Fikrlar

  • The gaping scallion summatively spill because avenue dentsply attract regarding a homely search. ragged, pleasant tent

  • Jalen Rose is the only person on ESPN I listen to. Maybe Wilbon and Kornheiser. The rest are clowns.

  • What game 6 showed us is that if Giannis keeps hitting his free-throws, he's unguardable. Forget about developing a midrange game and a 3 point shot. Just. hitting. free-throws. makes him UNGUARDABLE. That's how insane he is. God help the league if he ever learns to shoot.

  • Giannis will be the greatest Buck when he retires.

  • Who's here after he won FMVP 😈

  • We want becky with the good hair back

  • Jacoby hates Giannis and he doesn't know basketball

  • Ladies and gentlemen look at G how he won he didn't cry like a little girl like a baby like so many other players cry this is how you celebrate as a man no tears just happiness and overjoyed

    • @bruh Dude act like a man not a nowaday man which is laughable but a real one.

    • What’s the problem with being emotional when you accomplish something you’ve spent you’re whole life working for.

  • It's soo rigged feel bad for the people who think this shits real

  • If the Ref;s werent calling for the bucks it would have been a great Game but the suns had to play against the Ref;s and the Bucks

  • It would mean nothing. Everyone who is anyone has been hurt during the playoffs . A Bucks championship would be like the Raptors championship.

    • So what ain’t like they hurt them if they win they got a ring period

  • The ten bat assembly like because charles karyologically manage about a disillusioned city. halting, gorgeous top

  • C'mon CP3

  • They still gonna discredit his ring

  • He only 26 and accomplished so much right now he definitely a future first ballot hall of famer💯

  • Bruh everyone is not gonna be Steph curry lol who cares if some super stars aren't great shooters they still get buckets Jordan magic and even brid didn't shoot as many threes as players now but they are still the best of all time.

  • I think Phoenix will crumble

  • Ummmmm hes only 26 not 28.........Crazyy

  • It means he didnt have to jump ship to win a chip.

  • If he wins he would be top 5 pf all time only behind duncan pettit nowitzki and kg

  • Thats all young booker thinks its about shot making..thats easy what about bringing out the best in your teammates and making winning plays.

  • 181st comment

  • 26* years old

  • I can’t believe the Bucks are the champions! There’s no way the Suns win tonight! It’s time to celebrate

  • Jalen voice sounds different

  • Jacoby looks like he in a public restroom 🚻

  • Scott Foster is closing us out tonight. Good season yall congrats being Champs. 👍

  • you can tell the announcers who either bet on the Suns or the ones who really want CP3 to win one

  • i dont think it will do much of anything This is gonna go down as the season time forgot ,and the last time you could say that about the nba was about 50 years ago unless you can find someone who can remember who besides gus and sikma played for the sonics when they beat washington

  • 95% of the suns haven’t felt a playoff heartbreak, they haven’t played a elimination game and lost. Giannis have been there 4 years in a row and now ultimately Giannis win tonight !!

  • Imagine Giannis playing in the illegal defense era…

    • Oh you talking about real bball lol

  • Booker ZERO assists in the 4th qtr

  • Song name?

  • 26

    • @Moses Thompson he’s 27🤡

    • Hes 26 years old an 226 days old

    • He’s 27🤡

  • Only 3 brother with rings

  • Me personally....who's tired of the NBA elite creating a super mon-star team just to win a championship ....it was bound to happen that a ordinary team with heart "win it all ".

  • Giannis CAN win with those cats!

  • I would mean nothing. Too many injuries on other teams and that's why they are here. Kd took them to 7 games by himself. They got lucky Kylie and harden was hurt

    • @JBoogie510 you're no expert in the NBA or basketball in general, cause if you where, you would know that the league is known for superteams. You acted like it became a trend since 2008, but it's the only league in the world that it is almost certain who will dominate the season before it starts. If the Bucks wins it, then props for them, but it's a matter of time before the Nets gets even and wins. Or maybe Lebum finds a way to bring in Lillard to the Lakers. Either way, the super teams are here to stay, whenever you like it or not.

