That doesn't really play well in a setting where you're expected to show off your athleticism. I constantly hear people say "I hate the way Harden plays basketball" or "The Rockets are such an ugly team to watch." Not exactly the brand of basketball you want to see in an ASG.

    I will say that it's disappointing that it looks like his 3-point shot wasn't falling more. Because you can pretty much take 3-pointers all game long if you want. And he did tie for the team-lead in assists and had the highest plus-minus of all the starters on Team Lebron.

    But I just wrote two paragraphs discussing the man's performance in a freaking ASG, which is two paragraphs more than this topic deserved. It certainly didn't deserve a thread, much less three pages of one. Looking at the box score, it looks like you could criticize the play of Lebron, Westbrook, Booker, Sabonis, Lowry, Mitchell, etc. Do we need threads for all of those guys, too? No. Because it's an ASG. It's a fun distraction, but nothing more.
    You should track down that fourth quarter (and the last minute or so of the third). They finally made something interesting for the ASG.

    Move Along kiddo... this isnt your night... literally everyone you have issues with went off

    lebron shut down giannis
    joel dominated and carried giannis
    ben simmons was the 2nd best player on his team behind KL and should have been in over harden
    Gobert was a god but defensive players shouldnt make it right???????
    In all fairness what the **** does Anthony Davis know about playoff games LMFAO!


    Rippin' lips son!!

    Let's center an offense around Jojo O and siakam and make giannis the 5th option. Brilliant.

    They **** the bed in the 4th? Shouldn't talk **** when Jojo Oden can't get out of the second round. Child please.

    The offenses wasn't built around Giannis last night. Not me but the consensus of nba Twitter. It's an exhibition game that you're trying to make into a big deal.. It's not

    they were all playing insanely hard... it was a big deal to the players on the court.... Giannis was like a mad man with his energy and going all out.. Lebron played defense with a purpose and yes it was a meaningless game but these dudes went hard and harden and giannis vanished in the 4th. So again what is your point? The players thought it was a big deal and played like it.

    Well both teams did not rip the net in the closing of the game not sure why you picked out Harden and Giannis.

    "playing insanely hard" is you're only argument to base this thread on? Jojo played extremely hard in his second round exits and Greg Oden played extremely hard but I haven't posted a thread recently asking who is better between the two even though I noticed that comparison.

    pretty easily tbh... giannis was taking jabs at harden before/during and after the game... giannis did his job the first 3 quarters then they put lebron on him and lebron just dominated him... harden was bad all game and giannis was spot on for not picking him. Both guys ended up costing their teams


    giannis after the game again talking trash on harden... even though giannis was shut down by lebron and cost his team the game...

    Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo on Team Giannis’s late-game offensive strategy in All-Star Game: “Offensively, we were just trying to find whoever James Harden was guarding. That’s who we thought we had an opportunity to score on.”

    well yea you are just trying to troll mine has merit... giannis was taking shots at harden and did so again after the game and was 100 percent right about harden... if your gonna take shots then backing it up is a huge thing and giannis got owned by lebron in the 4th which cost his team the win... team lebron clogged the lanes and the refs werent giving ticky tack fail calls which is 2 things giannis needs or it kills him... harden needs the fouls as well... both guys were putrid in the 4th but giannis at least played very good the first 3 quarters when teams werent defending.... harden was just bad... so seeing their performance and how giannis went out of his way to talk trash it all fits good sir.

    Your thread has as much merit as my proposed thread does. I'm right. You're wrong. This is an awful thread and failed attempt at trolling mbt and I.

    Lebron sued good defense on Giannis? Yet Giannis owned lebron in their match up this year. And then blew the healthy clippers put by 30-40. But **** that. Let's talk the asg seriously. Then Simmons and embiid thread is warranted. As well a proposed thread about jojo oden compared to oden because both play hard.

    FOH
