    +6ixTalks NBA No he shouldn't. It's not like he ever choked in the playoffs. The other teams and coaching staffs were simply better than the Bucks. I mean the Bucks were 6th and 7th in the past 2 regular seasons. Why would you expect them to pass the 1st round?

  • Jake Beddard  (Jan 10, 2019)

    Stop this! Let’s wait for Giannis to win a playoff series before we put him above the top five players in the league!

    Why is Kawhi so disrespected? The guy is easily Top 3. Is the BEST two way player in the League, is extremely effective and efficient on offence. Just because he isnt flashy or shows emotions, doesnt make him any less. Giannis is not a better player than Kawhi. Giannis cant shoot the 3, is not smarter than Kawhi, doesnt defend better than Kawhi. Giannis simply out powers his opponent, Kawhi out smarts them.

    chaolin xing lol nobody ever talks about Giannis or the bucks

  • Big Street Reppin  (Mar 16, 2019)

    Ricardo, I'm your doctor. You were comatose for 3 years and Kawhi is no longer the best two-way player in NBA. I'm terribly sorry.

  • Cameron Weaver  (Jan 10, 2019)

    If Westbrook went 13-30 and 9 turnovers he’s westbrick. Harden does it and he’s “the best offensive player in the league” 😂😂😂😂 double standards

  • Comp Cheese  (Jan 24, 2019)

    flykidddd123 and KD wasn’t? At least he had a guy like Chris Paul on his team

  • David Gim  (Jan 17, 2019)

    Cameron Weaver Harden is just slight better version of westbrick. Nothing more or less. Period.

  • Yuguang Gao  (Jan 10, 2019)

    But Kawhi just led Raptors to beat Bucks a couple days ago....

  • InDaHead  (Jan 14, 2019)

    kwstas 13 yeah and both those losses kawhi didn’t play. The one he played he won lmao. Sit down kid

  • ShowTime  (Jan 10, 2019)

    Kawhi is better. He's a better defender and has a way better jumpshot.

  • misanthropas  (Jan 13, 2019)

    +giannis stathopoulos You are trying to reason with people believing that it was Giannis fault that Bucks were blocked in PlayOffs from advancement!!! with homecourt disadvantage and his stats not landsliding !!! because his teammates were blocked and his coach was not par with the they cannot distinguish between best player and MVP as if Raptors were not 1st seed in East without Kawhi....and the Bucks were not a 2nd tier Eastern Team without Giannis, they know same amount of Basketb...

  • Anim Dankwah  (Jan 10, 2019)
