It's certainly looking like Giannis at the moment.

I agree, that would've been a smarter play on Booker's part. Credit to Jrue Holiday for his defense, though. He's been quite impressive this series.

I was thinking Embiid, but yeah, have to go with Giannis. He's more 'box-office' and can draw in the casual fans like Magic, Bird, Jordan & Kobe.

My man Bobby Portis with 16 points to help win an NBA championship :applaud: Milwaukee loves him as much as I do.

What a performance from Giannis. Watching him score at will is crazy, but it's even more ridiculous watching him teleport wherever he needs to be on D.

All-time performance from Giannis indeed! Great Finals series.

Giannis is going to be a cheat code in the next video game, if he isn't already.

"How frustrated are you for Chris, right now?" it seems like that reporter knew something, and jumped the gun.

Rachel Nichols may have topped that one by asking CP3 how he felt after Game 6. "Feels like we lost."

Well, the off-season has officially begun! What do you all think of the Grizzlies-Pelicans trade?

Someone explain to me how two ball-dominant cats like Lebron & Westbrook can work together on the court?

Definitely cause for scepticism there. Certainly, one of them won't be putting up familiar numbers.

Lebron's a terrific passer - he's at his best when he's surrounded by legit, knock-down shooters (so he can drive and dish). Cats like Klay Thompson, Bradley Beal, Steph Curry, even Kevin Durant would be perfect with him. Russ is not that, and we saw what happened between he and Durant when they blew that series against Golden State.

Lebron, Russ & AD are going to have to have a "meeting of the minds". Reminds me of the 'Big Three's' first year in Miami.

I think they will have to come to terms that the offense will need to be run primarily through AD, which will then open up opportunities for LeBron and Russ, which will then open up easier opportunities for AD. IMO, the first thing Russ is going to have to do is stop shooting the team out of the offense with those pull up jump shots. It's not about who will get less touches, but about how often they will make it easier for each other to be effective.

I'd say Russ will also have to forego his identity as Mr. Triple-Double.

They will all average triple doubles. Assisting to each other 5 times a game. Imagine them all crashing the boards to grab 10 a game.
