James Harden Claps Back at Giannis Antetokounmpo

by February 28, 2020

James Harden evidently wasn’t very amused by Giannis Antetokounmpo joking about why he picked Kemba Walker over him for his NBA All-Star squad earlier this month.

Giannis added fuel to the fire by knocking Harden’s defensive abilities after the big game.

The Beard clapped back with a thinly-veiled shot at The Greek Freak’s game, alluding to his belief that Antetokounmpo’s size and otherworldly athleticism mask a supposed lack of skill.

The Rockets’ 30-year-old superstar guard also addressed the MVP race and Houston’s super-small-ball attack this season.


“I average more assists than [Walker], I think,” Harden told Rachel Nichols.

“I don’t see what the joke is.

Added Harden: “I wish I could just run and … seven feet and run and just dunk. That takes no skill at all. I gotta actually learn how to play basketball and how to have skill.”
