Milwaukee Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer seemed to take shots at James Harden’s trending remarks regarding Giannis Antetokounmpo’s style of play. Speaking after the game, he talked of Antetokounmpo’s talent and skills, and that the organization wants him to be their identity.

Coach Bud seemed to reference Harden’s recent jabs at the Greek Freak in a recent interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols. The six-foot-five guard said, “I wish I could just run and be seven feet and just dunk. Like that takes no skill at all.”

Giannis recently led the Bucks Friday night to a historic 47-point rout against OKC. The reigning MVP scored 32 of Milwaukee’s 133, all while grabbing 13 rebounds and dishing out 6 dimes.

The supposed beef between the two seemingly started when Giannis took last season’s MVP trophy. Subsequently, the Bucks forward chose Kemba Walker over Harden during the All-Star draft, saying he needed someone “who can pass.” Regardless, their respective teams seem to be thriving with them leading.

Antetokounmpo is an MVP front-runner once again with averages of 29.7 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 5.8 assists. Most importantly, Milwaukee is having a historic run with a current 51-8 record. They currently lead the East, nine games ahead of the second-seeded Toronto Raptors.

The Rockets, meanwhile, are seeking to bolster their current record of 38-20, fourth in the stacked Western Conference. Harden is once again the league’s leading scorer at 35.2 points per game, and is an All-Star for the eighth straight season.

Fans will certainly look forward to the matchup between the two teams, scheduled less than a month away at Mar. 26.
