This Is The Hardest NBA Player To Guard According To Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks is known for being one of the best all around players in the NBA nowadays.

On an IG Live started by Giannis Antetokounmpo, the 6'11 superstar entertained questions from fans and was asked who he feels is the hardest player to guard in the NBA today. After taking about 10 seconds to think about it, the Greek Freak named his arch rival from the Houston Rockets, James Harden.

The Greek Freak is averaging 30 points,14 rebounds, and 6 assists per game in the 2019-2020 NBA season, according to ESPN. In a game between the Bucks and Rockets last January, Giannis led his team to a 116-109 victory against Harden and the Rockets. James Harden poured in 42 points which brings validity as to why Giannis would call him "the hardest player to guard". Harden is averaging 34 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists per game. Giannis and Harden have created a slight rivalry as they have gone back and forth about each other's game. In the past, Harden has said that Gianni's game requires very little skill. Nevertheless, the two are both top contenders in this year's NBA Finals run..if there is one.
