Gilbert Arenas Gives Harsh Comparison of Giannis Antetokounmpo to James Harden

Gilbert Arenas is one of the most outspoken guys on Social Media. The former NBA player is never one to shy away from controversy, and his latest hot take is probably going to piss off some Bucks fans. During his appearance on Shannon Sharpe’s “Club Shay Shay” podcast, he compares Giannis to James Harden, and claims their style will never allow them to win a championship.

“To be honest, he’s the James Harden of the East Coast,” Arenas said. “What James Harden is in the West, is what Giannis is there. You have a guy who’s not a point guard, who dominates the ball, and he’s playing one style. And that style is: ‘I’m gonna try to take all the big men who can’t move off the dribble, Euro step and get some dunks.’ That is amazing during the regular season, but when that court gets small you can’t do that anymore.”

Giannis and Harden continue to be two of the most scrutinized players in the league.  Coincidentally,  Harden recently revealed that he’s willing to play with him in Milwaukee.

Wonder how Gilbert would feel about that.
