Thank the fucking lord. People were talking about him in Dallas, GSW, Heat, etc - I don't want 2015-2018 again please.

Giannis always said he wanted to stay in Milwaukee, and I can't imagine how good it feels to know it wasn't just lip-service.
[–]Bucks iFinesseThePlug 709 指標 6小時前*
Such a relief to have him stay. He means the world to this team and the fans.
Plus we don't have to deal with the rumors and shit like this in every other Giannis thread.

I bet man. Unfortunately it'll be about him demanding a trade now. Donovan signed his max with us, and now it's just "first chance he gets he's out, just wanted the money".
[–]Hornets maleorderbride 130 指標 6小時前
Hey at least you guys actually signed the dude instead of lowballing him after he carried your franchise on his back for several years. Unlike some other small-market team which shall remain nameless.
[–]CIark725 指標 7小時前
Can’t believe he didn’t even wait for next year after 2 playoff exits like that. Truly loyal

dude came from nothing with his family and that’s it, that kinda upbringing teaches you the value of good people in your life

It teaches you the value of when you have slightly less than a quarter of a billion dollars in front of you, you take it

Straight facts he’d be foolish to turn that sort of money down. His family is set for generations.

This kind of money means his kids and grandkids can be massive fuckups and still be so rich it won't matter.

There it is folks. Congratulations to Milwaukee. The fan base deserves it. Now let's see if they can make deep playoff runs for the next 2-3 years.

[–]Raptors 6lackDino 67 指標 7小時前
I think we're pretty disappointed. A large part of the reason we didn't give Ibaka a longer term deal was because of 2021 free agency.
I'm not upset that we're not getting him (happy for Bucks) but sad that we've been so focused on 2021 as a franchise and may not get anything despite all that cap space. I hope OG balls out though.

Giannis on the mavs would have been fucking terrifying and unfair lol
[–][DAL] Steve Nash aceofspadez138 51 指標 7小時前
We were actually split in the sense that we would've obviously loved to have Giannis, but we also realize that he could be to the Bucks what Dirk was for us. So we're happy for the Bucks, and I personally hope he is a Buck for life.
Also, we beat a superteam in 2011 and winning that way is sweeter than winning with a stacked deck. So we welcome the challenge of winning while building around Luka.

Thank you Giannis. Now we don’t have to hear the media for a full season asking where you’re going. True MVP.
[–]Tampa Bay Raptors twistedlogicx 95 指標 7小時前
Small markets have taken a huge beating over the last several years. OKC losing Durant, AD forcing his way out of the Pelicans, PG forcing his way out of the Pacers, Kawhi forcing his way out of the Spurs, Heyward leaving the Jazz, Hornets losing Kemba (because of the ownership), etc, etc.
The Blazers seemed to be the only small market team that had die-hard superstars that they were able to keep. Nice to see another team join that list.

Elite maneuver by Giannis to wait until now to sign to prevent Miami, Toronto, Dallas, etc. from making any big signings this offseason

Many of the teams that missed out on Giannis are gonna be more aggressive
[–]Registered to Vote Sav10r 131 指標 7小時前
This is actually fantastic for you guys. A bunch of teams were aiming for the 2021 Free Agency class which is now mostly bare. Lebron, AD, Giannis, PG are all off the board and Kawhi doesn't seem likely to leave SoCal.....
Harden's by far the best available player now.
[–]TMGSC_Starlight 179 指標 6小時前
Jesus Christ, a franchise superstar..... DIDN'T just leave his team with absolutely nothing to ring chase in a big city?
What world are we living in?
My respect levels for Giannis just went up.

This is miles better than him going to Miami, GSW or one if the LA teams somehow. I'd rather get smacked by a small market squad than some big city super-megateam

I'm a Raptors fan that was hoping the memes were true but I'm happy for the Bucks that they weren't. Small market teams don't often get players of Giannis' caliber long-term and after they lost Kareem way back in the day, it's nice to see this happen.
Happy for Giannis too. Sorting this out now will remove all of the questions and media headaches he would have had all year long.
[–][MIL] Jabari Parker royalwarhawk 46 指標 7小時前
Going to be honest I was starting to get nervous... so glad he’s staying.
He defines an entire rise of an era for the Bucks, and I hope we can get him a championship so he can immortalize himself for the city.
[–]Lakers jlstjh 14 指標 7小時前
Honestly very happy for the Bucks. They’ll be contenders for the next 4 years guaranteed because of this and keeps the east interesting. Will be enjoying watching the east between nets, heat, bucks, 76ers, raptors duke it out the next few years.
