Giannis Antetokounmpo: ‘It’s over, guys’ after hearing who will join him on Team LeBron in All-Star Game

Giannis Antetokounmpo knows firsthand what an effective general manager LeBron James can be.

Zlatan, 39, is often outspoken and his comments reached LeBron James.

Here was part of LeBron’s response.

“I will never shut up about things that are wrong. I preach about my people, equality, social injustice, racism, systematic voter suppression. Things that go on in our community because I was a part of my community at one point, seeing things that were going on, and I know it is going on still,” James said.
