    NBA MVP voters DO NOT CONSIDER DEFENSE. But in my mind, Giannis or Embiid should have been MVP. You can't be MVP of the NBA and not only not be on an all-defensive team, but you were also outrebounded by a 6'3" guard! Congrats to Milwaukee.

    Giannis truly is the best Buck since 1971 Kareem, and it's not even remotely close.

    Ya hear that KD, LBJ, Harden, Kyrie? He did it the hard way. Stuck by his team in the good times & the bad, did it differently, & won. Mad props.

    The bar is so low. Tim Duncan did this (multiple MVPs with multiple rings on the team that drafted him) and guess what? He faced criticism from clowns.

  • Poetic Writer
    Poetic Writer

    The only champion Finals MVP to be critiqued for winning the right way and playing his position as a big scoring down low instead of hoisting up jump shots then gets criticism for doing so. Played defense unlike 90% of the NBA and they cry about Giannis just runs and jumps. For a near 7 footer if that's all he does why don't other near 7 footers do it? Not Joel nor Jokic can say they're champions. No super teams, no big market just "running and jumping" which is about 75% of what you have to do in basketball. 🤦🏾‍♂️

    There's so many great players to never win a ring, Giannis honestly wouldn't have to win another, he's already solidified in the history books with the rest of the champions!

    Middleton should've had the Finals MVP, not Giannis, they just gave it to him for Game 6 alone.

  • damnSENSEI

    There is no obligation to stay with the team that drafted you. The team has no loyalty to the teammates so I don’t get why there’s this notion that the players should be loyal to the team. With that being said when a player does choose to stay with one team the story is definitely much sweeter, especially when they win. Look at dirk with the mavs, Kobe with the Lakers, curry with the warriors and now giannis with the bucks. HOF status solidified 🏆

    • damnSENSEI

      @david oneil exactly. That’s an example of a good front office. But look at someone like lebron the first time he was in Cleveland.

    • david oneil
      david oneil

      It depends how the team treats you. They literally built a new stadium for giannis, gave him a supermax, signed his partner Kris to a max and got jrue . The team did good by the bucks and giannis did it good on the team

    Kris Middleton's shot making down the stretch and GA shot blocking AND YES HE MADE HIS FREE THROWS 17-19. Two WAY SUPERLATIVES OFFENSE AND DEFENSE. Creating his own super team . Ended the curse of the Jabbar trade by sticking and staying.

      @Doomthinkingman You know the Bucks had the smallest arena in the NBA at the time shy of 11,000.

    • Terence Winters
      Terence Winters

      @Doomthinkingman you will find racists anywhere if you look for them including L.A. KAJ just wanted a more Cosmopolitan environment and go back to his UCLA BUDS LIKE LUCIUS ALLEN and the potential for higher earnings in a bigger market. Cant blame him or bucks owner as he had trouble paying the likes of Bob Dandridge and Alex English until his cable business took off which took time . Wayne Embry didnt leave and he made the best deal he could BW JB DM and Elmore smith . Unfortunately . KAJ s arms an legs were greater than the sum of those parts. E.Smith retired, Dave Meyers too , marques johnson came along to make them respectable . Then Lanier , and a young developing sidney moncrief . By the time they restructured it was the Moses Malone erving , kAJ magic, bird mchale era . Then the 90s pistons, bulls , rockets HO, spurs. , lakers shaq, decade . Then 2000-2010 lakers spurs some more, 2010-20 Cleveland lbj miami , warriors steph kd klay dg 3 ball era. So yeah 50 years is a long wait for a city with only 3 non football champions that's sports crazed. Ie 57 braves, 71 bucks ,77 marquette, and now this. Great individuals came and went like Lanier sikma but the sky hook was unique and unrepeatable. Even so it took nearly 8 years for L.A. to gather the pieces to become an 80s dynasty. Think doomthinker about production not detraction. It's a blue collar town MILWAUKEE TOOLS AND BEER .

    • Doomthinkingman

      Well Milwaukee was hella racist back in the day (I can't personally speak on today's Mil). That's why Jabber left. If they got better then they deserve Giannis and this chip

      @Yin Yang Middleton had wade numbers and Jrue had bosh numbers??? Are you out of your mind , you didn't watch the gams did you??? Jrue was shooting 25% and airballing shots , Middleton had 11 points in a game and other games were also average , he had one 40 point game and that's it . They are both inconsistent , atleast Jrue was good on defense , but dont even compare this to the amount of help Lebron had. Wade was lalready a FMVP and Bosh was one of the best players in the league
