    He will probably win regular season MVP. But during ECF he was exposed. I still think he will have a HoF career but will never live up to the hype.

    In the end Antetokounmpo will end up in the Dwight Howard tier of HoFers and far from GoAT status.

    Dude is like 24 and this was really his first season as a great player on a great team. This was his First deep playoff run. His career can go in a million directions.

    I agree he got "exposed". But he has a championship heart and work ethic. He will improve and be the league's best player. The unfortunate thing is"they" crowned him too early

    Can't wait to see Giannis grow.

    I wish more people could appreciate greatness or the process to become great. Don't set yourself up to hate the guy.

    It’s his first significant playoff series in his career.

    He didn't get exposed.. He was defended by one of the best defenders/players of our generation.
    Tbh, Kawhi would've showed up the entire Rockets team had we made the finals

    I looked forward in time and saw a million different futures.

    Out of a million different timelines, the majority of them he ends up as a slightly better Dwight Howard.

    LMFAO no Leonard would not have showed up our entire team. The Raptors are lucky they are in the Eastern Conference.

    Giannis never should have won the MVP and he and his coach Bud were out played and coached when it mattered.

    Giannis didn’t come close to carrying the Bucks against the Raptors.

    i don't think he's MVP that's why he's overrated.
    if you still want name, James Harden did that and did better.

    Harden wasn't an unknown prospect buddy... But even still, he's far from overrated.. He's a physical freak that just needs to be more cerebral during stretches..
