The way Giannis is starting to play, all defenses can do is pray - Zach Lowe | The Jump

  • Published on Nov 18, 2019
  • Amin Elhassan, Ramona Shelburne, Zach Lowe and Chiney Ogwumike discuss Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is playing even better than in his 2018-19 NBA MVP season. They then (2:28) debate whether the Houston Rockets' hot streak, particularly on defense, is schedule-based.

    Giannis is a great talent indeed but y'all literally say the same things year after year and set this man up to be a letdown in the playoffs

    Seems like this WNBA player brings up her playing every time she speaks when I’m watching TMac and Richard Jefferson we rarely see them talk about their rich past because they are more focused on analyzing than proping themselves up

    Lool Lebron isn't even in mvp conversation this season, yall cap too much. 1. Giannis 2. Harden 3. Kawhi 4. Luka

  • J. Schwahn

    The reason he’s shooting bad at free throws is because he’s taking to long to think about it. Overthinking. He’s in his own head.

    The title is misleading, watch bucks vs utah, he struggles against utahs defense, go watch thinking basketball to learned some real basketball nstead of this bullshit show

    Soon as his athleticism slows down or gets worn out from injuries he'll struggle a whole lot. I like his game but he's very one dimensional. Even as he seems to slightly improve his shot it does not seem to be a trend. He has to develop his skills soon or he will be this player forever. Which is good if he remains athletic but bad if he does not.

    The only thing james harden has been this year is a free throw wizard oml half his points are from the stripe and to boot his FG % is trash

    LeBron is the frontrunner for MVP so far. But Giannis is on his tail

    Lowe keeps saying that every year. But we know the outcome. Raps champs in 2019 sir

  • Animelytical
    Animelytical 24 days ago

    I prefer Doncic to Harden, this season. He's throwing in more twos though, which has helped

  • Animelytical
    Animelytical 24 days ago

    The math doesn't work. It works in the regular season, but even then, it is not consistent.

  • trebledc
    trebledc 25 days ago

    BS if Harden is shooting FG & 3s at 52% with defense he might win the championship but if not , this is just stat pad.

    For the record, Lebron is shooting about 5.6 3-pointers per game through the first 13 games.

    For all the haters who said my guy Giannis wouldn't improve just stand back & watch him get even more better & even more impressive 💪🏾💯

  • Michele Cozzarin
    Michele Cozzarin 25 days ago

    That jumper is the only thing separating Giannis and the NBA title. His lack of 3pt range was the main issue in last year's playoffs, Toronto left him systematically 4/5 meters to shoot and he was ineffective

  • Semi

    Can we be honest here? I won't deny Harden's greatness, but do you actually like watching Rockets games? Basketball is one of those things that is supposed to be exciting and unpredictable, but Harden possessions are totally predictable. Its hard to believe one player could make a game boring even with Westbrook on the team. Watching one guy take 40 shots or one guy taking 20 plus free throws isn't fun. They are downplaying how many shots he actually takes. If you take a shot and are fouled and the shot doesn't go in then that doesn't count against your shots taken. This guy is taking a ridiculous amount of shots.

    Harden was my favorite player and now he’s not anymore and that’s because of him being selfish on the court.

    Giannis is amazing, he’s too good and now getting his jumper together is even scarier. But man that boy Luka is only 20 doing some insane things too

    Greek freak buried in Milwaukee. He’s got to leave there when he’s a free agent. Hardin averages 40 a game? Unless someone figures out how to stop him, he’s just gonna keep doing it. Good for him

    min 2.10: he's shooting better from 3 than anyone else on this list. WRONG!!!
    LeBron and Harden have better 3pt% and more buckets of course than him.
