GAME THREAD: Milwaukee Bucks (46-26) @ Brooklyn Nets (48-24) - (June 07, 2021)
By - NBA_MOD
To dream, the impossible dream…..
Rumor is, Akumpo has to give his MVPs to KD now.
Just give 2019 to Harden and we are fine.
I'm Kevin Durant. Y'all know who I am.
This is your MVP?
Giannis, Middleton, Schroder, and Porzingis need to form a Suicide Squad type team lmao
This sounds incredibly dark... unless you're saying they're gonna be an awesome an unorthodox team to save the world?
Who's Katana in this team?
Haha nothing dark intended
don’t forget Randle
Billy King was actually playing 4d chess while Danny Ainge was playing Tic Tac Toe
Didn't King actually say something like that recently?
"UM ACTUALLY IT WAS COMPLETELY UNRELATED, THE TRADE WAS 10 YEARS AGO, THERE'S LITERALLY NO CONNECTION" - Celtics fans in your mentions soon
Go to Dallas Giannis
no I want Dallas to win one in the next couple years not get the #1 seed and then collectively shit their pants on live television in the 2nd round
Is the first round exit any better?
Giannis, Steph and Luka
will nba games ever start at the advertised time?
The Bucks were down by 49???? I skipped the rest of the game when the Nets went up 20.
KD was the muse for Slenderman
hope this one is a good one...
Complain about him all you want but KD is a HOF player
Big if true
I don’t think anyone would dispute that
lol no shit , why does this even need to be said ?
Justin Jackson +7 +/-
Middleton -30 +/-
Do you think the bucks unleash there secret weapon next game?
Worth a try.
Lol that’s terrible
Giannis probably needs a premier playmaker to make this work, cp3 maybe ? Deal khris and Lopez ? I dunno lol
There isn't any player movement. Yes, a playmaker would make a difference. But, no one is cutting. Settling for too many contested jump shots.
They need to add the option for coaches to throw in the towel like boxing
if all 5 starters type 'gg' the game is automatically over
Surrender vote starts when Giannis is at the freethrow line
It would certainly be enough time for everyone to get their votes in!
Giannis to the Blazers. Jrue to the Lakers. Middleton to China. Blow it up.
Bucks were losing this game no matter what, but why are Lopez and Tucker only playing 20-something minutes. Lopez is their best offensive mismatch and Tucker is their best defender on KD.
Tucker is also kind of nothing on offense. He just stands there, which is what he did in Houston but Harden would generate wide open looks for him.
Giannis and Jrue aren't the playmaker that Harden is and the gap is huge.
KD and kyrie will abuse Lopez in drop coverage , his offence doesn’t make up for the two best Brooklyn players making him look like a concrete parking post
They are abusing everybody though. At least make them work on the other end.
Tucker had two ghost fouls against Durant basically as soon as the game started.
Ah I missed the first couple minutes.
The coach don’t know what he’s doing
Pathetic effort from the Bucks. Giannis must be regretting signing the extension.
Can they fire Bud in the locker room yet?
Bud isn’t the problem. They have weaker second and third scorers than most elite teams and Giannis is the easiest elite player to scheme against.
Giannis is like the Deontay Wilder of basketball. Raw talent but no refinement of skills.
Wilder just has punching power, not even boxing talent.
For raw boxing talent but no refinement of skills, the analogy would be Prince Naseem
Prince was so much fun to watch. Just kept waiting for someone to absolutely wreck his cocky ass.
Who is the best player on the Nets? and why is it Joe Harris?
Everything about that broadcast was embarrassing. Glad KD embarrassed that dude
I like that players are beginning to ask "Is that a real question" to some of these but KD misdirected that one.
Dude asked if he was able to foresee that he would overcome a career-threatening injury to return to the peak performer that he is.
He’s right in that at this level you need that confidence and rarely will a player tell you they didn’t think they had it. But these interviews aren’t for revealing inner truths, they’re for your standard game quotes.
Right. I mean, look at Klay Thompson. You think he doesn't doubt he'll be the same player again?
I'm really really happy for the section of nets fans that stayed loyal throughout all the horrible teams of the 2010s. Good for you guys.
Thanks, man. Rooting for the Wolves to make it big next season. D’Lo will always be our guy and we want him to succeed there.
Thank you, Wolves Bro <3
Same dude that asked him last series if KD thought he could play good defense still after hurting his Achilles
Interview guy: did you wanna get back to how you were before injury
Kd: wtf is wrong with you no shit yes
That wasn’t even his question, be fair.
KD hugged his mom like 8 times.
its the source of his power
That’s the hug of someone who knows he just won the championship
Unlimited hugs are the best.
I could use one
He a mama’s boy. It is known.
8 times tho
They do be asking stupid ass questions
Didn’t realize Durant was such a douchebag
KD really knows how to handle the media imo
Is that a real statement?
In all fairness to the reporter, he couldn’t ask any questions about the game. Thanks bucks.
Holy shit, I assumed the game was over when I got the Funky Diabetic notification, didn't expect this. Come on Giannis, Middleton, and Jrue isn't the same as Nets Big 3, but this isn't it.
Y'all ever watch a game and then realize that CJ Mcollum is incredibly disappointing?
So many ways to spell Kristaps Porzingis
Ah yes! Way to waste a generational talent by giving him the least effect #2 option! I feel yah Dallas
He’s trying Jennifer
You need a hug too?
I can't accurately express how much I do
Is that a real question??! Lmao KD. that could pretty much be the answer to every Pre/ in/ and post game question btw.
What was the question that KD said was stupid Lmaao
Reporter asked him about "returning to being THIS good" after his injury two years ago. Felt like KD was being a dick.
