after Giannis:

    LA business owners fighting to survive in pandemic feel mix of hope and frustration China economic blueprint signals more coal investment © Provided by CBS Sports Giannis Antetokounmpo knows firsthand what an effective general manager LeBron James can be. The two were opposing captains in the previous two All-Star Drafts, and on both occasions, James built the winning team. All in all, LeBron is 3-0 as an All-Star captain, and if Antetokounmpo's reaction to hearing LeBron's roster on Thursday is any indication, he expects him to remain undefeated this weekend.  Unlike the past two seasons, Antetokounmpo was not the top vote-getter in the Eastern Conference this season. That honor belonged to Kevin Durant, so Antetokounmpo was pushed into the draft pool like the rest of his All-Star counterparts. Happy not to have to play against him, James scooped Antetokounmpo up with the No. 1 overall pick in the All-Star...
    LeBron James asserts he is the King During their last game, LeBron had a terrible performance. He shot a miserable 6-16 from the field and 2-7 from three against the Warriors, and this was one of the main reasons the Lakers lost. So coming into tonight’s game, he knew that not only were the stakes higher, but he also needed redemption. The Clippers had taken over their #1 spot in the West, so the Lakers had to maintain the pressure. With this in mind, LeBron went full throttle on offense tonight, and the Bucks had no way to stop him. They had their best defender, Jrue Holiday, on him, but even he was rendered useless by the King. LeBron had a massive 34 points display while shooting 13-25 from the field, and 6-10 from the three-point line. He also had six rebounds and eight assists, as he...
    Getty Images LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers. LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers got the best of two-time defending MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks 113-106 on Thursday night. James outplayed Antetokounmpo — who he finished runner-up to for the MVP a year ago — netting 34 points and helping the Lakers seal the deal down the stretch. But after the game, James wasn’t worried about the storyline of the individual matchup. “I can care less about that,” James said, per USA Today. “I try to play well and help our team win against any team.” James co-star Anthony Davis didn’t bite either on delivering any juicy bulletin-board material on Antetokounmpo, who he finished runner-up to in the Defensive Player of the Year race last season. “Honestly no one had brought that up or talked about it. Our motivation was not losing two in...
    LeBron James was not happy Thursday night after being denied at the rim by Giannis Antetokounmpo.  The Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks were in action Thursday night in what could be an NBA Finals preview. This meant one of the more exciting annual showdowns between LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo. The two superstars met at the rim during the third quarter, and the Bucks star came away the winner with a clean block. James was not happy at all and thought a foul should have been called.

    After a lot of speculation, Giannis Antetokounmpo has put pen to paper with his contract extension. He is ready to stay in Milwaukee and has signed a five-year, $228 million supermax extension. After back-to-back playoff failures, he wants to lead them to a title. Last season, Giannis and the Bucks were stopped by Jimmy Butler’s Heat. It was an easy win for the Heat, who advanced after beating the Bucks 4-1 in the Conference Semifinals. But despite their win, Butler has a lot of respect for the Greek Freak. “I know he’s a hell of a player,” Butler said in a recent interview. “He wants to be great. “He’s done a phenomenal job at it. They’ve got a good core group around him. It’s going to be interesting and fun to watch, but even more fun to go to battle against those guys. So can’t wait for the Heat...

    Getty LeBron James (right) and the Lakers could face a much stiffer test in Giannis Antetokounmpo (left) and the Milwaukee Bucks. For the Bucks, Monday was a night for power moves, transactions that could very well seal their position at the top of the Eastern Conference for years to come—if, that is, they get a certain MVP’s signature on a supermax contract. Milwaukee came away with two trade-market prizes, bringing in Jrue Holiday from the Pelicans and Bogdan Bogdanovic from the Kings, remaking their backcourt and reasserting themselves as the team to beat in the East and maybe even the team to beat in the NBA overall. Putting those two players in a lineup with Giannis Antetokounmpo, without losing forward Khris Middleton or center Brook Lopez, could very well deal a different kind of blow to teams like the Lakers and the Miami Heat because those moves should...
    Getty Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. There were plenty of doubters this year but the Los Angeles Lakers proved them all wrong with their dominating Game 6 win over the Miami Heat to secure the NBA championship for the 17th time. The team may have faltered and let a game slip through their hands in Game 5 but LeBron James and company weren’t going to let that happen for two games in a row. Pretty much all year, most people favored either the Milwaukee Bucks or Clippers to win it all and neither of them even made the Conference Finals. Ironically, NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo hasn’t won a championship but his little brother Kostas now has. Lakers center JaVale McGee took a jab at Giannis while he was celebrating Kostas.

    Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo said he will not request a trade after his team crashed out of the NBA playoffs in the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Antetokounmpo watched from the sidelines due to an ankle sprain as the top-seeded Bucks suffered a 4-1 series defeat following Tuesday’s 103-94 loss to the Miami Heat. Attention immediately turned to Antetokounmpo’s future, with the reigning MVP set to become a free agent at the end of 2020-21, while he is eligible for a max contract extension worth around $254million this offseason. But Antetokounmpo dismissed speculation, telling Yahoo Sports: “It’s not happening. That’s not happening.” “Some see a wall and go in [another direction]. I plow through it. We just have to get better as a team, individually and get right back at it next season.” The Bucks – eyeing a first championship since 1971 – had finished the regular season with an...

    Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer was unsure whether Giannis Antetokounmpo would be fit for Game 5 of the team’s NBA playoff series against the Heat after the Milwaukee star reinjured his right ankle in Game 4 on Sunday. The reigning MVP had posted 19 points in 11 minutes before having to leave the game. Khris Middleton inspired the Bucks with 36 points as they stayed alive in the Eastern Conference semifinals with a 118-115 overtime victory. There is no guarantee Antetokounmpo will be back for Game 5 on Tuesday. The Heat lead the best-of-seven series 3-1 at Walt Disney World Resort. “As far as for Game 5, they’re evaluating him now,” Budenholzer told a news conference. “He’ll get treatment through the night and we’ll just see how he does over the next 24-48 hours and, no, there was no consideration about him coming back [Sunday].” While it was Middleton who ended up keeping the top-seeded...
    Bucks big man Giannis Antetokounmpo will sit out the remainder of his team’s playoff game Sunday vs. the Heat after suffering another right ankle sprain in the first half. The Greek Freak, who was questionable to start the game because of a sprain he suffered in Game 3 of the series, rolled his ankle again in Game 4 on a drive to the basket early in the second quarter. He stayed in the game to shoot free throws and then went to the sideline to be examined. He later limped to the locker room. The Bucks have confirmed Antetokounmpo won’t return.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo took a gamble playing in Game 4 with the Bucks season on the line The Greek Freak’s season and early career legacy may very well be on the line in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, as his Milwaukee Bucks are on the verge of being swept by the Miami Heat. Antetokounmpo was fouled by the Heat on a fairly routine play, but he came down awkwardly on his already-injured ankle. While he remained in the game to shoot free throws, he had trouble putting any weight on his ankle, and was removed from the game shortly thereafter. Now Giannis has stopped the bench.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is staring down a second-round playoff sweep at the hands of the Heat after his Bucks were outscored 40-13 in the fourth quarter of a 115-100 loss on Friday night. For a player in the running to win his second straight NBA MVP honor, such an exit would leave a stain on his otherwise sterling reputation. He shot 7 of 21 in Game 3 — including an 0-for-7 mark from deep — and watched Jimmy Butler put up more points than his entire team in the final period (17-13). Antetokounmpo, so often the darling of social media for his style of play, received a hefty dose of criticism for his latest showing. There were also increasing murmurs about how long he’ll stick around in Milwaukee.

    The most talked-about moment in this second-round series came when Giannis Antetokounmpo followed coach Bud’s game plan and decided to not guard Jimmy Butler during the final minutes of Fame 1. It proved to be a crucial moment and turned out to be costly for the Bucks. Giannis received plenty of trash for it, but late in Game 3, he decided to lock down Butler.  During a moment in the 4th quarter, Butler broke loose from Giannis, who unsuccessfully chased him to the rim to only watch Butler score a layup. This swift move by Butler raised Miami’s lead, which in turn hyped the bench up.  Moreover, Butler himself was enjoying the matchup against Giannis and his brief triumph over him. After successfully scoring against Giannis, Butler turned towards the Bucks bench and yelled, “He can’t guard me.”  Jimmy Butler scores on Giannis in clutch, looks right at the Bucks...
    The Miami Heat pulled off an upset win against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1. One of the main reasons for their win was a poor showing by Bucks star player Giannis Antetokounmpo. After averaging 30 points in the series against the Magic, he only put up 18 points while taking just 12 shots all game. On the other hand, Jimmy Butler lit up the show, scoring 40 points off 13/120 from the field.  In the post-game interview, Giannis was asked why he didn’t make the switch to guard Butler, but he got annoyed. He instead asked why should he have done that and said that his coach didn’t want him to guard Butler. So is it really not possible for Giannis to guard Butler?

    Last season, Giannis Antetokounmpo was named MVP. Last week, he was named Defensive Player of the Year. The Bucks superstar’s peers would like to see him live up to the honors. Multiple NBA players seem dumbfounded that Antetokounmpo didn’t volunteer to guard Heat star Jimmy Butler in Miami’s 115-104 second-round opening win, during which Butler scored 40 points. “No, I didn’t [ask],” Antetokounmpo said after the loss. “Why would you ask that? I’ll do whatever coach wants me to do.” Coach Mike Budenholzer didn’t make the request of his best player, but former All-Star Isaiah Thomas said that shouldn’t have prevented Antetokounmpo from seeking the most important defensive assignment. Another All-Star player told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon that the reigning MVP shouldn’t be considered a lockdown defender because he doesn’t shut down other stars.
