Dumb Giannis Take of the Day: Clippers To Pursue Deal For Giannis
I feel bad for The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor. He wrote one of the best Bucks’ end-of-season columns. I gave him shit for calling Bam Adebayo ‘Giannis’ nightmare’, but he is a damn good writer. He got himself aggregated today. Not like that is anything new for a guy like KOC, but it is still annoying for anyone to deal with that. In his Giannis’ column he writes about the Los Angeles Clippers are a potential suitor for Giannis and Antetokounmpo admires the way Doc Rivers’ coaches. All of that is fine and good. But RealGM aggregates that to the headline above which isn’t entirely accurate. See below. Here’s O’Connor’s excellent column if you’re curious.

The idea that RealGM puts out this headline versus ‘Milwaukee is the favorite to land Giannis with potential suitors like Clippers, Warriors, Heat’ is very convenient for the RealGM boys here. Also, the idea that a deal can happen this offseason is disingenuous on their part. No commentary on 2021, rather, this is something that will happen this offseason versus the next one. As I said on Twitter, I look forward to all the Instagram artists creating their shitty Photoshops of Giannis wearing a Clippers jersey. They cannot even put him next to Kawhi Leonard whose contract runs out in 2021.
This will be a blog theme for a while until the Giannis news calms down.
