Giannis Antetokounmpo has great response to Joel Embiid’s big claim
Joel Embiid is known for his confident personality, while Giannis Antetokounmpo is a bit more soft-spoken. Both are great players, but those differing views are pretty clear in the way they speak.
In March, Embiid dubbed himself the NBA’s most unstoppable player. Certain people would argue that point, including some fans of Antetokounmpo, who is averaging 27.4 points and 12.5 rebounds per game.
Antetokounmpo had a very measured response when asked about Embiid’s claim.

Basically, you’re not going to get bulletin board material out of Giannis. Neither one of these players is necessarily right or wrong, but it’s clear they take a different view on how to approach the trash-talking side of the game.
