Giannis Antetokounmpo is confident enough about Team LeBron to talk some trash

Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James teammates in the All-Star Game after facing off against each other last year and Giannis thinks it’s unfair.

Two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo was not tasked with making All-Star selections again this year. That job, held by Antetokounmpo for the past two years, was transferred over to Kevin Durant, who his made his way to the Eastern Conference by way of the Brooklyn Nets. Instead of facing off with LeBron James again, Giannis joins Team LeBron in hopes of taking down Team Durant this Sunday, March 7 during the All-Star Game in Atlanta.

The teams made their selections last night and the former Defensive Player of the Year likes what he sees as far as teammates. LeBron is currently 3-0 as an All-Star captain and looking to remain undefeated this weekend. Antetokounmpo feels that Team Durant doesn’t stand a chance in the matchup.

James grabbed Antetokounmpo up with the No. 1 overall pick in the All-Star Draft and followed that selection with those of Stephen CurryLuka Doncic, and Nikola Jokic. As it turns out this guy knows how to put together a team. Who would’ve thought?

Giannis hadn’t heard the news of his new teammates before his pos-game interview on Thursday night following the Bucks’ win over the Grizzlies but he loved them once he did. Once he heard the starting five, he stated that the game doesn’t even need to be played.

That sure ought to light a fire under Team Durant which features the two-time champion along with his teammates Kyrie Irving and James Harden, Kawhi Leonard, MVP candidate, Joel Embiid, and others.

Who do you have winning this year?
