Will James Harden or the Rockets ever stop complaining?

Will James Harden or the Rockets ever stop complaining? James Harden is now blaming the media for Giannis Antetokounmpo’s decisive victory in the 2019 NBA Most Valuable Player of the Year award race, and well, yeah: The media votes for the MVP. But this is just more classic Rockets refusing to let a loss go. 

Giannis Sina Ougko Antetokounmpo (YAH-nis AHN-teh-tuh-KOOM-poh; Greek: Γιάννης Αντετοκούνμπο, IPA: [ˈʝanis adetoˈkumbo]; born December 6, 1994)

Giannis Antetokounmpo has already accomplished things on the basketball court that the majority of NBA players could only dream of, but the reigning NBA MVP still feels he has not come close to reaching his full potential.

Veteran teammate Brook Lopez agrees.

After he took home the MVP honors last month, Antetokounmpo said he believes he has only accomplished 60 percent of what he is capable of doing. When asked about that comment in a recent interview with Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype, Lopez said he sees it the same way.

“I mean, it’s crazy that with the level he’s at now, he still has another level or two to go in his game,” Lopez said. “He could become a way better player than he is now, which has got to be a scary thought for the entire league.”

As of now, Brook Lopez has shown an impressive performance as a member of the Bucks . This season, the 30-year-old center is averaging 14.0 With his ability to go up against one of the best centers in the Eastern Conference, Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo can’t help himself but

Giannis averaged 27.7 points, 12.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.3 steals per game last season. He’s virtually unstoppable when he’s on his game, and there are few players in NBA history who are or were more explosive going to the basket. Despite that, Antetokounmpo seems to do a great job of keeping himself grounded and always wanting more. Remember, this is the same player who asked Bucks fans to stop calling him the MVP even after he won the award.

Antetokounmpo is just 24, so his best years are ahead of him. He’s made it clear what his No. 1 goal is, and it has nothing to do with taking home more MVP hardware. If Giannis is only at 60 percent now, we can’t wait to see him at 100.

The MVP exits: Giannis, Greece fail to advance at World Cup.
SHENZHEN, China (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo now has a little more time to get ready for the NBA season. That would be an unwanted consolation prize. The reigning NBA MVP's stay at the World Cup is over, even after a victory in the team's finale. Greece needed to beat the Czechs by at least 12 points to have any chance of reaching the quarterfinals, and instead is heading home after an 84-77 win on Monday wasn't enough to push it to the next round. "He's proud of his team. ... We gave everything we have," said Thanasis Antetokounmpo, the MVP's brother, along with his Greece and now Milwaukee Bucks teammate. "It's crazy — you win and you don't get to the next round.
