First of all, shame on whoever left Kawhi off their top 5 list this offseason.

Giannis and Kawhi are playing rather godly right now in the east.

1.) Who is the superior player? (King of the East)
2.) Who is playing better currently in this young season?
3.) Which player would you rather have locked up for the next 8 years?

1 Kawhi
2 Kawhi
3 Giannis but only because there are concerns about Kawhi's health

Pretty much this. I would also add that Giannis would be the best player in the league if he had a jumpshot.

I would say Giannis over Kawhi

Kawhi is better. He's much smarter and more refined (as a shooter, playmaker, defender and ISO scorer). The game is extremely easy to him and he simply understands how to player a higher level.

That said I do think Giannis will pass him at some point so if roll the dice with the younger, healthier player to build around for 8 years.

I gotta give the edge to Vaginas ATM. i'm not convinced he's really a winner yet but until Kawhi plays more than 2 out of 3 games I can't declare him back.

I'll take Kawhi because he's a bit more proven but it's close. Kawhi's defense and shooting puts him above Giannis for me.

It all comes down to whose team ends up winning the East

Giannis been average so far most of this season and plenty of turn overs. Yet got player of the week and like top 5 MVP candidate. Bucks still need a big trade or two yet. Our back court is putrid. Not crazy over Bledsoe,Brogdon combo at all.

Bledsoe is a expiring contract so some teams may want him. Hes friends with LeBron. He may bolt to Lakers next summer for one year deal maybe if Lakers miss out on other stars. Brogdon will be RFA. He's at peak value on rookie contract. Who knows what he'll fetch next summer. Hes to slow footed to play starting PG and so so SG. I like Brogdon his rookie season but he leveled off now. He is what he is. Or Rozier could be a 3 team deal. Rozier and filler to Wolves Butler to Celtics and Teague to Suns. Many other moving pieces need to be included for salaries. Maybe picks as well.

Now this is a 3 team trade I can get behind

I was told by a certain Bucks fan that Giannis's shot was fixed? Looks like he is still a terrible shooter?

over 30% of his attempts this year are dunks. At some point, he needs to learn how to shoot the damn ball, or he will basically be a bigger Westbrook, who falls off a cliff when his athleticism runs dry.

Exactly why its Embiid right now. Once KL is back to consistently playing its all his but the Raps are so deep they havent even missed a beat when hes out.

Raptors in the Finals if Kawhi stays healthy.

Thats exactly why they keep resting him, trying to keep him fresh and healthy I guess. If raps keep winning when KL rests then expect to keep seeing KL rest more often.

Yeah he really would be. His ability to drive and finish is second to none.

Giannis shot is worse but if you compare him to Ben, it's ridiculously good. Ben is shooting 8% in midrange or further shots. He's the worst shooting guard in the league by far.

Once Kawhi is fully healthy it'll be him but for now it's Embeast then Giannis.

eh he needs to play still to keep in rhythm and have chemistry with the team. they didnt trade for him to sit him all the time.

Kawhi be resting because they want him healthy and at 100 percent but the man has a sore foot

Kawhi easily.

Giannis is the more sexy pick.

Kawhi might only be in the East for a year so at least Giannis can take it next year (unless someone goes to NY).

Henson hit more threes these couple games then Simmon's entire career.

I have to agree. He needs to show the same game in the playoffs but right now I think he is the best player in the East
