Oscar Robertson Says Anthony Davis Is The Only Player Capable of Shutting Down Giannis
The Milwaukee Bucks have officially won the 2021 NBA Finals, largely due to the performance of Giannis Antetokounmpo. Only 26 years old, he put the League on watch, making it known he’s one of the best players in the entire NBA.
After winning the championship, Antetokounmpo has been getting well-deserved praise, especially from Bucks legend Oscar Robertson. One of the most difficult players to defend in the entire NBA, Robertson said that only Anthony Davis has the ability to shut Antetokounmpo down.
“The only person I think has the size to have a decent chance at guarding Giannis is A.D. from the Lakers. No one else,” said Robertson on SiriusXM.
Antetokounmpo averaged 35.2 points and 13.2 points per game in the Finals, while shooting 61.8 percent from the floor. This was capped off by a historic 50-point performance in Game 6 when the Bucks won the series.