    • @JBoogie510 score updates

    • If you devalue The Bucks championship because they didn’t have to go through an overnight championship contender team that had three all star franchise players that teamed up to play together at full health ….then you don’t know basketball. “They got lucky Kyrie and Harden got hurt” Kyrie and Harden shouldn’t even be on the same team together. The Nets are lucky that Giannis didn’t go to the Warriors or Lakers.

    • I agree with you on that, but at the same time, injuries happens all the time in the heat of the game. Hopefully, the Nets will get the chance to get even with the Bucks next season without any injuries

  • Bucks can't let this go back to Phoenix

  • Now you get it Jalen lol

  • Giannis is 26 not 27 until December 6.

    • @vinnie that’s media for you. They want to make him be on the same age with Lebron on his first title.

    • @Timothy Modede why he say 27 then🤡💩🤮

    • @vinnie December 6, 1994 is 26yrs old. Do you a calculator for proper explanation fool.

    • He’s 27🤡

  • Differnce. Booker is impressive. But giannis is historical

  • “And keep in mind he can only Run and Dunk” -Rashad Phillips probably

  • I think Jacoby knows something we don't!

  • He could end up being one of the best fowards/centers to play cuz i know this is the first of many. Dynasty fr

  • Jalen Rose is espn’s token homosexual.

  • Giannis is the superstar that NBA has needed after the past decode of superteams and entitled stars wanting to take the easy way out

    • One thing that the playoffs has shown us, is that sometimes, the best team is usually the healthiest team. The Bucks or the Suns wouldn't be where they are if Harden, Kyrie, AD, Murray, Trae or Kawhi were at 100%. Giannis was lucky his knee was only hyperextended. At the end of the day, it is still a valid point that this year, that championship will have somewhat of an asterisk on it because of that reason

  • Trash

  • Suns are going to force game 7 and win at home.

  • Well said and bottom line. Unstoppable, in the paint and soon to be, solidified, Future Hall of Famer, if a win, tonight. Go BUCKS🏆

  • Don’t ever compare me to him - kd

  • People have been hating on Giannis his whole career saying he has no skill and can only dunk. That slander needs to stop!!!

  • Booker is a great shooter, but all he does is throw forearms and elbows on his drives to the hole.

  • Am I the only one that thinks that Gianns and KD are neck and neck if he gets this chip? Stats and awards don’t lie

    • @Walt Quietpro but that doesn't mean that it is facts. But let's agree to disagree

    • We all have our opinions.

    • @Walt Quietpro KD has won both his championship as the leader of the Warriors, you cannot discredit that just because of the way that he did. Even if Giannis wins it either tonight or in game 7, he still has a long way to go for him to be in the same level of KD, LeBum or Kawhi

    • Durant took the easy road to win a chip. Giannis decided to stay with Milwaukee so if he gets the win tonight he's ahead of Durant.

    • Shoot I'd say Giannis is better legacy wise if he wins bc he won without the odds impossibly stacked in his favor.(Durant will still have better stats though bc he's older)

  • A Finals MVP would place Giannis in the top 20 all time and top 5 Pf of all time.

    • @balthorpayne At this pace, he can leapfrog Curry, Hakeem and Durant for that 10-11 range.

    • If not top 20, very close. He is a sure-fire top 20 in a season or two at this rate. He may very well retire in the top 10.

  • It wouldn't mean anything because he beat an injured nets team that would've beaten the bucks at full health.

    • @JBoogie510 another bad take, you female. At least the Heat will be remembered as a championship franchise. Stick to watching Fox news instead of watching the NBA

    • @hans duroseau why would I want three 30+ year old soft franchise players who’s too soft for competition on my team? I rather watch my team develop into a championship contender. It wouldn’t be any fun following a overnight championship contender with mercenary players that I didn’t watch grow and develop. Those teams leave no legacy. See the Miami Hrat…NO LEGACY LEFT BEHIND. Cause they were a fake champion,

    • @JBoogie510 right now, you're in your feelings because the 3 of them are not playing on your team. Otherwise, you wouldn't be talking a bunch of junk about them, acting like they took your lunch money, or steal your girl. I might be wrong about those two things, but it still doesn't change the fact that you sound like a bitter woman when it's about basketball.

