At the beginning of the month, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo held their all-star draft. Giannis took Celtics guard Kemba Walker over James Harden and joked that it was because Kemba would pass him the ball. Then during the all-star game, Giannis took another shot at Harden by explaining that his team was focusing on attacking Harden on the defensive end of the floor towards the end of the game.
Friday morning, Harden broke his silence on the matter during an interview saying, "I wish I could just run, be 7-feet and just run and dunk. Like that takes no skill at all. I gotta actually learn how to play basketball and how to have skill."
While they don't play a lot (only met 13 times in the last seven years), they do play on March 25th in Milwaukee. Will things spill over on the court? We'll have to wait and find out.
