Based on what we’ve seen... what would make anyone think 🤔 that Giannis is gonna “develop” a jump shot 🤣😂. This is funny 😆. KD is one of the ALLTIME great shot makers/scorers in game history. Lol being able to shoot and stretch defense is a major skill. That cant be discounted. Greek is a great player, but taking advantage of the style of NBA play that is today, makes him look ALOT better. KD could play and be just as dynamic in ANY era. No way Giannis could play his style game in a different era. So since KD is more versatile at the SAME height, he gets the edge at whos better.

Of course they would start a team with giannis, they are gms. They look at age, ability, length etc. But it only said 30%, different gms have different needs and views for their organizations. I don't think you could go wrong starting with AD either. Both AD and the Greek Greek are young to build around. Are they better than Durant would be in a playoff game tonight? Maybe not

Molly shut the fuck up
Top 5 players in the league (people will disagree with me, but that’s because they take stats out of context. There are millions of factors outside of the player’s control that can influence stats, not to mention there are many parts of the game that don’t show up in the stat sheet at all. The only way to determine these factors is actually watching them. I have watched the nba extensively, so if you’re a stat sheet watcher then don’t even try to argue with me cuz your arguments are irrelevant). That being said 1. Lebron 2. Curry 3. Kd 4. Giannis 5. Hard choice between ad, kawhi, and harden. If I HAD to choose I’d say kawhi. Harden’s offensive stats are inflated by since he’s such a ball hog, but I can’t really hold that against him since his team would actually be worse if he wasn’t a ball hog. His team needs it right now. Still a defensive liability though. I also think kawhi just has a better all around game than ad. But like I said, number 5 was a really hard choice, and any of these 3 players have a strong argument for them.

nobody is not moving up on LeBron LeBron got more percentage of points in everybody in the career-wise he made more points than all his careers dinner rookies did this is why he should stop talking he called Jordan 23 and he said a lot of other things now he's saying everybody is going to pass LeBron and also KD is 5th place he's the second best player in the game this man really need to leave Sports if y'all name in people that's passing LeBron name those people because one nobody scores more than LeBron hog the ball and 2 KD shoes more threes and he drives in Moore same thing with LeBron one season doesn't count all of them do so think about what you say what's the best player in the world because those players are not the best players in the world KD and LeBron James is because that's the most stupidest thing to say
