It's Friday and I'm going to start drinking soon, but I wanted to bless y'all with this: Giannis Antetokounmpo is fun as hell to watch.
(P.S. spelled that right first try NBD)
The kid has arms like that of a mythical wingèd beast. He can get from half-court to the basket in three steps and two dribbles. He's among the freakiest of the freaks of nature that comprise the rosters of the NBA.
And I hope he gets destroyed tonight.
Giannis will be matched up against the likes of Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith. In each of their own ways, they have the capabilities to absolutely overpower the Greek Freak. Donatas can manhandle him on the low block and Smith is stronger and can come close to matching him athletically.
I think the Rockets will win tonight. It might be an easy win, it might be a close one. I think Harden goes off for 40 or more. And I want to see Giannis get demoralized.
