Colin Cowherd explains why he believes Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks are the NBA’s next dynasty
We haven’t heard too much talk about this, so we’ll start. Can everybody please give Giannis Antetokounmpo his damn flowers?
Throughout this season, and even though parts of the playoffs, you had people doubting this man’s greatness. Even at the very start of this regular season, you had analysts like Stephen A. Smith questioning his drive, and will to win a championship. And more than anything, many exclaimed that his style would always shatter in the postseason.
Fast forward to today, and Giannis Antetokounmpo has led the Bucks to a 3-2 lead in the Finals. Yes, they got lucky a few times, when opposing teams had major injuries. But, to be fair, who doesn’t? 9 postseason out of 10, there are major injuries to teams in the playoffs, that somebody else gets to profit from.
All in all, Milwaukee has done magnificently so far this year. But, can they really be called a dynasty even if they win this year? Colin Cowherd certainly thinks so.
Let’s get into it.
“Giannis Antetokounmpo is exactly what the league needs”: Colin Cowherd can’t help but think the Bucks are next up in the league
Now, before we start here, we must admit that during the same episode of ‘The Herd’, Colin Cowherd made some great points. He explained why he respects superteams, but also why organically built teams attract better viewership. He also explained why he loves the Bucks as a team.
Why does he think they are already a dynasty though? Take a look at the clip in the tweet below.
Are the Bucks the next dynasty?
“Unlike LeBron, Giannis is not brand obsessed. Unlike brittle KD, he’s not a wanderer nor bothered by media criticism… Maybe Giannis is exactly what the league needs.” — @ColinCowherd pic.twitter.com/WcDYgZQHWC

While we do somewhat agree about his points about the Philadelphia 76ers and the Miami Heat, the analyst skipped his way around one major point. The Brooklyn Nets.
At the end of the day, there is a reason why teams resort to making superteams if they can. Because they are the closest thing to unbeatable.
As much as we like Milwaukee as a team, we doubt they get past the Nets at full power.
This year could be their one and only chance to win it all for a long time. Will they be able to make it count? Or will the Suns beat them to it?