    • @hans duroseau put what together….three all star franchise players in their prime together? Anybody can put 3 franchise players in their prime together. If every team in the NBA had three all star franchise players in their prime then I would respect it. The Nets are simply a team of soft franchise players that had to team up because they’re not tough enough to go through the grind of The Process. They don’t want to compete on a level playing field.

    • @JBoogie510 that's your opinion, but that doesn't mean that it is facts. The Nets still has to go through the same process like every other team to get to where they need to be, to become a championship contender. Next year, they will put it all together and if they win it all, you have to respect it

  • Yeah nobody is slowing Booker. Pj Tucker has lost his Defensive touch. We gonna let book eat but stop everyone. Same way they don't have answer for Giannis. And if Middleton and Jrue have a good game it's a wrap.

    • he's 36 now, which is crazy. He looks 24 but with gray hair 😂

  • As a Jordan GOAT Truther, 4 years ago when Giannis started to pop I was saying I was more worried about Giannis taking Jordan's crown more than I ever was about LeBron. I called Giannis the "Maybe Baby Giant Russell Westbrook but with a Brain and Defense. He plays hard on both ends more than any player since Jordan & Hakeem. If Giannis wins this, keeps adding skills like he has & gets to 5 or 6 with a WINNING Finals record at the end of his career, he'll be JUSTIFIABLY Live in the GOAT Argument one day NOT LeBron. If he gets more than 6, even I would have to call him the GOAT over Jordan. NEVER thought I'd say that in my lifetime.

  • Yo Brandon Jennings is in Milwaukee tonight bucks in 6 baby! FEAR THE DEER BABY.

  • The word "Legacy" needs to be banned from ESPN..

  • He got a ring in a week finals , no lebron many players got hurt -_- i'm a realist

  • Come on bucks win this chip for Milwaukee

  • I see a blowout in Milwaukee tonight and the media making endless excuses for the Suns.

  • Jalen the only one putting respect on Giannis

    • yep

    • Jalen Rose and Nick Wright the only guys supporting and putting respect on his name in the american media.

    • Most people are respecting Giannis now, but Jalen's been the one on his side from the beginning.

    • He must have watched flights video

  • Staying loyal to the organization that drafted him and not demanding a trade to a bigger market

    • Staying loyal to a competent and honest organization, yes; but no to a dysfunctional one, just check out how the Wolves rewarded KG's commitment.

  • If he wins the finals, he will get his first ring!!!!!

  • It will validate those mvps. Bc I was a doubter

    • @Silencio Thequiet definitely right, he helped that label too several playoff runs. But like nick wright said he only had Bledsoe and streaky Middleton

    • I won't lie to you, I was one too until the Bucks took on and won Miami's challenge this year but it's difficult to know who's for real in today's league: NBA new rules, medias' 24/7 chatter and players ' s constant lobbying are really off-putting when it comes to talent evaluation.

  • It’s would be great for his legacy. However you have to clarify it. It was after a shortened season which caused heavy injuries around the league which especially hurt teams that were title contenders. It doesn’t make his ring any less legit but other than going through an injured Nets team, they really didn’t have too much push back. Once again their ring is as legit as any others but let’s not try to make it something it’s not as though he took out healthy super teams to win his ring.

