Giannis Antetokounmpo is better than Kawhi Leonard - Max Kellerman | First Take

  • Опубликовано: 10 янв 2019
  • Max Kellerman is confident that after Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks defeated James Harden and the Houston Rockets that the Greek Freak is the best player in the Eastern Conference. Max goes on to add that Mike Budenholzer is the mastermind behind why Giannis and the Bucks are so good.

    Idk man. Giannis definitely got next. But as of right now? Kawhi>Giannis. Kawhi is easily the best defender in the league if he wants to be. Giannis is a really good player but he’s a jump shot away from being better than kawhi. We saw in the playoffs against the raps when he’s down 3 or more. They just give him space cause he’s not a good shooter. The coach gets the credit for the bucks success not just giannis. Giannis is very young. He’s gonna be a beast but as of now, kawhi better.

    I’m just saying most people might disagree but I think lakers could get in there you could put lonzo on harden you got lebron destroying Houston bum 3 you can a pass first rondo at 1 at 4 kuzma then a great bench of Ingram hart Beasley chandler hart could guard Gordon on the perimeter good Ingram slash and shoot the 3 chandler shot blocker good in the paint oh also forgot lance he can kinda defend the perimeter and shoot the mid range then Beasley I dunno

    For me kawhi is better than giannis.. Look giannis the way he play he always use so much power to make a basket, while kawhi leonard he can shoot the ball very easy..

    Life's Failure 2 дня назад

    Kawhi is better defensively, better shooter, a finals mvp and he currently led the raptors over the bucks
    Giannis is a monster in the paint but is about as proficient at shooting as Charles Barkley and he has not won in the first round plus his bucks are second to the raptors

    Is it just me or is harden overrated? I mean yeah he puts up big numbers but what about them turnovers? What about that shitty shooting? What about all those free throws? I’m not saying he’s trash he’s still good but he’s definitely overrated in my opinion. As for the main topic you smoking dicks if you think Giannis is better bro wtf y’all really disrespected Leonard like that

    Max is in the moment again...Kawhi's defense is just as intimidating as Giannis' offense and Kawhi can make any shot anywhere on the court..Outplayed Lebron in the Finals as a young buck...Finals MVP and Champion Kawhi Leonard. Put some respect on it Kellerman.

    Casual fans will say Giannis is better than Kawhi. Kawhi is efficient and consistent on both ends, what more could you want. Kawhi has the accolades to back this, 2xDPOY, 2xSteal Champ, YOUNGEST FINALS MVP, 4xALL DEFENSIVE career TOV 1.4 is a better free throw and 3pt shooter by around 10%. Giannis is on the way to be great while KAWHI IS HERE. More than a system player.

    This is what i don't understand Max said a couple weeks ago Kawhi is the 2nd best player in the league and Giannis is Max is it possible for Giannis to surpass AD and Kawhi in just 1 regular season are you high or something ? Lol like Giannis has not even won a playoff series yet and all of a sudden he is better than Kawhi and Kawhi is a Champion, a Finals MVP and uas been to Multiple WCF's and it's not like Kawhi is not playing well in my opinion he is the MVP this year and the DPOY the man is averaging 27,8,3 on 49% FG while being the best defender in the league..Max get yo shit toghether man !

    Max is wrong on this one. Giannis is a great player due to his big frame but he doesn't have the complete game like Kawhi. Kawhi doesn't score 40 points but he can change the game in a matter of mins. Plus Kawhi has won a Championship and is a Finals MVP. Bucks defeated the Rockets, and the Raptors defeated the Bucks.
