Giannis Antetokounmpo takes funny shot at James Harden

Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo took a funny shot at James Harden while picking his All-Star team on Thursday.

Antetokounmpo and LeBron James are the captains of the two All-Star teams that will play in the All-Star Game in Chicago on February 16. The captains drafted their respective teams on TNT Thursday, and Giannis had a funny moment when deciding between Harden, Kemba Walker and Trae Young. He said his decision was between Walker and Young and that he didn’t want Harden.

“I want somebody that’s gonna pass the ball, that’s what I want,” Antetokounmpo said, to multiple laughs.

LeBron ended up getting Harden on his team.

Harden is a ball-dominant player, but that’s also by design in Houston’s offense. Playing in the All-Star Game, things would likely be different, but it’s still funny to hear Giannis keep it real by saying that. So long as they keep Harden away from certain places on Saturday night, they should be fine.

Giannis’ team included himself, Kemba Walker, Joel Embiid, Pascal Siakam, Trae Young, Khris Middleton, Bam Adebayo, Rudy Gobert, Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, Brandon Ingram and Donovan Mitchell. LeBron’s team included Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic, Harden, Damian Lillard, Ben Simmons, Nikola Jokic, Jayson Tatum, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and Domantas Sabonis.
