Definitely didn't look like the second best in the NBA tonight.

I wasn't aware of how much help he gets from the officials in terms of getting away with charges. He literally was just running over people tonight

Giannis is a one-trick pony. I see how Miami easily disposed of them last season.


Giannis is young Lebron without the passing ability


yeah, without that passing, it's so easy to shut him down. Also, at least Lebron took jumpers every now and then as compared to Giannis who just wants to take it to the hoop all the time.

If the lakers didn’t shoot like 55% from the 3, we’d be in a world of trouble this game

God, I can’t watch DS as the starter for the next 4 years. Hope Rob looks at his games vs. better teams before offering Max money.

Yeah, I mean most KCP 3s are open, I understand, but the lebron ones are pretty low percentage.

Lebron should take Giannis' MVP trophy on the way out.

I remember Lebron was actually quite a good shooter when he entered the league, when he was still relatively lanky (for his standards) lol

Lebron was still a better shooter at that age... I would remember Lebron will go on a tear just outside alone.

Lebron is a SF, what Giannis is missing is a go to post move. You can’t just rush into the lane every time. Sure nobody can block him, but teams can draw charges

Giannis fouled out for the first time this year and had his lowest free throw attempt total of the season.

Lebron was pretty good from mid-range, but his 3pt shot pretty much sucked...
after he'd been in the league for a while, he hired a full time shooting coach to help him with his 3. Kept that coach for 2 full seasons.

Lakers win 113-106. Second half a bit more of a "slog" as D's played a bit better. Lakers kept Bucks under 50 in second half, and gave up no 30+ point quarters after the 1st.

3 point shooting really was the key, lakers 19-37 (over 50%); Bucks were not as hot at all.

Interior D, however, is apparently an issue. Gave 58 points in the paint. It's very hit and miss and not a team strength, that's what this game tell us IMO.

Lakers otherwise won this one, their first real "statement" win of the year.

Giannis is way overrated. Him and AD would be horrible pair. both not good at passing/3 pt shooting and they both play inside the paint a lot.

Lebron would have won or gone to multiple finals already if he had that same Bucks team.