    • @YRN SHEIK didn't KD drop like 48 points

    • @Mrsamuraij I Well Giannis was injured too. But again we can recreate the world with IF

    • @Stephen A Simp an did trae didn't get injured as well maybe the hawks win that series

    • @Mrsamuraij I well they didn’t they knock the snake out of kd body 😂😂😂🔥

    • @Stephen A Simp yeah if they stayed healthy nets in 6

  • Giannis if he wins: 2x mvp 1x dpoy 1x all star game mvp 5x all star 3x all nba first team 2x all nba second team 3x nba all defensive first team Nba all defensive second team Nba MIP Nba all rookie second team Nba champion Finals mvp All in his first 8 years

  • 1st ballot hall of famer for starters 😂 Giannis’s story is amazing, he’s proved alot of people wrong. Now it’s time to finish the job

  • Cp3 is the Carmelo Anthony of Pgs overrated

  • Today is the day of salvation! Call upon the name of the Lord today and be saved! Don’t wait another second, we could die soon. Repent and put your trust in Christ today. He loves you and he wants you to be in heaven more than you want to be in heaven yourself. Praise the Lord! If you would like to be saved pray this prayer: Jesus, I admit that I am a sinner and that I need a savior. I repent of my sins and give my life to you. I believe that You died and rose again for my sins. I make You the Lord of my life right now. I am Yours. Transform me to act more like You. In Jesus Name Amen.

  • JALEN IS THE WANNABE SPIKE LEE...😅

  • We need to start considering Giannis after Tim Ducan as the second greatest power forward to ever live

    • @Juel Indino Agreed. TD is too boring 😂😂

    • Giannis is Much better than Duncan....more electrifying, dominant and athletic!!!!!

    • Y’all heard what I said🦶

    • No we don't. Greatest ever in anything has to have continued excellence over many years. Not one impressive playoff run which is what Giannis has so far. His last couple of playoff exits were very disappointing performances by him.

    • Not yet

  • Giannis is doing it the right way. He didn’t run from the process, he embraced it and said going through the failures of the playoffs is all part of becoming a true champion. Shout out to him for not teaming up and forming a super team and wining a championship organically.

    • @Gonzalo Nah - Pop is not perfect but he is up there(in my book). He made mistakes but he won 4 titles for his ball club in a very competitive conference and has this rare quality to recognize his mistakes and adapt. Not a Spurs fan but he single-handedly built his franchise as an exec.Remember he was gm before he decided to coach himself, he walked the talk.

    • @Silencio Thequiet Pop is a terrible exec

    • @Marco Brolo There are no right way just simple principles to live by: no yes-men, due diligence, know your limitations as a market,franchise and team; privilege staff and players that fit your vision, stay competitive by respect for your fan base, reward smart and hard work;patience and discipline; take calculated risks when the timing is right; and if all fail be honest with yourself and shift gear. It ain't easy but there are more serious problems in the real world than running an NBA team.

    • @Corpy Hogan Thank you! Been saying this for years, like in any industry\market, 80% of the execs are just followers and 20% are the real leaders. Too many average or mediocre decision-makers always quick to lay the blame at the feet of the roster they built themselves.

    • @Marco Brolo Core players becoming champions through development, competition and experience. The wrong way is multiple franchise players teaming up with each other in the off season to form a super team Because they don’t want to go through the grind of competition.

  • We could see: Giannis 2019 MVP Gianis 2020 MVP / DPOY Giannis 2021 Finals MVP, NBA Champion, All Star Game MVP insane

    • @Jets Set . facts

    • It broke all MJ and lebron record before hitting 27 years old

    • All by the age of 26

    • @H.O.F. SCHOOL THREAT yeah but he got mvp Fatigued or something like that

    • @Jordan Dean u dint even ignore, u already HATE lonnie 💯💯💯💯 thas wassup, mvp in 3 years tops Im telling you

  • when it’s all said and done giannis will be the greatest PF ever.

    • @Joel Taylor he is only 26 man, too early to rank him among the greats.

    • Giannis gets a 3 peat and we start talking. I hope he does. Love that dude

    • @Joel Taylor u must be on crack right now because literally nobody even thinks he is even top 5. Many have him in 9 or 10. By the end of his career Giannis will be the best PF of all time. Rings don’t show how great a plaid because rings are a team accomplishment. Mvps, DPOY, all star, all nba and more show how great a player is.

    • Hold your horses !!

