Without Giannis Antetokounmpo, the league would be in disarray. following the way the Milwaukee Bucks season ended, the whole NBA is keeping a close eye on his position following his recent cryptic remark about feeling disrespected.

Giannis has more than earned the right to be regarded as a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and his status as such would make any deal involving him difficult. NBA players, though, always seem to get their way.

The Bucks may feel pressure to reduce costs due to their new ownership and the likelihood that they would exceed the luxury tax threshold if they re-sign Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez. If that’s the case, then we should focus on these three groups.

3. Memphis Grizzlies

One should expect the Memphis Grizzlies’ trademark defensive tenacity and toughness from a team on the rise. However, they do not have another shutdown defender that can be relied on in the clutch.

The Grizzlies have a lot of draft picks and promising young players, and they are said to be going all out to get another superstar to play with Ja Morant.

2. Miami Heat

While the NBA trade deadline came and went, Pat Riley was unable to make a deal. There’s little chance of that happening again, and he may not even notice until he strengthens his team.

The Miami Heat advanced far in the playoffs this year despite the absence of anybody else who could be considered a franchise player save Jimmy Butler. Suppose what they might do with the game’s top two-way player on their side.

1. New York Knicks

Ever since Carmelo Anthony departed, the New York Knicks have been looking for another superstar to lead the club. It has been said that they have been monitoring Giannis for years and that they are now his preferred destination, according to speculations and rumors.

The Knicks have it all: the ideal sports town, the most money, the most draft selections, the most fans, and the most history. We’ve heard this tale before, but maybe they’ll really be able to pull it off this time.
