    Idk man. Giannis definitely got next. But as of right now? Kawhi>Giannis. Kawhi is easily the best defender in the league if he wants to be. Giannis is a really good player but he’s a jump shot away from being better than kawhi. We saw in the playoffs against the raps when he’s down 3 or more. They just give him space cause he’s not a good shooter. The coach gets the credit for the bucks success not just giannis. Giannis is very young. He’s gonna be a beast but as of now, kawhi better.
