To dream, the impossible dream…..


Useful-Throat-6671

Rumor is, Akumpo has to give his MVPs to KD now.


kenkanoni

Just give 2019 to Harden and we are fine.


whospepesilvia

yup


rossoroni21

I'm Kevin Durant. Y'all know who I am.


BrokenManOfSamarkand

This is your MVP?


SuddenDeathWish

Giannis, Middleton, Schroder, and Porzingis need to form a Suicide Squad type team lmao


KDtrey5isGOAT

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?


SuddenDeathWish

Haha nothing dark intended


madelins

don’t forget Randle


BOBANYPC

and cj


chiddy-bang

Billy King was actually playing 4d chess while Danny Ainge was playing Tic Tac Toe


avuhcahdoe

Didn't King actually say something like that recently?


nxgga_wzrd

"UM ACTUALLY IT WAS COMPLETELY UNRELATED, THE TRADE WAS 10 YEARS AGO, THERE'S LITERALLY NO CONNECTION" - Celtics fans in your mentions soon


midgetporn2

Go to Dallas Giannis


durktrain

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


Flaboogles

Is the first round exit any better?


throwaway1643

Giannis, Steph and Luka


SkyFoo

will nba games ever start at the advertised time?


Jared_Rollins

Nope


ichinii

The Bucks were down by 49???? I skipped the rest of the game when the Nets went up 20.


Trifonas-Kaoulla

KD was the muse for Slenderman


SkyFoo

hope this one is a good one...


captain_flintlock

Complain about him all you want but KD is a HOF player


durktrain

Big if true


Zee_WeeWee

BOLD


Bilbo211

I don’t think anyone would dispute that


Cellar_door_1234

lol no shit , why does this even need to be said ?


rossoroni21

Justin Jackson +7 +/- Middleton -30 +/- Do you think the bucks unleash there secret weapon next game?


discreteviewer

Worth a try.


marcdale92

Lol that’s terrible


Cellar_door_1234

Giannis probably needs a premier playmaker to make this work, cp3 maybe ? Deal khris and Lopez ? I dunno lol


ReapYerSoul

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.


SuddenDeathWish

They need to add the option for coaches to throw in the towel like boxing


desmedt29

if all 5 starters type 'gg' the game is automatically over


8u11etpr00f

Surrender vote starts when Giannis is at the freethrow line


ReapYerSoul

It would certainly be enough time for everyone to get their votes in!


jonnysnowballs

Giannis to the Blazers. Jrue to the Lakers. Middleton to China. Blow it up.


SPAREustheCUTTER

Please.


orwll

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.


Niceguydan8

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.


Cellar_door_1234

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


orwll

They are abusing everybody though. At least make them work on the other end.


Saiser-Kose

Tucker had two ghost fouls against Durant basically as soon as the game started.


orwll

Ah I missed the first couple minutes.


marcdale92

The coach don’t know what he’s doing


lukslopes

Pathetic effort from the Bucks. Giannis must be regretting signing the extension. Can they fire Bud in the locker room yet?


Zee_WeeWee

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.


DaveCSparty

Giannis is like the Deontay Wilder of basketball. Raw talent but no refinement of skills.


throwaway1643

Wilder just has punching power, not even boxing talent. For raw boxing talent but no refinement of skills, the analogy would be Prince Naseem


staatsclaas

Prince was so much fun to watch. Just kept waiting for someone to absolutely wreck his cocky ass.


LeathaLurker

Who is the best player on the Nets? and why is it Joe Harris?


avuhcahdoe

Bruce Brown*

does_taxes

Everything about that broadcast was embarrassing. Glad KD embarrassed that dude


Seastep

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.


PyrrhosKing

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.


Seastep

Right. I mean, look at Klay Thompson. You think he doesn't doubt he'll be the same player again?


ghost91372

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.


MaximusBluntus

Appreciate you.


yoonchae

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.


DoNotAskMeMyNickname

Thank you, Wolves Bro <3


ghost91372

<3


omgomgwtflol

Same dude that asked him last series if KD thought he could play good defense still after hurting his Achilles


somebodygetmemymoney

Interview guy: did you wanna get back to how you were before injury Kd: wtf is wrong with you no shit yes


PyrrhosKing

That wasn’t even his question, be fair.


smoothtaste

KD hugged his mom like 8 times.


desmedt29

its the source of his power


Tinder4Boomers

That’s the hug of someone who knows he just won the championship


MucusShotSwaGGins

Unlimited hugs are the best.


smoothtaste

I could use one


Philip22Kings

He a mama’s boy. It is known.


smoothtaste

8 times tho


Kn7ght

They do be asking stupid ass questions


TheArizonaTexan

Didn’t realize Durant was such a douchebag


rossoroni21

Wtf?


Infraready

KD really knows how to handle the media imo


keinemehrhippy

Is that a real statement?


lupe2012

In all fairness to the reporter, he couldn’t ask any questions about the game. Thanks bucks.


Heyec

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.


LeathaLurker

Y'all ever watch a game and then realize that CJ Mcollum is incredibly disappointing?


ronygah

So many ways to spell Kristaps Porzingis


LeathaLurker

Ah yes! Way to waste a generational talent by giving him the least effect #2 option! I feel yah Dallas


NourFinn

He’s trying Jennifer


Philip22Kings

You need a hug too?


LeathaLurker

I can't accurately express how much I do


TigerGOAT1

Is that a real question??! Lmao KD. that could pretty much be the answer to every Pre/ in/ and post game question btw.


its_ya_boi_Dotard

What was the question that KD said was stupid Lmaao


Seastep

Reporter asked him about "returning to being THIS good" after his injury two years ago. Felt like KD was being a dick.


