    Fear the Deer!

    What a performance by Bucks. Genuinely the most exciting team in the NBA right now. I just hope that when Bucks, Blazers and Sixers dominate the NBA in 3-5 years people remember that I liked all three teams in 2016 and 2017 when they were largely average.

    Future is so bright for them. Giannis is 22, I fear to think what he's going to become when he's 26-28. Jabari will come back and get better too and Maker looks like he has serious upside too. They've almost sorted their backcourt with a second round pick Brogdon (he's still some distance away though). A bit of a shame that they will find it nigh on impossible to move into top 10 of the draft because if they could get someone like Fox, Nitlikina and Smith in, they'd actually be sorted in ALL positions for the future. And so freaking exciting to watch! The way I get excited about them these days I almost feel like I am cheating on Blazers.

    Is the Greek Freak really that good?

    Yes. He blocked a shot with his elbow tonight. When LeBron retires, Antetokounmpo will be new king.

    If he starts leading his team deep into the playoffs I'll become a believer..right now I'm not sure he's more than just a freak. LeBron is on a different level

    Of course LeBron is better. He's also 9 years older and more experienced. Giannis is 22.

    He's an absolute monster of a player. Probably a top 10 NBA player right now and should soon be top 5, quite comfortably. He doesn't need to lead his team deep into playoffs yet, he has time (so has the team, Middleton and Parker are still young, Maker and Brogdon are rookies).

    Prokorov is selling 49% of his Nets shares... or trying to. Why in gods name would you invest in this team if you weren't the majority owner?

    Damn that's huge. Fortunately for the bulls they won the first two, but if I'm a Celtics fan I'm feeling pretty optimistic right now.

    Fun watching the fans come out for the first playoff appearance in a while. You can tell these Jazz fans are glad to have playoff basketball back in Utah.
