost Brook. I know he cant defend in space anymore so alot of teams cant work him into their system, but the Bucks can. They already play Lopez who also cant defend in space either. He could revitalize his career here like Lopez has.

It would be an easy transition as long as Cousins bought into the fact he's no longer a star, but it may take another year of humbling to reach that point. Maybe someone to look at next season if Robin/Ersan both leave, could give him a prove-it minimum similar to what the Warriors gave him.

For me Its 100% John Worst's fault. His management has been destructive.
Bucks would have won a chip with any other GM by now.

Obviously just precautionary but yeah, with how much weight he carries and the way he throws his body around, this was always gonna be the worry with him.

Plus you're assuming Gianni's ceiling won't be above those players. 2021 will be better than an improvement vin the upcoming season.

Kawhi is a silent assassin. He literally stole LA away from Bron and the Brow without a word of his plans leaking publicly.

I don't think Giannis is too timid to recruit. He's just starting to get the sense of what it takes to win a title. If he doesn't think this current core can do it, he'll try to make it happen either here or elsewhere.

Nobody had any clue at all he had it in him! Even KD and George were both taken by surprise that he reached out to recruit. It's legit amazing.

Other teams deal 5 future first rounders to go all and win...we jettison one of our best guys to stay out of the tax.

Has it been brought up that KL had no intention of ever going back to Toronto but gave the appearance he might so the Clips would up the ante to get George? That would be some serious Machiavellian **** right there.

Atlanta with Westbrook would be an interesting team. I assume they'd have to be willing to part with Trae Young in order to make it work on the court.

Dame's being interviewed on whatever tf "The Jump" is on ESPN, and I just come away thinking about how much I like him. He seems so real. He isn't about the life of getting into some super team, and I believe him. He certainly didn't have to stay in PDX.

Just wish he would have jumped ship anyways and come here somehow :)