"Its been 2 years since your injury, Did you ever think you'd be this good again"
Did you expect to be this good again after your injury two years ago
Two years ago after his injury did he think he would ever play this well. Goofy as hell
"fuck out of here with that hoe ass question" - Durant
A 40 point beatdown by the Nets on the Bucks, I did NOT expect that, the Bucks literally never showed up from start to finish if they are swept the organization will need to have a very very serious look at themselves and what they are trying to achieve in the playoffs
I think that depends on how the Nets play from here out. It could just be the case that they were the first of three teams to run straight into the buzzsaw that is the meshed Nets, and they've just got to hope two of them get injured next year.
Really happy Durant embrace being the slim reaper
kd weirdly relatable there
he's probably the biggest shitposter in the NBA.
most relatable to redditors except for the fact that he can run for more than 5 minutes at a time
🚨 Woj reporting Nets are being investigated for manslaughter
Lol 'Is that a real question?'
Lmao you just expect shitty interviews with KD now.
Shit I didn't hear what did he ask KD?
How it's been 2 years since the injury and whether KD thought he'd get back to being this good
"Its been 2 years since you injured your calf, did you ever expect to be this good?"
"did you expect to be so good even after the calf injury"
KD is the best player in the world
KD alone is enough with this bucks team
Giannis regrets re-signing
Kevin "Is that a real question" Durant
i actually respect that kd
what happened wsa not watching
LOL dumb ass fucking question. What goofy ass dude asked Durant that question?
KD just loves basketball. It would’ve killed him to never win a ring that’s why he joined the Warriors
Congrats to the NBA Champs of 2021, the Nets!
*wins by 40 “we have a long way to go”
Must win by ♾️
Lmao I mean what can he say? "Yeah, we're totally meshed and firing on all cylinders, we're going to whoop their ass again in Milwaukee."
he wouldn’t be lying lol
KD was like "is u stupid"
How tf have there only been 16 FTs in this game??? (Also love that 9 of them have by an Antetokounmpo)
KD looking real comfortable in the post-game interview with the hoodie look
KD is hilarious lmao
Oh wow that was a smack down. Without harden too.
I see Giannis forcing himself out once he turns 28
not the lakers, plz. that storyline is getting repetitive
We have no assets for him but I can see him going to a big market team tho
My dream was he didn't sign with the Bucks and signed with Atlanta instead. Probably would've been unstoppable.
Lmao KD couldn't believe that shit question
I only heard the answer and missed the question, what was it?
"did you ever think you'd be this good?" (he brought up 2 years since KD injured his calf)
Thanks friend, yeah reporter deserves KD laughing in his face a little bit for that one lol
Jared Greenberg sucks
KD with a goat answer.
Durant lookin like a giant black ET.
They finally took off their masks during these interviews
pretty sure that hijabi lady is running for office in brooklyn. forgot what for
Court side seats gotta be some kind of campaign finance violation.
doesn't look like she was sitting courtside from her twitter post
i love kyrie, he's so wholesome. he says stupid shit but gets too much hate lol.
He’s generally good for multiple dumb sound bites per off season so the hate seems pretty appropriate tbh. I’m also not sure what he’s ever done to be wholesome.
Kyrie's heart is in the right place, his narcissism isn't enough to warrant death threats
Sure, he absolutely doesn’t deserve death threats. But he’s also not a wholesome dude.
He is a bit weird but genuinely a good dude
The one positive of playing teams like the Durant Warriors and the Durant Nets is knowing there was absolutely nothing you can do to beat them.
I like seeing how often KD hugs his mom.
I would say this is buds last straw but he's had like 5
KD shut that down real quick lol
Moral victory for the Bucks not to lose by 50..
Is kd cold ?
Chiozza playoff legend.
Man...KD is so fucking good at basketball.
Has a coach ever been fired *during* a playoff series?
E.T. phone home
The only shot Bucks have is for Lana Rhoades to seduce and fuck Kyrie, driving a rift between KD and Kyrie that fractures the team from within.
No way. They’ll just double team her only making their bond that much stronger.
Dame and Giannis need to force their way out from their poverty franchises otherwise they ain't ever winning a ring.
Lol, Giannis should play better before go down that road
Giannis does not have the skill to be the #1 guy on a championship team, his game is still too raw this many years later. no jumpshot, no post up game, bad at the line. even Shaq was good at the post
who's playing with food
Kostsas still the only champion Antetokoumpo
Yo it's MVP Mama Durant
This is Jason Witten/Booger McFarland bad. TNT, it’s not too late. You can send Marv and Grant on an early vacation. Give us anyone else.
I hope the ratings continue to crash and Adam Copper gets fired.
Adam Platinum is the GOAT
What happened? Why that’s funny?
Kyrie is Muslim no? I assume that's his gf or wife
Nets out here doing it for Kidd
Been a Net Since Kidd.
only the Hawks and Nets have lost 1 game this post season. lol that's wild
"The stadium is going crazy! At least 4 of the Nets 17 fans are on their feet and cheering!"
Marv trying to hype up the Nets
Why is Antetokounmpo still playing?
I just want to say I respect that you took the time to type that shit out. I would never.
He's Giannis' nephew lol
Who is Kyrie talking to
She’s a candidate for Manhattan DA
I want Giannis to be interviewed if they get swept and talk about being the food! lmao
broke: crowd leaving early because home team is down 30 in the 4th
woke: crowd leaving early because home team is up 50 in the 4th
KD looking like a Sith Lord with his hoodie up
Harden is not coming back this series.
Harden needs to sit this entire series and rehab as much as possible
ayyy there's the real mvp
