    I was hoping for a CP3 redemption arc.
    Glad Giannis won!

    “It just made sense,” Tucker explained about his choice to push for a move to Milwaukee. “It was perfect. We knew it was perfect from the beginning. To say I saw this (coming) is kind of an understatement, because this is what we talked about even while I was in Houston getting ready to leave, me and my team, just knowing that this was the landing spot and that I came here, we would be a chance to be where we are right now.”

    crazy to think if giannis doesn't sprain kyrie's ankle then the bucks are just a laughingstock for another offseason. now with the most injury luck of all time, they are the champs.

    Sad CP3 didn't get a title but still happy Bucks won. Booker really disappointed me in game 6. I thought he had good handles but he definitely needs to work on it in the off-season to get his shots off.

    The Freak and Middleton were great, of course; but it was Holiday, on both ends, outplaying the Suns' superstar back-court, sealed that deal.

    lolol where are the analytics purists and midrange deniers now that midrange has dominated almost every series and was key throughout the games and especially in the clutch

    and dont tell me only the greatest shooters should shoot midrange when even yanis has won the key games with his midrange

    Giannis shot 2.7 mid range shots per game in these playoffs and shot 33.3% on those shots.

    Giannis took less than 1 mid range shot per game in these playoffs in 4th quarters. Again because it’s not a good go to shot for him. Cause he’s bad at it.

    It was not a good shot for him.

    Khris Middleton….one of the better midrange shooters in the NBA…. Was the guy who was taking the majority of their midrange shots. Like he should have, because he was pretty good at them. Hitting about 45% of them.

    lolololol even in defeat you keep coming with the percentages lolololol...

    yanis hit them when it mattered in games 5 and 6
    and even when he was missing them he kept defenses honest, he kept them guessing and on their heels

    and it wasnt only middleton.... its was jrue also and tons of various guys on various teams suns atlanta and bucks

    ps and now its ok to shoot midrange if you can hit 45%?!

    What happened with 'its better to shoot 33% on 3s than 45% on midrange' reasoning?.....

    I really made this comment more not to knock on Harden, but just because I got tired of seeing the health issue come up over and over again. I know I discussed it as well, but at some point, it just got to a point where the horse was beaten to a bloody pulp, but here was the damn discussion last night after the Bucks won lol.

    In games 5&6 combined Giannis went 1-5 on midrange shots.

    Any more brain busters?
