Justin Kubatko: Giannis Antetokounmpo tallied at least 30 points and 10 rebounds in each of the last five games of the 2021 ECS. Antetokounmpo is the first player to record at least five such games in a row in a single playoff series since Shaquille O’Neal in the 2000 NBA Finals. pic.twitter.com/NeBtfLklzL
Chase Hughes: Giannis Antetokounmpo is heading to his 2nd conference finals already at 26 years old. MJ didn’t do that until he was 27. Jordan was 28 when he won his 1st title, so was Shaq. LeBron and Steph were 27. Despite the narrative, Giannis is at worst on schedule for an all-time great.

According to NBA insider Marc J. Spears, the 31-year-old point guard will most likely be moved by the Thunder. He thinks that the Los Angeles Lakers should try to get him. Spears also revealed that Kyle Kuzma appears to be leaving the 2020 NBA champions. “Man, I can’t see Kemba playing there. If I’m the Lakers, man, why not try to go after Kemba. To me it makes a lot of sense. Kuzma already looks like he’s on his way out,” Spears said on ESPN’s The Jump.
