This season will mark the 10th since Giannis was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks.  Now he holds the franchise hostage despite being a negative impact on the team, community and failing to stand up to China.

Good luck to all your favorite teams, except the Heat, Celtics and 76ers

I don't lie about my height so if I'm told someone is 7'5 I assume it's the truth.

Further evidence that diminutive people are discriminated against.  I have never lied about my height.  Even on my DL.

Another example of ubiquitous discrimination.

Either that, or something was lost in the conversion from the metric system.

Harden, KD, and Kyrie have combined for 7 trade requests over the last 2 seasons.  And Kyrie can also leave Dallas as a FA this offseason.

All 3 are searching for someone to carry them to a title. Just a guess, but I don’t expect another title for any.

At least Durant and Irving have been important players on championship teams, and at least Durant has been considered by his peers to have been good teammate everywhere he's been.

Harden is a proven loser who obviously has tremendous offensive skills but whose main accomplishment has been getting teams to fork over big money to him. At this point, given his track record, why would any team trade anything of value for him or pay him tens of millions of dollars?

James Harden is basically a guy who can get hot on the offensive end and that's about it. Never had good handles. Never could defend.

He "never had good handles"?  He kicks the ball away a lot but has always had good handles Fluffy as has Kyrie. WTH are you talking about?   He's an iso player.
