    He owns Harden.

    Congrats to 2-time MVP and now Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. This is how you get it done.

    Giannis didn’t quit on his team so props to him for winning.

    I was a Harden fan BUT 50 pts in a closeout game?? Giannas is the best in the world right now!

    Giannis is a bitch who lucked out facing shitty competition.

    Amazing how many people can't understand circumstance.

    Circumstances? I care about facts

    Giannis: 50 points in an close out Finals game, 2x MVP, 1x Finals MVP, Elite two way player
    Harden: Known for choking, quit on his team

    Both of these teams somehow don’t impress me. Really hope Mobley is better than Ayton, because Ayton is doo-doo.

    Bucks smallball with Giannis at 5 murdered the Suns.

    Giannis 26 years old
    Harden 31 years old

    Buh bye Jimmy.


    The Bucks should be repeat favourites now, their squad is outstanding, they just had question marks over Giannis performances in the playoffs - but those seem to be behind them now!

    Never thought I'd give props to Giannis but this postseason he brought it. He played with heart and lead his team to a championship. He stayed in a small market, showing loyalty and didn't make excuses. He just cemented his legacy as one of the greats. Happy for Giannis, Middleton and Tuck.

    He really turned it on, can't hate on that. Harden doesn't even come close in the playoffs sorry

    50 points in a closeout game. That is pretty impressive.

    The amount of hate for a player who straight up carried this franchise for the better part of a decade, and was basically the only reason we sniffed the playoffs EVERY SINGLE YEAR he was here, makes me embarrassed to have to admit to originate from the same vicinity as you.

    Middleton really stepped up too. Holiday/Middleton/Giannis is long and strong core.

    I think a healthy Clipper team would have matched up pretty well against the Bucks.

    This is why we need to draft Mobley, all these playoffs shows you is guards cannot dominate when the refs swallow their whistles whereas bigs can still get theirs.

    I have no doubt Green will be an all-star but Mobley helps us more in the playoffs if he can reach the same level.

    If harden had foster on his side he’s a multiple time champ, so relax
