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.
