NBA Fans Slam Giannis Antetokounmpo For Abysmal NBA All-Star Game Drafting


Giannis Antetokounmpo is great at basketball.

Just as a player, not an executive.

As one of the team captains for the NBA All-Star Game, the Milwaukee Bucks star on Thursday was responsible for drafting his team for the annual showcase. He will be going up against LeBron James’ team, and let’s just say James’ squad will be in much better shape talent-wise than Giannis’.

Among the gaffes the Greek Freak made, he:

— Took Joel Embiid with the second overall pick over Kawhi Leonard (among others)
— Selected Khris Middleton as his first reserve (leaving Damian Lillard on the board) and then proceeded to take Bam Adebayo as his second reserve.
— Chose Brandon Ingram and Kyle Lowry over Russell Westbrook.

Here are the full teams.

This is the second year in a row Antetokounmpo has been a suspect drafter, so he got flamed on Twitter.


Etc., etc.

Of course, the talent pool is comprised of the league’s top players, so no team is *that* bad. However, that almost makes it more impressive that Giannis managed to put together a team that is so much worse than James’.
