    I think the thing I like the most about Giannis is he doesnt try to force things that arent in his game. He is so similar in many regards to Lebron except that. I think if you asked Lebron some of his biggest regrets he would mention how he tried to force the outside shot too much early in his career. He tried to fade away and all that as opposed to playing to his strengths. Giannis has figured that all out at such a young age. He's wise beyond his years. I love him

    He's shot 35% from 3 since February 1st. Open 3s are not bad shots for him to take anymore.

    I have no problem with him taking threes. Just don’t see the need to disparage Lebron to do so. Every superstar player should try to do more. Only way to grow.

    Oh you're one of those people. I didn't "disparage" Lebron. It's a pretty well known fact that Lebron settled for an outside game early in his career and largely avoided backing people down in the post when he had that big advantage and he's made that known as well. Like when he brought Hakeem Olajuwon in to train him on inside moves. I'm a big Lebron stan so

    yeah it was a pretty tough blow but that's not a flagrant 2. embiid was making a basketball move in a way. flagrant 2s aren't for that imo.

    and why would you even want embiid kicked out of this game? it's been great so far.

    Embiid is every big guy you play pick up ball with that is pissed its full court and only shoots 3s so he doesn’t have to go baseline to baseline. Usually asks for a sip of your water bottle too.

    I was in the arena for that one and the Thunder's next game in Denver. I've never seen venom like that come out of a crowd. Nuggets won the next game and I walked down the street outside the arena listening to a massive chant of "fuck OKC." This was like February
