its uploaded on reddit... now that Giannis has taken the leap, and neither of Wiggins/Towns has really done much to improve, I gotta go with the Bucks

I like the Bucks pairing at the moment too.

They have length and athleticism and run the break so well.

KAT and Wiggy need to show me they can get stops and win games. all flash and no substance yet.

also, its not a huge sample yet, but Giannis is shooting 38% from 3 in December. It's like he took a leap in November and already a smaller leap

I personally think Wiggins is the difference , if he can stand up a little more, then the Wolves shall get the vote.

Tough question. Wiggins and Parker are meh, but Towns will be the top 1-2 center in the league for the next decade, and Giannis is the most gifted athlete with the potential to be the best 1-2-3 player on the court if he develops a consistent jumper.

Giannis has MVP potential. I don't see MVP potential in either Wiggins or Towns. Giannis is a generational talent IMO. I also think Parker will be a 22-8-4 guy which I don't see Wiggins ever being.

When all is said and done I think in terms of quality of career it will be Giannis --> Towns --> Parker --> Wiggins

Of the 42 votes, 60% selected Towns/Wiggins; however, most of the comments point to Giannis/Jabari. Let's hear from the majority on here!

I dunno if it's me or not, but throughout the years I watched NBA, an all-around guy always needs someone very dominate on scoring to win the Championship.
And the reason is very simple, you can't always score a lot and do a lot of things at the same time, if you really do, you'll gonna take mos to the shots to make it happen, and that will make you easily to guard, Parker is great this season , but it appears the Bucks still needs help to get to another level even with both Giannis and Parker playing well.

Centers are always harder to find, especially one all-around Center which is good on both offensive and defensive ends, which means everything is on Wiggins. If he can fullfill the expectation , then they'll become an unstoppable force.

I have left many comments about Wiggins not playing well enough in the past, but still he does have the potential to be the guy, and if he does, then the Wolves dual will get the vote.

We won't know yet. Whoever becomes perennial all stars and wins at least one championship is where LeBron will sign.

Then the other pair will sign with Golden State.

Khris Middleton is hurt and will help take pressure off both when he returns

I don't get this either. He's a better prospect than Wiggins right now.

This is Giannis first good year let's slow down on "MVP potential. Towns was great last year and is getting even better. Wiggins has his moments but he's gotten better each year and is a year behind Giannis. Bucks and Wolves are both lucky to have great talent. Bucks might reach playoffs before Wolves mainly do to a weaker conference but I think both teams are happy with the talent they have. As for the poll. I obviously picked Wolves because both guys have produced each year they played and (knock on wood) stayed healthy.,

Interesting Simmons article that ties into this discussion a bit. Has Giannis as his #1 trade value player in league. I'd give Giannis/Jabari the slight edge due to Giannis's ascension from the past 8 months.
