Why is it that NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo has his basketball IQ questioned by fellow and retired players? Why is it that nobody questions former NBA player Shaq O'Neill's basketball intelligence? Why is no one questioning former NBA star Magic Johnson's basketball intelligence?
I think people discredit dominant guys like Shaq and Giannis because people view them as less-skilled, which isn't necessarily true. Guys like MJ, LeBron, and Steph Curry are highly skilled in many facets of the game - some different than others. Shaq and Giannis attack the basket for their dominance, as well they should. If they can't stop you why do something different. But yet they get knocked for that.
