KD vs. Giannis is the Most Significant Matchup in the NBA
KD VS. GIANNIS IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT MATCHUP IN THE NBA
KD is on a mission, and wants to prove that he can win outside a Golden State team who were already proven winners without him, and Giannis is still looking to solidify himself as a champion. Antetokounmpo has won consecutive MVPs, and wants to prove that he is a winner. If the season ended today, these two teams would be set for an epic second-round matchup in the East, where only one of them would be able to accomplish their goals.
A playoff matchup between Giannis and KD has much more implications than just the team that would advance to the next round. Both of them would have the opportunity to show who the best player in the league is right now (with LeBron saying he’ll never be 100% again), and even who the possible best team in the league is. It also has lasting impacts on the future, where they could cement their legacies, or even put themselves higher in the GOAT debate.
