    This guy SMH kawhi miss 22 game's and Milwaukee won 2 more games than us if the Greek freak was out for 22 games they would be in the third spot in the east do people at ESPN do homework/research? Raptors went 17-5 without kawhi.

    TO GEORGE.....Those stats are during the regular season. Where do you think the Raps would be in the playoffs without Kawhi? NOWHERE!!!

    Why do you ask such an ignorant question? I watched all the buck's playoff games! Kawhi exposed ALL of Giannis' flaws, etc. also, why would Giannis even be mentioned as an MVP! Giannis cannot shoot a jump shot, he cannot shoot free throws and what player, 7' tall, just wants to stay outside the rim area. Rarely does he protect the rim. I would certainly like to know what ignorant fools decided Giannis should be considered an MVP?

    Giannis is MVP, that means he's more valuable to his team than any player in the league this year, including Kawhi Leonard

    17-5 without Kawhi, that's really all that needs to be said to win this argument. The raptors starting 5 is better but the Bucks bench is deeper. Giannis is way more valuable, he's going to win the award for most valuable player this season Steven a lmao the Bucks could not win a playoff series without him. The raptors prolly didn't even need Kawhi to show up in the first round.

    In the playoff when he was in the bench they lose the lead . Season don't matter . Just like Klay said is playoof time when they ask him about Lillard

    SAS is the kind of guy that even if Giannis has 10 straight rings with 10 finals mvp's,is gonna be like "that kid couldnt shoot the three!".

    Have to agree with Max in this. Yes, Milwaukee has the better team without their star. BUT, by such a small margin. Lowry / Bledsoe Lowry is a bit better. Has made an all-star game, Bledsoe has not. Gasol / Lopez Again small advantage for Gasol. Middleton / Green Middleton by a decent margin Siakim Ibaka OG / Brogdon Mirotic Brown Again advantage might go to the Raptors here Also Milwaukee is really built around Giannis at this point. Toronto just aquired Kawhi this year.

    Mr.Smith is right.Kawai can't even take a rest or the bottom will fall out of Toronto.The Bucks are deep with many good players.This series proves that.

    The question was who is MVP for their team it is Giannis, if the question is who is complete player overall it is Kawhi. Giannis is only better at driving to the net and defense, Kawhi is good at many sides of the game.

    @dionisis x I agree with these two... But scoring from any position and clutch moments Kwahi is ahead. In short they are both valuable in some aspect.

    Imo Terry Rozier was right, I think the thing they didnt look at was that. The bucks roster is better than the Raptors but that's because the synergy is great because of Giannis and all of their guys like Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez look better than they normal because Giannis fits perfectly with them.

    People are so quick to discredit SAS. Milwaukee has 5 players not named Giannis averaging over 10 ppg this postseason. Raptors have 2 players averaging over 10 ppg not named Kawhi. The question isn't who is better, but it is who is the most important. If they switch places then Giannis will be more important because Raptors would depend on him a lot

    so Stephen A always knew Brook Lopez was that great and would take him over Mark Gasol and Ibaka 2 weeks ago??? Kawhi avg 3 assists for his career and he is used to play every 3-4 days for 35 mins.Now he is tired and the other players dont look that good around him, what a big surprise.

Terry gotta learn if you gonna be on tv just be truthful bruh, it don’t matter if they got you cos your mentality as NBA should be to get them next time anyway. Come on my guy

    Officially i ll never take serious anything sas says cause he is either ignorant or paid a lot to say bs on purpose. Danny Green nba champion and lots of playoff experience alongside kawhi, Serge ibaka ex all star also plaed in nba finals and conf finals, kyle lowry also got conference finals experience and gasol has been there with memphis dafuq are you talking about as if milwakee sudenly became a tank team or sth? They aint better individually they are better playing as a team AROUND Giannis end of story for this argument