    • @ANEESH ANAND yes giannis' accolades while not being in his prime yet are mind blowing but I don't see Giannis being better than Tim Duncan Tim is a top 4 player of all time that has really good cases for being the goat, Duncan was 1 shot away from being 6-0 in the finals and also was the best player on his team every year he played until 2014-2015.

  • It would mean a lot to the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin, and some of the U.P.

  • Right to the point on Giannis but let’s see how the game plays tonite

  • well...A Title and probable Finals MVP would go very well with 2 MVP's and a DPOY, right?

    • Score updates

    • Yeah and with no superteams Unlike the 'supposed to be Best player in the world' who cant beat Nigeria and Australia lmao

    • @Josh Wallace I know…I was stating my opinion on why it helps him but not as much as some may think.

    • @be witness I didn't say he would be top 10

    • @Josh Wallace even so he’s not moving into the top 10 with 1 championship. He would solidify himself in that Dirk range 15th-25th range.

  • jalen & jacoby needs more clip uploads on youtube. this show is better than KJZ.

  • Giannis is a 5 playing as a 4, doing Shaq things. Bringing back 80s/90a b-ball. Awesome. Good stuff and good luck tonight.

    • It's called a STRETCH 5 ! 🤙🏀🤙

    • Score update

    • @SELFMADE 7 Shaq is obviously capping the freak is amazing Shaq was unstoppable.

    • @abdurrahman nashit shaq himself admitted Giannis is better than him

    • @SELFMADE 7 I wouldn't say it's cut and dry that Shaq is better than Giannis, but Shaq's ultimate dominance was a level above Giannis's. He could get his way however he wanted, and he was actually an off ball low post scorer. He would constantly position and reposition without the ball, get the ball and yam it as he pleased. Giannis still needs to find his angle and then explode, but often he doesn't have that angle. For sure Giannis is more complete and mobile so I wouldn't just give it to Shaq hands down, but Giannis just isn't at Shaq's level of physical dominance.

  • That ring would be more valuable than kd rings

    • And three of Lebron’s as well. Am-I-right?

    • Oh it is trust me kd rings mean nun 😂👌🏾👌🏾

    • true

    • Whether it's Giannis or CP3 / Booker

  • I want the suns to win if they don’t I will cry 😭

    • (T.O. voice) getcha Kleenex ready!!!

  • would make him top 15 all time

    • @Joel Taylor he just dropped 50 and 13 to win his first ring. Nba champion, finals mvp , 2x mvp , dpoy . That’s top 15

    • @Joel Taylor naw top 20-30 two mvps dpoy n a finals mvp come on bro

    • He's only 26 entering his prime. he has enough time to be the greatest PF of all time. Can also have a case to be a top 10 player ever.

    • He's definitely on his way, but I'd pump the brakes on claiming that right now

    • Naw he will be top 45 if he wins this ring and he will finish his career top 20 to 25 all time

  • It would mean that Giannis did it the hard way he didn't join or create a superteam he stayed with the organization that drafted him and they built a team around him

    • @Trill Troy it’s always injures clown kd rings mean nun superteam 😂🤡🤡🤡

    • Of course Giannis the goat

    • @Trill Troy just like the Suns got to the nba finals because of injuries

    • Injuries

  • 8th

  • This might go unnoticed but I’m an up & coming Artist worth the listen 👂

    • @Joel Taylor MITTN OUT NOW

    • @Ruis Franco I hate to be that guy but who asked? 🤔🤔

  • First

  • You will be SUPER RICH in AUGUST 2021 like this if you agree 💥💥👍💥👍💥👍💥👍💥💥👍👍💥👍💥👍💥👍💥👍

  • Top 2-3 PF all time for sure

    • @Joel Taylor he's only 26 entering his prime. he has enough time to be the greatest PF of all time. Can also have a case to be a top 10 player ever.

    • No 🤨🤨 he's definitely a top 4 to 6 all time foward tho, and he will finish as the second best power forward in history IMO

    • Maybe the best ever. Yet to see

  • First

  • First
