Giannis Antetokounmpo ‘too much’ for LeBron James, Lakers

Giannis Antetokounmpo

LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers got beat by the Milwaukee Bucks 111-104 on Thursday night in a big game between the top two teams in the league by record. After the defeat, the Lakers gave praise to Giannis Antetokounmpo, recognizing how well the reigning MVP played in the win.

LeBron was asked about Antetokounmpo making a career-high five three-pointers in the win and how difficult he is to defend when he’s making those shots. James’ response was to tip his hat to Giannis.

Lakers head coach Frank Vogel also admitted Giannis was “too much” for the team.

Giannis is so tough to defend that you actually want him taking three-pointers against you, since he is only making 32.1 percent of them this season. But when he makes 5 of 8 attempts, you have to just give him credit. Giannis had 34 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists in the win. He also crowned himself the king.

Lakers fans, show everyone who runs LA with this great T-shirt:
