    crazy stupid...not even gonna bother with that video

    Giannis is not re-signing here, nor will he be able to do a Kawhi and at least win us a title before he dips

    if Harden is traded, it needs to be for a young star under contract and multiple picks...not Giannis who is about to be a free agent and would leave...

    I think Harden is better than Giannis but come on. That would be so stupid for the Bucks. Giannis is like 25.

    Giannis is a Taller Westbrook.

    Having 2 Westbrooks is a Disaster.

    With all the bricks they are going to shoot it is going to be a disaster.

    You'd have 2 really inconsistent 3pt shooters in your team.... well, 3 if you want to include Gordon's shooting for the past 15 months or so. Heck, even Covington isn't the most consistent shooter out there. Tucker can only shoot corner shots.

    You mean stupid for Rockets. How can Westbrook and Giannis play together. Teams just gonna stand in paint wait for bricks.

    The only player you trade Harden for is Beal

    Dude Giannis is 25. He'd outlast Westbrook and a franchise can build around him.

    Not our franchise. He would walk before we even get a chance. We have no picks and no young players of values. Harden is our only trade piece and he gets traded for Giannis. What is your plan to build around him?

    I'd do it even without the extension. The chance to rebuild around a 25 year old Giannis sounds amazing.

    Too bad Giannis sucks. He got a badass team... and got humiliated in the playoffs. If he can’t win with that supporting cast and coach, why would you think he gonna win here?

    First Take is peak casual content. It's catered to the worst of the NBA fandom. Don't waste your time with this garbage.
