There appears to be a burgeoning, mostly one-sided beef between Giannis and James Harden. A timeline:
Feb. 6: While drafting his All-Star team, and with James Harden clearly the best player left, Giannis says he is between Kemba Walker and Trae Young, and “wants somebody that’s going to pass the ball,” eventually taking Walker.
Feb. 16: During the All-Star Game, Giannis appears to hit Harden with a nasty elbow.
Feb. 16: Once the game is over, during his post game presser, Giannis says, unprovoked, “Offensively, we were just trying to find whoever James Harden was guarding. That’s who we thought we had an opportunity to score on.”
We have no idea where this venom is coming from. We can only hope it doesn't involve the Kardashians.
