    Giannis Antetokounmpo Has 'Very Limited' Talent, Claims Controversial Former NBA Forward

    Former NBA player Al Harrington, however, said Giannis has “very limited” skills. As a guest on The Bakari Sellers Podcast, the controversial journeyman said opposing teams can easily defend the two-time MVP (via New York Post).

    “Giannis, as great as he is, he’s very limited. Why he’s so good is because all season he plays somebody once every couple of months, so you don’t really get a chance to game plan for him, so all that dribbling full court and dunking works. Now, it’s a series and his opponent can pay attention to all your weaknesses, like, ‘We know you can’t go left, we know you can’t shoot the 3,’ you’re going to get exposed every time in a series.”

    Nevertheless peak Antetokoumpo isn’t up to peak Durant, James Harden or Kyrie Irving, according to Harrington. Each of the Nets’ Big 3 has a multi-faceted offensive game.

    “Healthy Brooklyn versus everyone else isn’t even close,’’ Harrington said. “When you think about playoff basketball historically, it’s when the game slows down … that means people are getting stops. But when you have three monsters that are 1-on-1 wizards and are elite at what they do … of course they have to play defense, but the other team has to play defense for real.”

    Harrington, who played for seven teams in 17 seasons in the NBA made his fiery take prior to Game 6, so he might be singing a different tune now. After all, it’s hard to ignore Giannis’ 30 points on 12-of-20 shooting and 17 rebounds. He also heeded the challenge of defending Nets superstar Kevin Durant.

    One of the reasons why I’m now rooting for the Bucks is because I want to hear the bullshyt people say when Giannis gets that ring. I understand he’s not a good shooter but these guys act as if he’s not productive and he doesn’t get 30 and 13 a night

    What Al and a lot of Gannis haters are failing to tell folk is once Gannis is anywhere around that rim it’s an automatic basket.. the fact that he doesn’t really need a bag because he has no consistent J… but he’s gifted enough to handle the rock and to the basket is where his bread and butter is.. you saw it in the Nets series… Once he stopped with the 3s and decided to live in the paint shyt changed… He’s a physical anomaly

    Meh, he is not wrong but he is elite at what he does. There has never been a player as athletic, tall, strong, fast. He has zero post move outside of spinning BUT Giannis actually tries. Overtime he may develop a bag.

    See that's the problem with these folks mindset. You don't need to be good at everything if you can do one thing at an elite damn near unstoppable level. Mariano Rivera threw ONE pitch. You gonna say he wasn't a good pitcher?

    Giannis is a physical freak. fukk skills

    Be Shaq. Physically impose your will. Giannis biggest mistake is trying to be a jumpshooter. Attack the rim every possession

    "Now, it’s a series and his opponent can pay attention to all your weaknesses, like, ‘We know you can’t go left, we know you can’t shoot the 3,’ you’re going to get exposed every time in a series"

    Averaging 32 & 13 at 57% from the field over 7 games was getting exposed :skip:
