          The Bucks losing ecf wasn't because of any individual player, it was because of coaching and the lack of adjustments.

                                    I am so sick of these weak lazy arguments from sports media. Just because Giannis lost now his weakness was exposed??? Every player in ever sport has strengths and weaknesses so that dumb, stupid and lazy to say. The bucks needs to surround him with better players.

                                      The question was insulting as it was a repeat question of the one literally right beforehand. He was just not in the mood for some space case reporter holding onto a question without listening to the rest of the people in the room. How did you guys not pick up on that?? She had her head in the sand and the MVP wasn't liking the poor quality effort by this reporter so he left. Good for him. She needs to be better bc this is offensive behavior without a doubt...

                                            That's the Norm these days for Players, especially after Losing the Biggest game of the Season. Bro, Losing is Shameful for Winners like Giannis and to get a Question, that Questions his Play Making Skills and Decisions, while he was in the Moment of the Game , is Worse than Losing the Game, for him; it's adding Pain, to the already Existing Pain of Losing the Game for this Young Bro.. It's Kinda like Taunting the Player if you have anything Negative to ask them after they just got knocked out of the Playoffs. So the NBA must take a Closer looked at the Questions being asked to Players, especially after they just Lost or the NBA can just Excuse the Losing Players, from the Interview Process if the Players make a Request to be Excused.

                                                Giannis disrespects the media & not good to see as MVP candidate doing like that.

                                                Milwaukee Bucks should have placed Giannis on the WING. 😀😀😀
                                                You are attacking 1 side = half of the defense.
                                                Starting off at Top of Key means you are attacking the heart of the defense.
                                                That's like 1 against 5

                                                Giannis will handle it better next time.
                                                ESPN got carried away earlier season, making Giannis GOD-LIKE !!!

                                                  Nick wrong strikes again. What?!?! Regular season basketball isn't like the playoffs. "Analysts" should know this. Haha

                                                    Giannis and Ben Simmons better get in the gym during the summer and go find themselves a reliable jump shot.

                                                      Cracaphat I think Giannis will be better unfortunately I don’t trust Simmons

                                                    Hot take - maybe Giannis just had to take a doodoo? 💩💩💩

                                                      Nick is by far the best NBA reporter. Giannis will come back next year with an adequate jump shot guaranteed.

                                                        Raptors gave Giannis the same treatment the Spurs gave Lebron in 2007

                                                        what Nicks doing with his hair is not consistent

                                                          So nick got the tupay looking like white Lebron

                                                            I only clicked on this bc Nick said the Bucks was gonna win the chip this year, and I believed him. I thought he was gonna come up here and address that

                                                              The problem with cats like Nick is they only see advanced stats and analytics. If he watched one game that Giannis he would have known he can’t shoot and he has no post game, but he is in love with Lebron and he shares the same issues. Nick was in love with Giannis because is efficient player. I real hoper saw this a mile away.
