And Lebron has thrown tantrums in recent years that he needs at least two other all stars with him, and has gotten it thus far except this season.

So for Giannis to do this, by himself, as the sole legitimate all star, would be amazing!
That is if they get past the Raps, I think they will, but GSW in 6 in the finals.

To put things in perspective, the last time a team won the finals with just one legitimate all star was in 2011, with Dirk's Mavericks. The fashionable thing to do since then is for guys to team up.
If Bucks win then there would many first. Got swept last year in the first round if I am not mistaken. That is a huge jump.


Yeah, Miami started the trend of Super team Bron, Wade, Bosh (3 all stars) + good roll players Haslam and Co.
