    Clone him and we can cut Harden while retaining a decent chance at a chip.

    yeah I don't believe it. He shouldn't been posting this, no matter how his agent or the FO pushes.
    If anything he should keep silence and make those idiots sweat.

    I would like to know which GMs are plotting this right now? Because they won't have a job in 4 years when Giannis becomes a free agent. He's signed until 2021.

    If that's "The Process" you're selling as a GM to your owner and fans, then you deserve to be fired now.

    He has the potential to be really good, but I doubt he can reach the level of LeBron, mj or even kobe.

    How long until he's the best player in the league?

    As soon as he develops a somewhat reliable jumper.

    Giannis needs another playmaker / player that can beat his defender off the dribble. Someone in the mold of an Eric Gordon would propel the Bucks.

    I'm not quite ready to jump on the top 5 & MVP runaway train yet.

    Agreed. To me, he looks like Blake Griffin, when Griffin first came into the league. Neither has really learned to play basketball yet, and both early Blake and current Giannis seem to be coasting by on their natural talents and abilities.

    He showed flashes of greatness, earlier tonight, in euro-stepping Love and completely confusing Crowder.

    Like a lot of people said, Giannis can turn that corner if he develops a shot. What's scary is, Antetokoumpo hasn't hit the ceiling yet, on his current skillset.

    Top 5 MVP candidate this year, and will probably be a multiple time winner throughout his career.

    Giannis has to take the next step and add a steady 3 pt shot. Adds up a lot on the offensive side.

    Next step is actually a meaningful playoff performance.

    In my opinion, so far this year his defence has regressed since last year, but he has improved his consistensy, aggresiveness and his fadeaway midrangers.
    He's smh much stronger. He also seems much more sure and polished in his playmaking and post moves.

    Or maybe because the rest of the team sucks he has to waste too much effort in scoring and that's why he can't cover all the holes in D like last season.
    But his block numbers should regress if he carries on like that.

    Anyway, maybe not like a jump like the 4 previous offseason but still should have improvement from last year from what he has shown in this small sample.

    what do you mean meaningful? He already was the best player in a playoff series at age 22.

    Giannis is leading the league in scoring.

    He has made ONE three pointer so far this year.

    One.
