      Giannis aint leaving until the current run with Middleton and Dame run its course.

    This panel is dope. A lil push back in a non combative manner would work well. Like when Steven questioned perk on PG moving without the ball. Leglar explained it away by providing a great example, basically answering the question.

    Problem is Bucks can’t trade and receive a similar salary due to them being in the 2nd apron, they cant be involved in any sign and trades with other 2nd apron teams, they can’t sign anyone to a mid level due to the 2nd apron, only vet minimums. They would have to get real crafty in 3 team trades to take back picks and probably a really young rookie contract type player. Whats the market for that? And what team would actually want middleton in that case. Lopez they might be able to move but i don’t think moving Middleton will land them of anyone significant due to the Bucks salary and 2nd apron rules.

    Letting dru holiday walk for Dame was a dumb move for the bucks no to mention hiring doc rivers to replace the previous coach!

    Khris Middleton & Brooke are getting old. I would trade Khris.

    I hope Giannis is giving Jon Horst nightmares when he’s sleeping because Jon keeps drafting all of these wings & guards and then burying them at the end of the bench when Brooke and Khris are getting old. Khris is just getting too old and injury prone to get another 100+ million dollar contract. And they don’t seem to have Brookes long term replacement

    I feel like I was the only person in the world saying it was a horrible trade with the bucks did. Not just because Holiday ended up going to the Celtics. Only because they traded so much. Just for one player who is not even in his young 20s. He’s older now. Just think about trading him for holiday. I think there’s like a seven point difference on who scores more but holiday is a 10 times better defender and already proven to win a championship. You gave up your future literally for an older player. It made no sense to me. I even said it at the time go back and watch all the videos when it happened. I’m sure you’ll see a few of my comments, saying how bad of a trade that was. In three years, Giannis might leave he will probably be gone and then you won’t even have any pics. Your team is going to be horrible in a few years. Will probably get injured again next season most of the season because he’s getting older

    The Bucks have almost no wiggle room. Their cap space situation is a disaster. What no one seems to be talking about is that GIANNIS put the Bucks in this position.

    Hire Thanasis as a special assistant, but all these years taking up a roster spot? That’s on GIANNIS.

    Middleton is being paid like LeBron James but he’s never been more than a support role, with moments of taking the lead. Now he is even less. Why didn’t he get traded or made to take a pay cut? That’s on GIANNIS.

    I like that the Bucks went out and got Lillard. He should have been the perfect compliment to Giannis. But it’s not working out? Why? Because Middleton’s friendship meant more than doing what was best for the team. I hated that the Bucks traded Holiday instead of Middleton. To make things worse, the Bucks got so little for Holiday. Why? GIANNIS put that pressure on the Bucks to make a move, make it now, and made it public. That killed the Bucks from a negotiation standpoint. That’s on GIANNIS.

    GIANNIS has put the Bucks in a terrible position with his passive aggressive public barbs. He forced the Bucks to make immediate deals that hurt the future of this team with his threats to leave the team. This reminds me a lot of Le Bron James and his manipulation with the Cavaliers. Players who do this to teams are not team players. Giannis could have handled things so much better to help the Bucks make SMART moves.

    I don’t see the Bucks winning the title again and I see Giannis pulling a James on the Bucks. Sad as it is to say, the Bucks best move if trying to build for the future, is to trade Giannis for a killer deal that gets them top players and tons of 1st round unprotected picks as far out as possible. Otherwise, this team will implode. Giannis will cry for a trade. Bucks will get little for him in order to appease him. Stop trying to appease him! Players who pretend to be GMs hurt their teams.

    Oh, and Giannis, you can’t shoot. At least make your free throws. You talk about dedication and expecting it of those around you, but you can’t shoot free throws and with your style of play, missing free throws is a MAJOR FLAW in your game. The team cannot depend on you at the end of close games and I stress PLAYOFF games. You should be throwing 300 free throws after every practice when you are most tired until you can make them in your sleep.

    The bucks went 18-20 with Doc and in the 10 games leading up to the giannis got hurt they were 3-7 on a 4 game losing streak
