    Is there pressure on Giannis after winning MVP?

      First Things First: Cris Carter and Nick Wright absofuckinglutely Giannis wont win a chip with the bucks that organization is good at scouting talent but they lack building championship rosters they traded Tobias Harris away as he was ascending, extended drew bledsoe without a 3pt shot and let brogdon walk. This offseason it just showed me how inept they are at building a roster capable of winning it all. Giannis should go to the raptors if he wants to win they showed they can build a winning roster around a great player.

      No pressure at all. There isn't any because Giannis already proven he is a superstar, a top 5 player and one of the best in the league right now, earned season MVP, was the main reason his Bucks team finished with the best record and top number one team in the league, led his team to the east finals and was a great defensive player. He simply dominated the game all throughout the 2018-19 NBA season as it was his year playing the best basketball of his career. The Greek Freak definitely needs to improve his offensive game with three point shooting and hitting free throw shots, but other than that, he's an established player with great game and more potential for the future. Thus, disagree with Chris on his 3 reasons and points about there being pressure applied on him for next season. Giannis will ensure they advance into the playoffs, most realistically the second or third round of the east. Hoping they'll be in the east finals again to play the Raptors! After becoming last years MVP, Giannis just decreased all pressure and lowered expectations even not helping his team get into the finals for winning a championship because of the competition increasing mainly in the west with both the Lakers and Clippers as well as in the east with the Nets. Therefore, he should just focus on developing his game overall in all areas. The pressure doesn't exist period.

    That’s the coach fault. You send him to the low block and have me post and shoot over Kawhi. Put the pressure on the double team.

    Giannis wasn't double teamed?... did he fall asleep after the player intros?

    It wasn't just kawhi guarding him. It was the whole team. Not giannis fan but these ppl need to stop saying it was only kawhi that stopped him. And this coming from someone who likes kawhi.

  • Andres Conde
    Andres Conde Month ago

    Giannis doesn't have a second all star player on his team. Who is better Middleton or lowry? becouse Kawhi just won a ring with Lowry as the second best player on his team

    • Destiny 100
      Destiny 100 26 days ago

      Well I would say Kyle Lowry and also it was the whole team. Siakam Fred Norman but reality was once raptors stopped giannis bucks didn't show up. On the last 4 games. Maybe they were nervous who knows. They are certainly talented.

    Chris, I don't know what game you were watching, but they doubled and triple teamed Yanus which exposed his lack of a jump shot. He didn't know how to shoot or pass out of the double and triple team

    He didn’t have a jumpshot (shot 33% from 3 in playoffs) that’s amazing for a PF

    Bucks w Giannis are starting to remind me of Bron in Cleveland... they overpaid Middleton and traded Brogdon when they didn’t need to. Don’t be surprised if he takes off

    Im from Milwaukee i watched every game... Wat game did the Raptors not play team defense & double team Giannis??

  • Average_or_ Tryhard

    I have faith in Giannis to come back with a passable mid range shot, maybe a slight 3pt shot. His work ethic is out of this world
    Ben Simmons, take notes.

    Yo they signed his brother dawg! They not trading him and he don’t wanna leave at least till his contract is up.( I still think he gon stay if he has a good surrounding cast)

    They walled the paint off and he can’t shoot wtf u mean is mono-mono cris Carter saying anything along with the fact raptors have perfectly ideal personnel kawhi,serge,siakam and gasol in the paint cmon now

    Giannis needs either more help on his squad or get out of the bucks...... go to the warriors and fill the void and go crazy on the floor with Curry

  • Romy Sharma

    Chris Broussard has become a joke, especially since his flop of "reporting" on Kawhi this offseason.

  • Jimmy W.
    Jimmy W. Month ago

    Realistically he's probably 90% of what he could be, and it's mostly in his shot where he can drastically improve. There is also no excuse for a guy with his skillset to not average a triple-double, or barely short of that. Can't complain about 28/13/6 though.

