Giannis Antetokounmpo vs. James Harden. It’s on.

Houston Rockets star James Harden continued the “feud” that has been going on between him and Milwaukee Bucks star and reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo following the 2020 All-Star Game Draft.

Antetokounmpo selected Boston Celtics guard Kemba Walker for his All-Star game “Team Giannis” during the draft. When Charles Barkley asked him how come he doesn’t want the available “dribbler” Harden, the “Greek Freak” answered: “I want somebody that’s gonna pass the ball.”

“I average more assists than him [Walker] I think… I don’t see what the joke is,” Harden said in an interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols when asked about Giannis going with Walker instead of him.

In the All-Star Game post-match presser, Giannis mentioned that the offensive strategy of his team down the stretch was to “find whoever James Harden was guarding.”

“When all is said and done, they’ll appreciate it more,” Harden responded regarding a comment Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey made about the 2018 MVP being underappreciated. He then added: “But I wish I could just be 7 feet, run and just dunk. Like that takes no skill at all. “I gotta actually learn how to play basketball, how to have skill. I take that any day.”

In case you are wondering, the next game between the Bucks and the Rockets is taking place on March 25.