Bladex20

"Its been 2 years since your injury, Did you ever think you'd be this good again"


Cocomale

Did you expect to be this good again after your injury two years ago


tarantquarantino

Two years ago after his injury did he think he would ever play this well. Goofy as hell


ManufacturerOk3222

"fuck out of here with that hoe ass question" - Durant


Zennon246

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


XXXTentachyon

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.


Pretend_LunchHour

Really happy Durant embrace being the slim reaper


WhaleSexOdyssey

kd weirdly relatable there


desmedt29

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


SuddenDeathWish

🚨 Woj reporting Nets are being investigated for manslaughter


desmedt29

Lol 'Is that a real question?'


Festibowl

Lmao you just expect shitty interviews with KD now.


Discord_Show

Shit I didn't hear what did he ask KD?


misoamane

How it's been 2 years since the injury and whether KD thought he'd get back to being this good


BloodOfTitus

"Its been 2 years since you injured your calf, did you ever expect to be this good?"


towels_equal_happy

"did you expect to be so good even after the calf injury"


smokegrasseatass69

KD is the best player in the world


eerkbit

KD alone is enough with this bucks team


Ikolkyo

Giannis regrets re-signing


karltee

Kevin "Is that a real question" Durant


WhaleSexOdyssey

i actually respect that kd


thedaftfool

what happened wsa not watching


ichinii

LOL dumb ass fucking question. What goofy ass dude asked Durant that question?


Notorious6

Greenberg


dAMn6942069

KD just loves basketball. It would’ve killed him to never win a ring that’s why he joined the Warriors


cHinzoo

Congrats to the NBA Champs of 2021, the Nets!


yaboy_matt

*wins by 40 “we have a long way to go”


LearningToTradeIHope

Must win by ♾️


XXXTentachyon

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."


yaboy_matt

he wouldn’t be lying lol


Bladex20

KD was like "is u stupid"


IronMikeBison

How tf have there only been 16 FTs in this game??? (Also love that 9 of them have by an Antetokounmpo)


addem67

KD looking real comfortable in the post-game interview with the hoodie look


waterulookinat

KD is hilarious lmao


thedonjefron69

Oh wow that was a smack down. Without harden too.


livinglife28

I see Giannis forcing himself out once he turns 28


desmedt29

not the lakers, plz. that storyline is getting repetitive


livinglife28

We have no assets for him but I can see him going to a big market team tho


ichinii

My dream was he didn't sign with the Bucks and signed with Atlanta instead. Probably would've been unstoppable.


voldemortscore

Lmao KD couldn't believe that shit question


Ecchi_Sketchy

I only heard the answer and missed the question, what was it?


voldemortscore

"did you ever think you'd be this good?" (he brought up 2 years since KD injured his calf)


Ecchi_Sketchy

Thanks friend, yeah reporter deserves KD laughing in his face a little bit for that one lol


JustClampIt1819

Jared Greenberg sucks


ghost91372

Hoodie KD


jcfan4u

KD with a goat answer.


mkmore4

Durant lookin like a giant black ET.


dreamerx03

They finally took off their masks during these interviews


foldedpotatochip

pretty sure that hijabi lady is running for office in brooklyn. forgot what for


gtpin

Manhattan DA


DaveCSparty

Court side seats gotta be some kind of campaign finance violation.


foldedpotatochip

doesn't look like she was sitting courtside from her twitter post


towels_equal_happy

i love kyrie, he's so wholesome. he says stupid shit but gets too much hate lol.


Zee_WeeWee

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.


towels_equal_happy

Kyrie's heart is in the right place, his narcissism isn't enough to warrant death threats


Zee_WeeWee

Sure, he absolutely doesn’t deserve death threats. But he’s also not a wholesome dude.


lupe2012

He is a bit weird but genuinely a good dude


davey_mann

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.


Champloon

Darth Durant


misoamane

I like seeing how often KD hugs his mom.


ghost91372

I would say this is buds last straw but he's had like 5


voldemortscore

KD shut that down real quick lol


MetsJetsNetsallday

Moral victory for the Bucks not to lose by 50..


indian_hannibal

Is kd cold ?


TheMightySloth

Ice cold


indian_hannibal

Indesd


FlowersForBergeron

Chiozza playoff legend.


LeathaLurker

Man...KD is so fucking good at basketball.


Garfield-1-23-23

Has a coach ever been fired *during* a playoff series?


bordss

E.T. phone home


anuhobo

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.


JayPunk27

No way. They’ll just double team her only making their bond that much stronger.


simsontrack

Dame and Giannis need to force their way out from their poverty franchises otherwise they ain't ever winning a ring.


KATsordogs

Lol, Giannis should play better before go down that road


Quatro_Leches

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


[deleted]

who's playing with food


ReturnOfDaSnack420

Kostsas still the only champion Antetokoumpo


GirlsLastTour

Yo it's MVP Mama Durant


does_taxes

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.

MucusShotSwaGGins

Kyrie is Muslim no? I assume that's his gf or wife


riazzledazzle

FistPunch_Vol_4

Been a Net Since Kidd.

only the Hawks and Nets have lost 1 game this post season. lol that's wild


Dawk320

"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


BAorBeGone

Why is Antetokounmpo still playing?


snowdope

I just want to say I respect that you took the time to type that shit out. I would never.


hitchhiker87

He's Giannis' nephew lol


SouthCoach

Who is Kyrie talking to


gtpin

She’s a candidate for Manhattan DA


SolivenInc

his handlers


cuttino_mowgli

I want Giannis to be interviewed if they get swept and talk about being the food! lmao


Seref15

i_am_bartman

KD looking like a Sith Lord with his hoodie up


atlfirsttimer

Harden is not coming back this series.


LeauxFi

Harden needs to sit this entire series and rehab as much as possible


desmedt29

ayyy there's the real mvp