  • HopelessMunz
    HopelessMunz Month ago

    Kawhi did what he was supposed to do. Giannis gotta endure some hardship before he rises. Probably gonna come up short again this year. But that’s what it takes.
    That’s what everyone underestimated about the Raptors (even though Kawhi got them to the show) - everyone on that Raps team had gone through the heartbreak and endured the “underachievement” etc. 9/10 times, that is what produces a champion. The failure and shortcomings that preceded it.

  • Junaid Desai
    Junaid Desai Month ago +2

    Kawhi shut nothing down, that was a team effort. Kawhi was absolutely better than others as an on ball defender, but if they let Giannis go straight up one on one, Giannis would dunk it down Kawhis throat.
    I still believe that Kawhi is the best perimeter defender ever, but the NBA is such that great offense beats great defense.
    Giannis was "exposed" because of his lack of a shot, not by a player.
    2 things are happening with basketball media. 1. The rest of the Toronto team are getting zero credit for their supporting role to Kawhi. 2. They forget that Toronto was an ECF level team for years (top 5 most years).
    Kawhi didn't drag some sorry team to a title. They were literally missing an MVP player PLUS needed GSW to pitch up hobbled

    "This dude say it was Mano e Mano uhh no it wasn't even Kawhi said it was a team effort Kawhi guarded him but their were 3 defenders building a wall behind Kawhi to help stop him"

  • se7en Zee
    se7en Zee Month ago

    Giannis just needs to go to shoot the jump hook and improves his FT. Then Kawhi won't be able to guard him. On defense, go guard Kawhi so won't have to double team.
    Don't shoot the 3's because 1) his 3-point % isn't as good as his teammates. 2) go into the paint where you have the advantage. that will put pressure on the opponent.

  • Dave Bass
    Dave Bass Month ago

    Giannis will improve his mid game, but he also needs to develop some post moves. If he can force teams to double him near the basket that will open up shots for Middleton and other shooters.

  • SouthernLocks
    SouthernLocks Month ago

    Yo Chris please go back and check the tapes..Giannis got dunks on Kawhi in single coverage..Ibaka, Gasol and Spice P were in help at all times. Giannis just got selfish and tried to play hero AAU ball instead of swingin it. Also Bron had his best finals numbers on Kawhi..Wade wasn't 100% in that series but Bron was like 50%+ from 3, 28, and 8

    Giannis doesn’t have the second star, but he has several extremely good role players, and players that fit perfectly into the Budenholzer Bucks system

    If Giannis had moves around the basket like Siakim he would be close to unstoppable even without a "jump shot "

    Ryan Muck Month ago

    I disagree with some of the takes here and I think Giannis is a bit better than they give him credit for. The Bucks probably aren't even a playoff team without him. Kawhi is amazing but the raptors have been making the playoffs for a few years now. They just needed a few more pieces to put it together.

    Cris Carter's takes on Basketball are totally inaccurate. To say Giannis can't become a great shooter is stupid. Plenty players make drastic improvements in shooting. LeBron, Ray Allen, D. Rose, Jordan. All originally known for their athleticism all became capable shooters

    So I keep hearing Giannis got exposed in the ECF but Giannis was droppin 23-15-6 on 47%fg WHILE GETTING QUADRUPLE TEAMED, NOT KAWHI.

    • Wonderlandian

      And also, people acting like the Bucks got swept.

      They were up 2-0 on the Ratpros and in game 3 they went to double OT and had they won that game the series was over and they would be playing for the championship.

      They lost game 3 and the inexperience caught up on them and they chocked the next 4 games (3 of those 4 games Milwaukee build double digit leads btw and chocked in the 4th)

    Yeah Cris carter didn't watch the series, and if he did, hes senile...

      Eric Evans he deserves credit and he is a good player. But when your the bucks. You have to go all out if you draft somebody as great as Giannis coz guys like that will never come in free agency on their own

    Did CC even watch the Bucks-Raps series??? Should give Giannis a bit more credit. Raps stopped him by building the wall to prevent him getting into the paint. KL was the key main defender and definitely held him in the matchup and deserves a lot of credit, but the wall and good rotations onto shooters was key. Bucks lacked enough secondary firepower to help Giannis and take advantage open looks off the wall and defensive rotations.
