    These guys are so weird and funny. Acting like Giannis doesn't exist or didn't just win a Championship and fmvp in a historic fashion a couple of days ago lol. Talking about LeBron and KD as the best players in the world 😆, y'all super weird and funny. I love to burst your out of touch bubble, the Greek Freak Giannis Antetokounmpo is currently the best player in the NBA. Plus stop saying the best player in the world plzz bc these US top notch basketball players ain't currently playing better than most of the foreign players in the Olympics 🙄

    The question is: Is Giannis the best player in the world?
    We're not talking about who is the GOAT, no. We are talking about who is the best player in the world right now.

    bucks won cause they have players and coaching staff wanted to win the whole time.everybody on the bucks where more aggressive and motivated then any team in the playoffs. people think that just because you got KD, James harden and Irving on the nets they're going to win all the time. upsets have happened n sports. i mean think about the spurs wasn't a superteam they won 5 championships but when the bucks win its like oh they lucky cause every team was dealing with injures. give the bucks credit they deserve this moment

      @Mr Pilapil you see? The French just beat team USA at the Olympics Wake up bro, best players in NBA aren’t even American anymore. And they keep calling the bucks world champions. USA basketball is no longer the best it’s soft with no defence and the bucks are only American champions which isn’t saying much

      @Mr Pilapil yes I agree with your comment about the NBA however it is ludicrous to label them world champions without playing and defeating other club teams around the world. I understand they would probably win but you cannot just presume they would. Just like team USA losing to Nigeria and Australia in the Olympic warm ups!!!! Correct?

    LBJ KD Kawhi and Curry have been battling injuries on and off the last few years. Giannis has continually played at the highest level in the regular season and playoffs on both sides of the floor. He’s been able to stay healthy so I say he’s the best.

    Right now as it stands, he's the best player in the NBA...all the supposed best before him didnt make it and they all had their share of ups and downs. And like many already said, did it without another superstar, and even better, he did it when his complementary players didn't have it going. I can't say Lebron could do that or anyone else could either.

    For some reason Stephen A seems like he's not happy about the fact that Giannis dominated the game the other night. I wonder why this is? Giannis is easily the best in the world right now and he didn't take the easy route by going to a super team to win a title

    These guys never played the game, like most commentators, but they have a mouth full of opinions. They just want to buddy up to LeBron and KD and other traditional star athletes because they know Giannis does not care for stuff like that. So they grudingly give him props or still doenplay him. Giannis does not fit the buddy buddy system that is Hollywood, does not care for it and these tailcoat guys cannot understand that.
