Giannis has a better team than James Harden, but he isn't the better player. The easiest way to prove that is by asking yourself if Giannis could win games without Middleton, Brogdon, and Bledsoe. Then answer is NO. Anybody who says Giannis is better is just some salty fuckhead who is tired of seeing James Harden win.

Did he just give Harden props because the refs baby his ass? The only reason Harden is unstoppable, is because he is allowed to travel, and no one is allowed to guard him.

No Steven a smith, James harden is the most un-guardable player because of how biased the refs are when it comes to him. You can’t defense him without sending him to the line. We’ve seen what happens when the refs aren’t calling ghost fouls for him.

Its just cuz hes in milwaukee. Foreal no one ever gives anybody there enough atention. Even when they have been good, granted its been a wile, but people dnt even watch whole games even now with all the hype. People like S.A.S. Think they only need tk watch a few mins and theyre automatically experts cuz their so good at their job they must not need to watch as much as ur average person or even close to it. They only even just started nationally broadcasting the bucks like this yr.. hadnt had a game on christmas since 1970 somthin, whats that tell u, folks aint payin atention.

Giannis plays more D and gives you rebounds and hustle but Harden has way superior offense. They are both equally good facilitators in different ways. Depends what you are lacking in your team. And 39% is excellent 3pt shooting its probably top 5 in the league so yeah.

I like how getting respect from the officals, & drawing fouls has become a stat, & reason to call someone unguardable. Of coarse he is unguardable with all the traveling, flopping, & flailing he do. You can't guard someone who gets 15pts a game from free throws alone 😂😂

By the way in the 15-16 season when Harden disn’t make any of the All NBA teams before D’Antoni became the coach of the Rockets, Harden averaged 29 7.5 and 6 shooting 44% from the field and 36% from 3. I don’t know what revisionist history Max is referencing, but he’s dead wrong. Harden’s ppg actually hasn’t overprojected in the D’Antoni era considering the year to year increases he was making prior to D’Antoni. His asists have taken an upturn due to D’Antoni’s offense, but honestly that’s the kind of offense Morey has been wanting to run anyway. You saw the Rockets trending towards minimizing mid-range while maximizing 3s and layups.

Let me just put it this way..... Giannis is so tall and long and fast and strong and dominant that he doesn't have to do all that crap that Harden does.. He doesn't have to get to the line 30 times every game in order to get 30 pts..... He doesn't have to travel to make buckets......

It’s so easy to say that Giannis can be defended by leaving him space. If you leave him space he is gonna drive like a runaway train and dunk on anyone at 65ish % efficiency. That’s the equivalent of a 43% 3pt shooter if you do the maths.

Vanisher 9 днів тому
This is a hard decision but we need to make the circumstances clear. If we are talking about overall game, I belive giannis is better because he does so well on defense while playing elite offence. If we are talking who is gonna get you more points, definitely harden cos he can play in the paint just not as well as giannis but he is a great mid range player and a solid 3 point shooter

At the end of the day, Antetokounmpo averages 26 and barely shoots jumpers lol. He would average 35 if he could actually shoot. Plus Harden production decreases in the playoffs........ give me Greek Freak. Ohh and he plays defense.
