    Who would you take: Kawhi Leonard or Giannis Antetokounmpo?

    We're talking about for the next ten years and you had a choice to build over one player.

    I'd gamble on Giannis, he can do more things

    Giannis because he plays for the Bucks.

    that's actually a tough question, simply due to age.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I know it, but Giannis is nearly 5 years younger...

    To build for the next 10 years, I would probably lean him. For the next 5? Leonard

    Really, really tough. I picked Giannis, though. If Kawhi was a bit more LeBron-esque with his passing ability I might've picked him.

    Five? It's about three and a half years. Leonard is 25-181d and Giannis is 22-021d. So, 3-160d is the difference.

    Anyway, this is close but I'll take Leonard at this moment.

    On the flip...Leonard has somehow gotten better every single year. I mean how is that even possible? What's sad about that is we tend to forget how far Leonard has come.

    I kinda agree with your thinking on the time frames. But I take Leonard even over the next 10 in a hairline edge.

    I think where these two differentiate is shooting.

    When you go out from right at the rim Giannis is very shakey as a shooter, and through his career he hasn't constantly improved:

    Meanwhile you look at Kwahi and go out from the rim and he's very improved, and has leveled a bit this year, but is lightyears ahead of Giannis:

    On top of that Leonard has less blocks, but makes up the difference in steals. He has less turnovers with a higher usage.

    I really want to see Giannis challenged to learn to shoot. I think Kidd caters too much to Giannis at the rim and isn't maximizing what Giannis could be.
