Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s hilarious reaction to LeBron James picking him first in All-Star draft

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the most humble players around, but even he couldn’t hold back his confident statement when he was informed of his All-Star teammates captained by Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James.

Giannis also has history on his side as Team LeBron has won all All-Star Games since the West versus East format was changed to the captain system. When James retires he should seriously consider being a general manager as he just excels in these All-Star drafts.

Last year, Team LeBron had the much better team on paper besting Giannis once again in the selection process. However, that ended up being a cardiac affair as the winning margin was just two points. For the most part, the All-Star Game is all fun and games with little to no defense, but in last year’s edition players turned up the intensity towards the end.

This year though, Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant was making the picks for the opposing team and he may have picked even worse than Antetokounmpo. While Team LeBron was full of playmakers and well-rounded individuals, Durant’s was full of scorers. Then again if the Nets can function properly with Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden then Team Durant winning is still a possibility.

If the teams play with the same fire as last year’s edition, then this still should be a must-watch game. While Giannis Antetokounmpo has two league MVPs to his name, he has not yet won an All-Star MVP, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if brings his A-game to Atlanta and adds another feather in his cap.
