The Bucks are really disappointing, they should be better.

Why don't they just play Giannas at the 5 and surround him with Bledsoe, Middleton, Brogdon, and Parker? Put Henson on the bench. The Celtics don't have any real size to make them pay for this. This is the answer to the Bucks problems as currently constructed.

This. Giannis is capable of defending the paint and itís not like AL Horford or Baynes would punish him down low. They should surround him with shooters and playmakers just like how the Sixers build around Simmons. Henson is holding this team back. Play Giannis at the 5 for 30 mins a game and play fast with movement and shooting.

Bledsoe
Middleton
Snell
Parker
Giannis

Boston winning this series doesn't expose Giannis.

I know that this may come as a shocker to your pea brain, but the team with the best player on the court doesn't always win... I mean basketball has literally never ever been that.

I fully expect Boston to advance AND Giannis to have a monster series.

I deleted the post because Wally pointed out this is a redundant thread, you illiterate goof.

While you learn to read, consult Merriam-Webster for their definition of "average."

As previously stated, the Celtics will suffer the first upset loss in this playoffs for the following reasons:
  • The Bucks have the advantage at guard, Bledsode is more proven than Rozier.
  • While the Celtics are slightly stronger at the wing spots with Tatum and Brown, Middleton has had a career year and all they need is Snell to be consistently productive.
  • However, Giannis is a pronounced edge over the Celtics' bigs. They have to throw waves of defenders at the Greek Freak to contain him if not stop him outright.
  • But the Celtics' pronounced edge in coaching and depth will steal them a couple of games, and may be enough to advance to the second round.
But Antetokoumpo has been steadily improving year by year, and this is where he breaks through with a dominant performance.
Milwaukee in six.
