Mobley (Sprained left toe) and Edwards (Hyper-extended right knee) both got injured in the third quarter. So I'm going to be without my two best scorers for a couple of weeks. Time for some more 50 point games from SGA? :whistle:

Looks like the Warriors are still good, but not quite as fearsome.

They will always be dangerous as long as they have Curry and Thompson's shooting. I felt good after the first quarter, but then they poured in 41 points in the second quarter :shifty:

Thanks.

Hopefully I can find the motivation to load up this game more often than I have in the past few months. I really want to get to the next draft and add some more young talent to this team.

I'm not sure you will need much more talent if your record means anything. This team seems to be pretty stacked when looking at what a young team is expected to be.

Bucks give their fans a late Christmas present as Giannis re-signs

Image


The Milwaukee Bucks today secured the most sought-after signature in the NBA, with Greek superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo signing a four-year extension worth $155 million. According to sources the final year of the deal is a player option.

It really is a massive coup for a small market franchise to lock down their star player to a long-term contract. Seemingly half of the teams in the league were lining up to pitch to Giannis in the upcoming free agency period. The likes of Toronto, New York, Miami, Boston, Atlanta and even Oklahoma City were rumoured to be ready to offer up a max-level contract to him.

There were even rumours online that LeBron James and Chris Paul were contemplating taking massive pay cuts next season in order to fit Giannis in at the Lakers alongside themselves and Anthony Davis. That would have been the ultimate power move in a league that has recently seen a trend of superstars joining forces to create super-teams.

But Giannis wasn't tempted by the bright lights of Los Angeles or the beaches of Miami. He enjoys staying out of the limelight in Wisconsin. He revealed today that, "I love it in Milwaukee man. My family is settled here, the people are nice and I really enjoy playing with this group of guys."

He also added, "My goal is to bring a championship to Milwaukee. It's been 50 years of waiting for this fanbase, so it would be so much more special to win one here than to go somewhere else and win three or four."

Giannis is the strong favourite to be crowned MVP this season. He leads a pack full of new exciting names in contention for the award, such as Zion Williamson, Nikola Jokic, Anthony Davis and Ben Simmons. Giannis is averaging 29 points, 15 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks per game. It is virtually the exact same stat line he put up last season when he narrowly finished second behind Houston's James Harden in the voting.

Milwaukee currently sit fourth in the eastern conference behind Boston, Brooklyn and Atlanta. They will be hoping to avoid Philadelphia in the playoffs as the 76ers have eliminated them in the conference semifinals in bot of the past two years.


After this announcement the biggest name potential free agents still remaining are LeBron James, Donovan Mitchell, Blake Griffin, Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol. Meanwhile, the likes of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Chris Paul, DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday could all opt-out of their player options for next season and become unrestricted free agents.

Really surprising move for Giannis. Seeing how the Sixers bullied him for 2 seasons with their depth, you would think he would at least wait until Summer to force their hand to get him help. I'm sure the virtual Bucks are excited though!

Yeah, it was a surprise for sure. I don't mind it though because it's better for my team if he doesn't team up with another star somewhere :wink:

That's true too. Giannis resigning is probably good for every other team who wants to win (though I'm sure they'd be happier with him).

Your Rockets are also intriguing as they went the opposite route as real life. They signed Muscala, Thompson, and kept Capela. Though I haven't seen enough analytical evidence to support full-time small ball (due to the mitigation of the very important offensive rebounding), apparently the virtual Rockets haven't this time around either.
