Listen: James Harden, Jaanus And Zion discussed on CBS Sports Radio
"Jordan. The numbers that James harden, put up its Wilt Chamberlain. Michael, Jordan, James harden. That's the list. He is the best one on one score in the NBA though. I happen to think if Kevin Durant was on a team where they did the offense around him like the rockets do around James harden. I happen to think that Durant's could do with James harden did this year. But I don't know that many other players if any other players could but James Harden's in a perfect system for his 'isolation one on one four other guys around the perimeter five hundred plus dribbles a game watch him work. But I don't think James Harden's the answer his game isn't aesthetically pleasing enough. Russell Westbrook's incredible. Joel embiid's incredible Zion. Williamson is a FINA m-. There is great talent in this league. But the answer to me for who is next. Is my man Yannis that Greek freak. I honestly can say I saw it coming because I bet him before the year to win MVP at five to one for two hundred bucks. Nice little win. But y'all. I didn't see this coming three years ago or five years ago. But he has that thing that Jordan head that Koby head and LeBron Asli had also where he has taken a leap not a step a leap every year. He is a much better basketball player every year. Not a little better a lot better. And he's twenty four Dame years old. Eight five five two one two four two two seven. If you take any umbrage with that. But I think that Jaanus is next. Think about what Jaanus did this year? All right. I'm gonna give you just some some facts. Fact number one Yoenis is twenty four years old. That's a big one. Don't forget it. Fact, number two. The Milwaukee Bucks or the one seed overall in the NBA best record in the league. Back number three. They are top three rated offense and defense in the NBA this year. Jaanus is a top three defensive player in the league. He might win defensive player of the year. I think Rudy go bears probably a little bit more valuable defensively, but down this is pretty remarkable. That's that's really close for me as to who gets that award. And I haven't even mentioned the offense yet individually. This is what Janas put up this year. Twenty eight twelve six one and a half one and a half as in steals and blocks, I think it was one point three on one one point five on the other. On fifty eight percent shooting. He's got the most appropriate nickname in basketball. He is a freak of nature athletically, Greek freak works. He basically dunk from the free throw line in an NBA playoff game tonight. Any atte- move to the rim. Got an end one. Pounded his Jess screened out. I don't stoppable, and you I ain't gonna argue with them. I've said this before when talking about Zion. I think Zion and Yoenis are actually kind of similar. Now, they don't look similar Zion is six seven Jaanus legit seven one Yana says an insane wingspan. He's thin in long Zion is built like a refrigerator. But I think that they do that. So great is that there's zigging while the league is adding. Jaanus is dunking going to the rim high efficiency shooting at the rim. Dunking blocking shots playing the posts."
