I mean, sure, it would have been fun, but I am glad he stays in Milwaukee.

With Doncic, he'd lose the ability to have the ball in his hands a lot which would make him more of a roll man and he's limited with his ability to pop because of his shooting. I'm not sure you pay max money for a guy who can only roll (when Doncic can get guys like Powell 11ppg)

I also think that that lack of shooting is going to be really limiting.

I'm happy Giannis is staying in Milwaukee and I'm happy he got paid. I'm also happy we can move on to better discussions. I think we're going to see that a lot of our needs are taken care of with the players we have and I think we're also going to see what we need by the playoffs this year.
Yes, both of you are absolutely nuts. Giannis and Luka would win multiple championships together. They would be one of the two or three greatest duos in NBA history. We're talking Kobe and Shaq level of greatness, only I really think they would have lasted together a lot longer than Kobe and Shaq. I'm absolutely convinced of that. So yes, if you don't want a potential dynasty, you're crazy.

Miss me with any of these notion about Giannis being a roll man being "limiting." I think he might be the greatest roll man in history and he would benefit tremendously from NOT having the ball in his hands all the time. And yes, a two-time MVP and DPOY, top 3 player in his prime is worth the max.

This is why the idea of Giannis was so intoxicating. It wasn't just the idea of putting Luka with another star. It's that I think their games are absolutely PERFECT for each other. A match made in heaven. I don't think we've seen anything like in NBA history.

I'm not too upset about it, because it was a longshot and I figured Giannis would indeed stay in Milwaukee. So it's whatever. But no, I'm not at all feeling this ambivalence about Giannis being a Maverick, like, "Meh, I didn't really want to pair our generational superstar with another generational superstar." Nope. Not feeling that at all.

And Dwight Powell is a swell guy, but I would personally drive him to the f*cking glue factory if we had Giannis. In fact, I'm not convinced we're not better off without Powell right now.

Then we have a full max contract worth of cap next summer to really go and get those guys. That's exciting to me.
Just curious. Who's still available that excites you? Because from what I'm looking at, the 2021 free agency is now a bunch of overpaid and over the hill guys that are questionable fits at best. Gobert? Derozen? Lowry? Oh... goodie.
