Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo gave Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James a taste of his own medicine on Friday with a monster block at the rim.
With the Lakers leading 112-110 midway through the fourth quarter, James probably thought he’s going to extend their lead as he attacked the basket and saw a clear path to score. Little did he know that Giannis was timing his approach to the rim as well to stop him.Sure enough, what was seemingly a surefire LeBron basket turned into a huge rejection by Giannis, as the Bucks star sent the ball down hard. Even worse for the Lakers, it resulted to a turnover with Milwaukee recovering the ball.
Antetokounmpo is already a two-time MVP, NBA Champion, NBA Finals MVP and Defensive Player of The Year at 27 years old. As for James, he is 37 and has won four NBA Championships, four NBA Finals MVPs, and four MVPs. He's also been to the NBA Finals ten.
The Lakers won the game 133-129, and James finished his night with 28 points, eight rebounds and ten assists.
