Giannis with a reliable 3 point shot should be banned. Total cheat code.

His shooting stroke looks light years better already this season. Quicker release and better mechanics.

It's great to have a guy that just continues to work so hard to improve his game, even after two MVP's.

Man, the Bucks are an announcer's nightmare.

Two Antetokounmpos, a Kalaitzakis, and a Mamukelashvili.

Thoughts on Mo Bamba 11.5ppg 7rpg 3.75bpg 20mpg. The 3.75 blocks in only 20 mins is what I am excited about finally. If he can stay out of foul trouble I could see him potentially averaging 4+ blocks a game.

Fine vs. the lower 20 of the league, not someone you want vs the top 10 of the league. Full on, BS, snap judgement, General Board style.

Claxton is a terror on defense. No reason not to start him and let the offensive LA come off the bench to lead that unit.

Great half by Pokusevski, he should have had 4,5 assists as well. OKC should build around him and Giddey trade SGA and Bazley for more draft picks :lol:

Yeah.... Giddey is mad nice. A better shooting 6”8” Rubio is a gun. ROTY pick for me, Lamelo but different all over again

Maxey is low key a great player. He could start elsewhere if he wanted.

Calm down LOL. SGA isn’t trying all that hard first two games but this is clearly his team.

The fact DeAndre Jordan has started in multiple games next to AD already makes me feel bad for Lakers fans. Why is Jordan playing at all. AD and Dwight should play the 5.

That's the Anthony Randolph vibes. All that skill in a tall body but not sure if he can put it together consistently every night.
