    You didnt just say this did you?

    From someone who watches every game and analyzes every game (since you want to establish "qualifications" for some reason), Dame does NOT have a better supporting cast than Milwaukee.

    In terms of top 2, maybe... but after that, definitely not.
    Bledsoe/Middleton/Brogdon/Mirotic/Lopez >>> McCollul/Nurkic/Kanter/Aminu/Curry

    Not sure where to put this, but Meyers just retweeted Conor McGregor, "If I told you how confident I was for the future, you wouldn’t believe me. But your belief is not needed."

    Literally makes me want to die by choking on my own vomit.

    His skillset is s fit. His injury prone tendencies are not.

    Yeah, I don't know. You left out Rodney for some reason.

    I think we match up well vs them.

    Don't forget, we beat them with their full compliment in Portland this season. Now, they had no Mirotic but we had no Kanter or Hood.

    It would be a great series that Kanter, Hood, and Curry would shine in.

    No, he's just mocking Lowry.

    lol no.
    But it certainly would explain his poor playoff performance over the years.

    Nah, theyll save money for AD in 2020. They may get one star like a Kemba, but I still dont think theyd be that good.

    Rodney is about as good as Curry. You can rotate anyone into that 5th spot.

    We beat them in one game? They also beat us by 43, and we're the best team in the NBA...

    I don't even know if you're arguing the offense that Giannis has a better supporting cast than Dame.

    His injury tendencies would make him cheaper to acquire, so his injury tendencies (which are still overstated) actually provide higher upside.
