We will see how it plays out with the Lakers. I think your post overate AD. AD is very good but I will never replace Giannis for him. AD is huge and intelligent but lacks speed. His lack of speed will even be exposed more in his new team filled with tall huge slow players.
chic2pimp:
AD is Maddd talented with a huge bag of potential. However Let's be honest with ourselves that is where it all ends as I type today. His Stats so far are not translating into wins for His team.

"Place on Him on the Bucks in place of Giannis they win the Title.
Place Him on Rockets in place Harden, the Rockets would have had one Chip by now.
Place Him on the Nuggets in place of Jokic, they become wayyyyy better
Place Him on GSW, He'd have won 2 chips, 2 FMVPs and one MVP by now.
Place Him on the Raptors in place of Kawhi and they still would have won the title"



Maybe If He had actually buckled down and done some work, He'd have taken His former team to a higher seed in the Western conference. After all the "Less Talented" Jokic Led His injury ravaged team to a 2nd Seed.

Lol. In other words, Siakam is likely to improve to AD's level while AD is likely to stagnate for Siakam to catch up with him. Nice analysis bro.
You need Brighter Grammar

Anyway come and explain how Giannis caught up with AD. 3 years ago only a crazeman will mention Giannis and AD in the same breath. Did AD stagnate or why are they comparable now?

I don't need any memo just come and explain how Harden transformed from 6th man to perennial MVP candidate.

Every player has the capacity to improve if they apply themselves in an expanded role.

LeBron scores 13 points and a triple double, Kawhi scores 12 and a near triple double.

There's only one king.

Lol. If you think Giannis is better than AD, I suggest you wake up. The only reason his numbers have gone down slightly is because he's playing with LeBron. Giannis should be averaging 35 as the primary scorer on his team. Oh, I forgot, he doesn't have a mid range.

Put Giannis on the same team with LeBron and he'll average 15 points. Peace out bro.

Lol. You've already explained it na. You can't be MVP if you play from the bench.
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 7:35am On Nov 12, 2019
Kawhi was 2-11 tonight and had 9 turnovers. Is that your "best player in the league"?

And meanwhile, GS are still going down. It's like they're trying to find oil.

And Draymond Green. HOF my áss. The only thing that guy knows how to do is defend. They're getting exposes one by one.

He jumped from 15pts per game to 35 pts per game. That is what can happen when you're allowed to Captain your own ship.

Prior to him leaving OKC I'm sure naysayers like you would be among the people suggesting Harden will never be in discussion for best player in the league

Lool go and argue with LeESPN that ranked Giannis #1 in the league.

Even your Davis has never averaged more than 28pts per game so don't come and give us burnt dodo

Why should Giannis average 35pts as primary scorer? There are other players on the team and Giannis is his team's primary facilitator. When has AD ever led his team in all 5 statistical categories over an entire season?

Come and mention me when AD finishes top 20 in every statistical category over an entire season. Even your LeNomad has never done that

You just wrote bullocks to be honest with you. The picture below is their stats for last season. The blue represents AD while the green represents Giannis. I presume last season was Giannis' best season till date, while last season was probably AD's worst season since he became a superstar. Don't mention me again on this matter.

Who is the we? You're clearly dense because that's completely unrelated to the argument.

If he didn't leave OKC would he be an MVP caliber player?

You are a complete unrepentant clown!

AD's best season he averaged 28/11.8/2 on 50% shooting

Giannis's best season 27.7/12/5.9 on 58% shooting

So if you think they are not comparable you must be certifiably crazy

Giannis was top in his team in steals and blocks, but AD dwarfed him in those categories. The rebounds were virtually the same. So, leading your team in a category doesn't necessarily mean you're the best at doing that thing.

I thought we finished last season with the consensus that Giannis is a 1 dimensional player who needs to diversify his offense in order to lead the Bucks to the finals? I have not seen anything different this season to think otherwise.

Really, quick question, all through Anthony Davis 7 years with the Pelicans, where he made all star what was his PPG average
incase you don't know, he did not average as much points as Giannis in the last 2 years

Kawhi shot 2-11 and had 9 turnovers and the clippers still won. LeBron shot 5/15 plus 15 assists and 13 rebounds and lost. Can you not see how scary this clippers team is?

AD is still nursing a shoulder injury. Hopefully he can play against the suns and get some rest against Golden State.

You'll soon come to realize that when dealing with people on this thread all sense goes out the window in favor of personal feelings and bias. No point engaging some dumb arguments.
