Jrue Holiday draws comparison between the big men

The Bucks guard, Jrue Holiday has opened up his choice between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Anthony Davis. He said, “Giannis is always downhill. That’s one thing I feel is the difference between him and Anthony (Davis). Giannis puts pressure on people at the rim. Either I’m gonna get the charge or you’re gonna get the foul. Most of the time, I’m Giannis Antetokounmpo, I’m MVP and DPOY, you’re gonna get the foul. Regarding Anthony Davis, he said, “Anthony can go for 50, by shooting all midrange, offensive rebounds and stuff. The way that Giannis works is like a battery pack. He just never stopped coming at you.” 

Anthony Davis recently made his comeback to the NBA after his achillies injury. While he is getting less minutes on the court, Giannis having a merry time destroying rims.
