Giannis is being used differently this year than the last 3 seasons.
He is adjusting to their new offense. I think heíll be fine.. he wonít be lebron though...

Giannis kind of a one trick pony to me. Get lots of run way and spin wildly through the lane.

I definitely fear KD though.

Must suck when you plateau as a top 2 player in the world. I am also assuming that he has plateaued, not peaked, meaning he will be this good for a while before his game declines.

He is still over a year younger than when LeBron and MJ won their first titles. He still has the potential to get his shot figured out and get even better.

His numbers this year are off but it's only been 15-16% season so far. There is still a lot of season to go for him to be his MVP self again and see those numbers get better.

Iíd trade Smart, Nesmith, Timelord, Langford and picks for him. All those guys havenít plateaued and are projected to get better. Iíll take a peaked out, predictable MVP and DPOY  :laugh:

I've never feared Giannis because he just seems like a 1 trick pony.  Drive to the basket, run over anyone in his way and get to the line.  If he actually takes a jump shot, I'm happy.  leBUM used to be like this too until he started hitting some outside shots consistently.  I do not expect Giannis to ever become a good shooter.

You really don't need a guy with a "sacred" peak (like top 15-20 of all time) to win NBA titles - MVP calibre players give awesome lift to teams even if they aren't the best of the best. A guy like Giannis is still a great piece to build around, the Bucks will be title contenders for the years to come as long as they manage to surround Giannis with adequate supporting pieces.
