    Giannis just gave Harden an Apollo Creed right hook. Harden has to be feeling that today!

    The way Giannis beats the buzzer, suggests he can be a very talented volleyball setter. In fact, I think he is able to play all volleyball positions. Maybe. When he retires from basketball. For fun. MVP.

    Rockets had to make 18 threes to even try to keep close in the game. I know damn well they won’t make that much every night plus once they don’t get to the line and get calls as much they are pretty much the Phoenix suns

    Giannis picks up Harden's weak body from the neck, raises him up in the air, and says:

    Made me crack up laughing when Harden got belted on the head with the ball and bucks made the three. That is why James Harden doesn't pay defence. 😂

    Watching this game and Harden is clearly better than Giannis he just had more help this game. Harden was the only reason this game was even close cause his team played like shit with no Gordon or Cp3

      Yes Harden is great.. But he play alone.. Bucks has no stars and Giannis is just 24y.. Giannis effect 29-11 Bucks.!!

    • Jeremiah Hull

      Giannis usage is Lower he is around 30% while hardens usage is at 45% he controls how the team plays. Giannis plays team ball he gives up the ball earlier in the shot clock. Due to this his teammates will have more of a opportunity to score and create there own shot. What puts Giannis over harden is his defense. Harden is not a better player you might wanna get your eyes checked.

      I mean, he wasn't more efficient, despite the attention he didn't get his teammates involved with easy shots, and he didn't do much defensively.
      He got his 40 spot though. So good for him. Giannis got his team the w, creating for his teammates when he got the attention. Harden played very selfishly. Maybe he feels like he has to.
      But team ball always prevails. It's why the GSW are so good. Super stars yes, hut they play as a team.

    • Htown Rockets

      Replicant Roy The whole defense was focused on him bc his team shot 12-43 which is worse. He had no help tonight. If we had Gordon and Cp3 to help him out and handle the ball we would of easily won this game

      The Bucks threw everything at Harden, and his "off game" was still 42 points. The efficiency was down a bit, come on now man. The guy can score. Kobe was a better two way player, but as an offensive player, yeah Harden is up there with Kobe. The Bucks have a better overall squad and the Rockets are undermanned at this point.

      Exactly they made 18 threes n still couldn’t win. Once those threes don’t go down no other way of scoring they are done. Let’s not even talk about how many free throws they get to because once those calls go down to they are pretty much shit

  • mac88white - All stories on my channel

    Both Lord James Harden, The Bearded Dragon and Giannis Antetokounmpo, Lord of the Eastern Forest worked best alone and were thus known to trek across the realm on solo training excursions to hone their skills. Given their prolific work ethics, they were bound to cross paths eventually.
    During one such exucursion away from his fellow Iron Birds of the Flatlands, Harden came upon a small forest in the middle of the plains. Since the flora did not match the climate, he knew that a certain legendary knight who could move the roots of trees through the soil was nearby.
    Within moments of crossing the forest line, the tall trees shifted rapidly and formed a large circle around him, trapping him inside. Harden snickered to himself for a moment and dismounted his horse as the trees grew even taller. An unsettling fog began to roll through the now darkened arena when Harden finally saw him, the towering Giannis.
    The legendary knight rode on a giant black steed with glowing red eyes and wore a gold helmet adorned with massive deer antlers sprouting from the sides. Suddenly, he stood up on the horse's back, leaped high into the air, and landed a few feet in front of Harden.
    Without saying a word and with his eyes closed, Giannis squared his body up with Harden's, accentuating his massive frame. The two knights posed motionless and sized each other up as the thick fog continued to roll through the scene.
    Giannis then opened his arm and held his hand over a hole that had begun to open in the ground. Moments later, the handle of his fabled ultra-greatsword emerged from the pulsating opening then floated up into his open hand. The legendary weapon was as tall as it's wielder and was impossible for a mortal man to handle. Curiously, the extra wide blade had two holes cut side by side about halfway down. It was said the sword was forged that way because Giannis wanted to ensure that in addition to the sword being the last thing his enemies saw, the last thing they would hear was the distinctive sound of it whooshing through the air.
    With his eyes still closed, Giannis held the sword close to his body and face with both hands and with the blade end facing The Bearded Dragon.
    Harden wanted no part of a sword duel with Giannis and immediately hopped backward out of range. After establishing a favorable distance, he drew his legendary step-back bow and pointed it at his opponent.
    In response, Giannis then slowly turned the broad side of his sword to his face, effectively forming a shield thanks to it's unprecedented width. The awestruck Harden took a half step backwards as Giannis' ferocious eyes peeked out through the two holes cut in the steel.
