      You cannot compare two players from two different eras like that I suppose. Different training, nutrition and science in general behind players. A good question would be, was more dominant kg when he was in his prime or giannis this year?
      KG looked like a man among babies, i'll go with KG.

        Lol what? Dirk is clearly better than both of them because he won against big three by himself and he carried that mavs team to championship. Yet his ring is worth more than Snakes’s rings

              this is so disrespectful towards KG. Gianis is soft, and not in his prime yet. KG was a beast.

                      A bit early to have this conversation about Giannis. Jumpin' the shark ESPN.

                        Pip certainly likes Giannis game. But I think the main reason is because he reminds him of his self. There are lots of similarities there & I can recall his draft day when lots of analysts compared his game to Pips.

                          Well Giannis still a Baby he is not even in his prime right now he only 24. Give it until 27 or 28. Michael Jordan won his first championship when he was 28 I think. I think Giannis is going to develop to be the greatest of all time specially if they eliminate the warriors in the final this year.

                                            So when has there been a KG... when the league was real he started @t the 3 @7ft. Barkley,Bird,KG the only ones in 20 yrs. to average 20,10,5. Second best player was Wally Scerbiak for 5 years and was still getting 50 wins in the Wild West against Dirk,CWebb,Sheed, Malone, Barkley,BGrant,McDyess,Kemp, Plus made the way for these supermax contracts. Giannis is gonna be great but c'mon Bro he been hot for 3 years plus no competition in the East!!! These scary motherfuckers be running out Giannis way. Pip my second favorite player ever but he caught in the hype( just like when he said LeBron was better than Mike)!!!

                                                  We have to see Giannis' whole prime career before we can compare it to Garnett's

                                                    Giannis has not even reached his prime. My choice is inferred.

                                                      Prime KG, he had that jumper and did it in a big center era.

                                                                            • blackplaque617

KG went up against Duncan, Dirk, Webber, Shaq, Rasheed, Yao, Gasol and Stoudemire, all in their prime, on a nightly basis. Giannis can't fuck with KG plain and simple.

                                                                              • Maleek Hoffman

No denying we Never seen anybody like him But besides being less mobile (a little slower and less athletic) than Giannis, prime KG was BY FAR a more skilled player than Giannis is right now. At his best KG wasn’t as mobile or agile as Greek Freak but he was by far a more smooth scorer with more ways he could score ELITE post moves/ IQ and he was better defender than Giannis tbh. I agree this argument is too early considering we’re not even sure this is Giannis’ primes what if he does actually start knocking down his 3pt and mid range shooting at a consistent rate and adds a few more post moves 😬😭
