Colin Cowherd: “The NBA has got a lot of talented players, but with 90% of the stars, it’s ‘talk’, it’s ‘hype’, it’s ‘just wait’, it’s promises and guarantees, and I get nothing. Some of the best players in the league like Harden, Westbrook, and maybe Paul George, their brands are ‘talented’, but they never really make it happen in the postseason. The most pressure in these playoffs is not on LeBron James. Stop with the promises, the hype, and the ‘just wait’, Giannis has been in the league for 7 years and he’s got two playoff series wins for his career, both in the East last year. You keep telling me, and promising me, and guaranteeing me – GIANNIS, GO AND WIN GAMES. LeBron and Kawhi left and KD is hurt. If Giannis doesn’t get to the Finals, he’s just another talented guy who has limitations and holes, and is not built to win in the postseason… You keep telling me that he’s the future of the league so WIN.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks Giannis Antetokounmpo has by far more pressure on him than any other player to finally reach an NBA Finals this, as Colin believes Giannis could fall in the Russell Westbrook, James Harden, and Paul George category of supremely talented stars who never win rings if he fails again in 2020.
Check out the video above as Colin details why the time is now for Giannis, and how he’s tired of waiting around for this supposed ‘budding’ phenom to pop who has already been in the league for 7 years and isn't some young and fleldging player anymore.
