Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors are no joke. But are they better than Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks?
Only one will emerge from the Eastern Conference finals. And barring an historic collapse out West, the Golden State Warriors will face one of them.
Interestingly, this time, the Warriors won’t have home-court advantage in the Finals. And given the uncertainty surrounding Kevin Durant’s return from a strained calf injury, they may not have Durant, either. So far, that hasn’t mattered. The Warriors have been every bit as good without Durant — and some might say even better.
But like the Warriors, the Bucks are on a different level. Antetokounmpo is a force and surrounded by teammates who understand their roles and play it well. The Bucks are athletic, deep and hungry.
Meanwhile, Leonard is perhaps the league’s most-underrated superstar. He has given the Warriors fits during his previous stop with the San Antonio Spurs, and appears plenty capable of doing it again.
So which East team would present the Warriors with a bigger challenge? Let us know in the poll below and leave your thoughts in the comments section at the bottom of this post.
