I think Giannis will be more comfortable with the push shot and scoring from the perimeter in general.  And while I think he can get to 70-75% from the line the more important stat is getting to the line.  The fact that he took 19 free throws, in a Finals close out game, would worry me if I was the rest of the league.  He has that killer mentality which you just can't teach. 

Now the Nets are more talented, especially with Kyrie.  That said I expect Holiday to be much more comfortable offensively and their new additions to be a lot better than people think.  They essentially traded Tucker, Forbes, and Teague for DDV, Allen, Hood, and Ojeyle.  That's a win for the Bucks.  And Hood may be more productive than people expect as an instant offense guy off the bench.  Their overall roster is much stronger and their 2 and 3 compliment Giannis quite well.


This may turn out to be a bad prediction, but I think by the end of the year, Jordan Nwora is going to be getting more minutes than both Semi and Hood.

Well if 1 of the 3 are productive for 15 mins on the floor that's a huge plus for the Bucks.

He's really gonna have to improve defensively to win those minutes. No question he can fill it up, though.

As chatter intensifies about the Nets trading Kyrie if he doesn't get vaccinated, and thinking of how Wiggins acquiesced...this tweet had me CACKLING

"The Sixers would welcome Ben Simmons returning".  Translation:  we can't get close to what we want if we trade the guy right now.  Philly fan will probably not be very "welcoming " is my bold prediction.  :)

Nets front office must be shocked to learn that Kyrie Irving is still Kyrie Irving.

If the Nets hamstring themselves because Kyrie's a moron, does the Bucks upcoming repeat championship need an asterisk like everyone wanted to give last years's given the Nets' injuries in the playoffs?

Winning Championships  are always earned. So no asterisk needed.

Sounds like no one will be surprised if Kyrie quits over this and gives up 70 million?  I find that hard to believe.... but then again doesn't he believe dinosaurs didn't exist?  If he's done the Bucks are now the favorites to repeat.

Why? He's already earned enough to be considered generational wealth. An extra $70M isn't going to let him do much of anything he can't already do.

So Kyrie claims he's not actually anti-vaccine, he's just holding off on the vaccine cause he's upset that people are losing their jobs in NYC over the vaccine mandate.  Is this all just elaborate performance art before getting vaccinated as the season begins?

Probably.  And I don't care how much money he has, 70m is 70m.

Kyrie had access to the vaccine long before mandates were a thing.
This is poorly done spin by his reps.

He's always been a man of the people.

Stephon Marburg compared Kyrie to Muhammad Ali for his courageous stand.

The same Ali that did a PSA for vaccines back in the late 70s.
