The way Philly did it last night at least, yes. There might be a happy balance somewhere, but neither Philly or anyone else has found it yet. Philly having Embiid play way off Giannis has resulted in Giannis scoring 140 points per 100 possessions. Utah defended him the same way with Gobert and it resulted in Gobert laying on his back half the possessions and getting benched in the 4th. Pretty much everyone has tried putting a big man on him and letting him take jumpers and itís almost never worked. Like I said, he just uses the space to get up to full speed and pushes guys out of his way on his way to a dunk (and heís also been hitting the jump shots that he does take).

Re: 4/2 - 4/10 Games Discussion Thread

Giannis is the first player to have 45 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and ZERO turnovers in a single game since Michael Jordan in 1989!!

And not to mention, 5 blocks, which might put him the only one in the history of the NBA.

That jump call don't count as a turnover?

I always wondered about this. I'm guessing they (there was another jump ball earlier in the game) don't count as turnovers because Giannis won the jump balls and therefore his team didn't actually turn it over.

I'm sure Harden does the same type of stuff, but for the past month or so I've been noticing Reddit has been posting a lot of community involvement stuff about Giannis. Mostly him meeting kids through various nonprofits and him going beyond the normal requirements and making a kid's day. He literally gave a kid the jacket off of his back.

Being 30+ years old and getting more and more wrapped up in the business side, the stats, and the gossip it's easy to forget where it all started as a kid. Watching these kids meet their idol athlete is mesmerizing and incredibly lifting. I know in the grand scheme it impacts little, but it's great to see continually positive stories come from the league compared to it's peers.
