The Bucks and Suns meet in the NBA Finals.
What should we look out for in the Conference Finals?
The Milwaukee Bucks take momentum into their series with Brooklyn.
Looking ahead to a hotly anticipated playoff rematch.
No other two-time MVP has had to face the level of scrutiny that Giannis Antetokounmpo has thus far in his career. Popular narratives surrounding the Greek Freak in mainstream media have since gone sour, focusing on his unflattering history of playoff performances or his lack of shooting.
Here’s an objective truth readers may not want to hear: Zach LaVine, Aaron Gordon, and arguably even Bradley Beal are not better at basketball than Khris Middleton. Not only is the smooth-shooting swingman a legitimate second option on a winning team, but he also deserves a third All-Star selection.
Consider this scenario: the season ends today, on 12th January 2019, who would the postseason awards be distributed to in this case? For the majority of these awards there is often a clear-cut winner (we’re looking at you, Luka Doncic), but when it comes to the MVP award, two names spring to mind: James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
