Giannis Had a Better Night Than Lamar Jackson
All of the national media tomorrow morning will be talking about the night that Lamar Jackson had in Los Angeles. He went off. Jackson took the ball five straight times down the field resulting in five touchdowns. He had another incredible game in primetime and took the world by storm. Jackson is going to win MVP unless something crazy happens in the next few weeks. But another MVP had a better night than Jackson. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 50 points with 14 rebounds, six assists, and no turnovers. There’s only one player who had a night as Giannis did in all of NBA history. His name is Michael Jordan.

This is incredible. I’m not a big guy about the media has no respect for the Bucks, but Giannis did not even make the top bar on ESPN. We have LeBron thanking the Spurs for his three-point shooting, Embiid going scoreless (Hate to see that by the way), Carmelo Anthony scoring 25 points, and Bob Davie getting fired. Nothing about Giannis. But in reality, they all should be talking about what the reigning MVP did last night.
No one is going to believe me in this quest but felt like I should point out that the only other player with a night like Antetokounmpo’s is the best player of all-time.
