Forget triple-doubles, Giannis could become the first player in NBA history to finish among the top 20 in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks for an entire season.

On top of that, lead the team to the playoffs despite losing Parker. Should be in the MVP conversation.


He will finish top 20 in all of those unless Irving puts up a huge number of assists in the final game (which seems pretty unlikely). Pretty amazing to think that nobody has ever done it. In most years, he would definitely at least be in the debate, but with the insane year of Westbrook (and Harden for that matter) he won't even be close. He might get some votes (do they vote for more than 1 in the NBA? if they do top 3-5, he will get some I think).

Crazy thing is, Giannis has a TON of room to grow as a player yet. He keeps on developing, he'll win an MVP or two sooner rather than later.

Not a great matchup with the Raptors, especially given how the Bucks have played the last 5-6 games, but at least they are in. Give them some playoff experience and something to build off for next season.

Giannis is going to have to battle for Most Improved, could be the best contest ever for that award this year.

I wish they could have drawn Boston, they match up very well with them. I'll take my chances against Toronto, didn't really want anything to do with Washington.

Giannis is really good but Westbrook is the best player in the league right now. Some other guys like Harden can make a strong case but at end of the day, what Westbrook is doing this season absolutely unreal.

The Bucks only won 42 games (maybe 43). In the NBA, winning matters in the MVP voting. Only once in the last 30 years has a guy won who wasn't on a top-3 team in the conference.

I don't think you can put Giannis in the same sentence as the top-4 guys this year -- Harden, Westbrook, LeBron and Leonard -- and that doesn't include the guy who's won back-to-back MVPs.

I hope Harden wins the MVP, the fact that 2 rebounds per game is suddenly worth more than 10 or so wins makes me sad.

I think it's the Cabrera/Trout argument of a few years ago. Does the triple crown top the fact that Trout is a better player? I think the triple double is a flashy stat, it'll carry him

Nice win, bringing the defense! And it all started with Von Maker. Also, love the way Giannis is in Derozen's head already.

What a great game. Even when Toronto took a brief lead there in the 3rd quarter, I felt like the Bucks were still in control of the game. And I REALLY loved the intensity with Giannis out there. I don't mind the T there, with the Bucks holding the big lead. Get fired up kid! Let everyone out there know you're the alpha dog! (or deer)

I gotta say, as much as I (and everyone, basically) said that Monroe just wasn't working last year, and let's be completely honest, he wasn't.... the way Kidd's using him, he's been one of the best 6th men this year. It would be great if you could get that same level of excellent play out of him for 35 minutes a night, but I'm happy to get what we get out of him for 20 - 25 minutes and not mess with what's working.

Great win. The Raptors have that mental block in game ones. I think we all agree it's going to be tough the rest of the way.

I will say that I wish we were on the Celtics side of the bracket because I think we could take them out. Cleveland would be brutal.

That T was pure BS, Ibaka screaming like a "T-Rex" gets nothing but Giannis gets T'd up? C'mon.

All in all that was a thorough beatdown. Hope these guys can stay focused because today felt like that epic Bulls series from a couple years back.

Gianni didn't even look at him, much less stare him down or anything. Fist pump and one YEA while looking in the other direction. Since when is that a T???

Agreed with those that said the T against Giannis was absolutely bogus. Giannis did nothing but get excited, not even directed at anyone, Ibaka explodes and has to be held back and they T up Giannis for it. Absolutely disgraceful call and the fact that the game was over by that point doesn't make it any less bogus. Even the announcers on ESPN were incredulous that Giannis got T'ed up.

Imagine the same situation with the same call against Lebron, Westbrook or Curry. Not a chance in hell.

Anyone happen to watch the Warriors game today? Draymond Green blocked a dunk attempt on a 2-1 break. He went CRAZY. Screamed. Pumped his fists.

Oh, and he didn't get a technical. Not even a comment. Really seemed like the technical was a result of Derozen's feelings being hurt and him reacting like a baby. Still a joke. The NBA can (and should) rescind it.

Here's a clip. His reaction is certainly much more vocal and celebratory than Giannis IMO.

Well, we got our wish. NBA rescinded it today. Good for them, I didn't expect them to actually do it.

Thought Maker was at least a year away from playing like this. I mean, just how good is he going to be in two years?

Yeah, I thought he would really just get some garbage minutes here and there. Didn't think he'd be playing meaningful minutes in playoff games as a 19-ish year old.
