During the selection show for this year's All-Star game, team captain Giannis Antetokounmpo joked that he would take Kemba Walker over James Harden because he wanted somebody how could pass.
Racheal Nichols asked Harden about the quip, and he had pointed response.
"When it's all said and done people will appreciate it more. But I wish I could just run, be 7 feet & dunk. That takes no skill at all. I gotta actually learn how to play basketball & have skill."— Ballislife.com (@Ballislife) February 28, 2020

"I average more assists him than [Walker], I think. I don't see what the joke is," he said, and then trained his fire on The Greek Freek. "I wish I could be 7-feet, run and just dunk. That takes no skill at all. I gotta actually learn how to play basketball and how to have skill. I'll take that any day."
Harden is certainly correct about the assists and Walker -- The Beard gets 7.3 per game and Kemba just 5.
What do you think about the rest of what he said?
