    I want someone to have my back the way Cuttino has Giannis, lol. He is out their defending Giannis like he is his son...getting visibly upset when everyone else disagrees.

      Wow. An ascending superstar got stopped by a top 3 player in the league.

      Like wow. Who’d a thunk this is how superstars are

        8 seconds on the clock Milwaukee down 3 and they get the rebound and call timeout. There is one player on the bucks you are absolutely CERTAIN is not going to be putting up the 3 for the tie. THIS IS YOUR MVP?

            The only explosion and problem i saw to this series vs. Raptors?is how lonely Giannis is,no consistency from he's teammates at all,you can't win advanced play off games like that,you need at least one more star to help you out and Bucks?don't have that,not yet.

              These are the facts media world: without Giannis the Bucks would've not even made the playoffs - rather than the ECF. The young dude will be back with a vengeance next season.

                  Contino and Perkins making the most sense on this one. The coach messed them up. He should have played Giannis as a center. Tell me how Kawhi will guard a Center.

                      Sounds like EXPOSED TO ME.. but Greek Freak still young he got time to improve Vince back and come harder maybe it was good for him to get EXPOSED AND LOSE so he can prefect his game and become a better player

                        What is Cuttino talking about lol If Giannis was 6"4 he would be trash on offense with no jump shot & no handle.

                          How are you more disappointed in Giannis when you never believed in him in the First place?... 22/16 is not bad.. Kahwi just went HAM in the clutch.. and the bucks didn't have a shooter that could stop the bleeding... Raptors won these games from 3... Vanvleet 14/17 in the last 3 games

                            Can’t be giannis’s fault!? Don’t you understand their offense IS giannis. He wants to be the centerpiece? Fine, he takes the glory from wins AND the blame from losses. Goes both ways boys.

                              people he is only 24 smh.... he still has lot to improve and gain experience like kendrick said. he is still growing and any goats have done that before the got there.

                                After the first two games of the Bucks vs Raptors series they were all anointing Giannis as the next big thing in the league. The heir apparent to Lebron, my how fickle these talking heads can be.

                                  No such thing as a playoff superstar. Just a superstar or not. You don’t need the playoffs to be a superstar. Iverson, Barkley, Malone, and others were superstars without great playoff success.

                                    Kawhi success is good for basketball, it will encourage young players to learn to use their feet on defend. There are too many instant in the NBA where players take lazy fouls by reaching for the ball instead of moving their feet. I agree with the notion that the coach was just a babysitter for Giannis!

                                            Ill tell you what I don't like about Giannis. In the series with the raptors he was unnecessarily hitting Kawhi hard after almost every shot he was a part of defending. I think he has a dirty streak in his game when he gets beaten clean. I saw a couple of plays where it was surprising Kawhi didn't go down injured from Giannis.

                                                Look at the growth in Kawhi’s game, today he’s sick off the bounce, either going to his right or left hand, to the rack or pulling up midrange. Giannis not only has to learn how to shoot the midrange jumper and the three-pointer, he also has to get better off the bounce. But his biggest most glaring weakness, in my opinion, is his footwork and balance. May sound crazy but this offseason, I’d have Giannis work with an elite soccer coach on some basic skills, teach him to dribble and shoot the ball with both his right and left foot. Giannis’ poor footwork is why he looks so awkward on all those jump-stops in the lane and at the elbow. After he improves his footwork, then I’d add ball-handling and shooting drills. On the real, Bucks should bring in some of the top street ballers to help him with his handle, add some creativity to his game. His moves are far too basic, far too predictable.

                                                  The Greek Freak is too soft. He doesn't have a go for your jugular vein mentality. One game I watched I did not even notice him on the court. Seriously.

                                                                    Milwaukee lost because there was no off ball movement to distract the defense and prevent Giannis from getting triple teamed. Giannis also consistently took one step/dribble too many before giving the ball up when double teams were coming that gave the defense enough time to get back to shooters. I was really disappointed with Giannis. This was a series were he should have averaged 10-15 points and 10+ assists. It looked like we was worried more about scoring than playing good basketball.

                                                                    • Andre Browne

It's the media fault for wanting to anoint someone as the greatest player in the world while over looking people who have been in the league producing at high clips consistently like KD and Kawhi. Media clowns.

Someone needs to teach him how to post up like Kevin Garnett, Olajuwon, and Kevin McHale. He's got frames and long arms like them and a whole lot more jumping ability.

                                                                                        • danny blackhorse

                                                                                          • DES JAMES
