James Harden responded to derisive comments Giannis Antetokounmpo made against him during the NBA All-Star Game draft.
Antetokounmpo selected Kemba Walker over Harden, insinuating that he preferred someone who passes the ball. Harden pointed out that he averages more assists per game than Walker, but his next comment was outwardly dismissive of Antetokounmpo’s skill.
“I wish I could just run and be 7 feet and just dunk. Like that takes no skill at all,” Harden said. “I gotta actually learn how to play basketball, how to have skill. I take that any day.”
