    Giannis, KD joined the best team in the league and often wasn't the best player on the team. Giannis did EVERYTHING to make the Bucks win.

    I hope GIANNIS will not go to the other team just to win another championship... Stay in Bucks for the rest of your career. You've proven already that your a real champ!

    👉👉 When a player has to go build a team in a microwave to win a ring or earn one on the stove its no comparison, its like home cook to bull shyt.. Imagine if MJ or Kobe ran off to different teams and getting rid of all the risky players and pick up stars in their place, getting coaches fired to pick up coaches that let the player coach the team.. They wouldve won 10 a piece lol

  • Maurice

    Tell me right now that if both of them retired Giannis would go down much greater than KD and he just finished his prime

    • Zack Rodriguez
      Zack Rodriguez

      @Maurice so his performance in the Olympics is what we’re using to rank him all time? Dirk only had 1 MVP, not 2, and if you want to argue finals appearances, then KD still has more that dirk with 4. I do agree that Dirks championship run was more impressive than both of KDs, but that doesn’t make mean that 1 ring is more valuable than 2. And the gap defensively between Giannis and Durant is not as large as you may think. KD, especially when he was with the warriors, developed a lot defensively and is now one of the best defenders at his position

    • Maurice

      @Zack Rodriguez in talent but not greater than. I'm not hating im just stating facts. I dont care about warriors nor KD you just looking at talent. Dirk had 2 MVPs amd 2 finals apperance where he won in a huge upset being down in the series to LeBron big 3. You have to major credit to someone who does that. Was KD not supposed to win title they just won 73 games not to mention he had them down 2 to 1. That was sissy move and he cant get full credit. I will say it again right now he neck and neck with Dirk he can pass him though. If him and giannis retired today giannis goes down as greater than him. Was about the whole defense aspect of it. Kd knows thats why he has burner accounts and argues with people like me and you. He is probably the most talented in the NbA 7 foot and due what he can but he not the best you seeing that in the Olympics

    • Zack Rodriguez
      Zack Rodriguez

      @Maurice dirk > KD???? Yeah you just hating bruh, either that or you’re still mad about him going to the warriors. KD shits on Dirk. I’ll take 1 MVP, 4 scoring titles, 11x all star, 9x all nba, and 2 rings to be honest, I’m not saying giannis won’t be better when it’s all said and done, but right now KD is head and shoulders over giannis.

    • Maurice

      @Zack Rodriguez you crazy. Think about KD got 1 MVP and got a ring the all time sucker way. Giannis got 2 MVPs and a ring the hard way. MVPs carry weight. O yea and defensive player of the year which Jordan and hakeem the only ones. Yea kd more skilled but not greater at this point. This the scary part giannis 26. Kd not over Dirk yet

    Would you rather have KD's 2 rings where he was recruited by a championship team or LeBron's 4 where he pouted his way into having at least a second superstar. Let's not forget 1 of the teams in Miami had Ray Allen as well. So you had LeBron, Wade, Bosh and Allen. Giannis ring is the most significant win since the GSW won their first ring. Teams that were built not recruited by a diva Superstar.

    I mean rings are rings, so if your asking me if I'd rather have one or two then I'm choosing two no doubt. But if your asking me if one means more than the other I'm gunna say no, not in this case...some will say KD's rings are tainted because it was an ultra superteam but some will also say Giannis' ring is tainted by crazy amount of injuries and he got all time lucky.

    What you can argue with boston is, all 3 of those guys were pretty much exiting their prime as to lebron and Co in their prime

  • Clint Coleman
    Clint Coleman

    Forget all that, and everybody's take. Kevin Durant himself has proven to me that a Giannis type ring is best. He won 2 rings, and was unhappy. If he was secure and happy, he wouldnt have gotten into a twitter beef with a child amongst all the people who hated on him. Plus he left because he knew Warriors would be "STEPH's" team, no matter how many rings they won. Durant himself knows a Thunder ring would be sweeter than 5 Warrior rings.

      @Anthony Jones you mean it started with the big 3 the celtics did. This video is purely about KD and you can't even call both the same thing due to different scenarios and context behind it. I'm not a lebron fan but I atleast look at the facts. KD literally had a contending team/had golden state by the throat 3-1 literally could've ended the warriors and won a chip. Instead..he choked it and decided to go to the team who beat him, that's like MJ going to the Pistons after they beat him in the playoffs the prior season. Lebron (who had no type of help around him thanks to Cleveland's owner during his first stint) got fed up with the lack of building around him so he decided to go team up and help Dwade. Rather than joining the celtics Maybe if you get over your lebron derangement syndrome, this can actually go better.

    Giannis earned his ring and KD ring chased for his rings (everyone knows that) like I feel it’s more about the hard work, effort, and determination you give during the regular season, post season, and finals that give your rings a value. KD will NEVER experience that
