Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the best players of this generation. The Greek Freak has become a dominant player. His strength, corpulence, and skills have allowed him to be 2 times MVP (2019 and 2020) and once NBA champion in 2021, a season in which he was also the MVP of the finals against the Phoenix Suns. This makes him an authoritative voice to argue whatever he wants about basketball.

Giannis has no problem acknowledging the greatness of King LeBron James. He even acknowledges that even though many put him above King LeBron, the Nigerian-born says LeBron is still the best. It’s interesting to me how LeBron is still [in] one of the best shapes [of] his life and being the best player in the world and still being in year 18,”

Giannis was also surprised by the level James maintains after years of career; “Like, that’s really interesting. I want to know how he does that. He’s been consistent for 18 years. He’s always there. He’s always showing up. That’s unbelievable.

Giannis also said that despite the recognition LeBron has, it's not enough. According to Giannis, even more, credit should be given to LeBron James;  “He obviously gets credit, but I think we’ve got to give him more credit. Doing it for 18 years guys, that’s hard. And hopefully, hopefully, I can be there. Hopefully, I can do this for 18 years, or 20 years. That’s the goal.”

LeBron James and his incredible numbers for his age.

Shortly before the start of a new season, LeBron James remains at a superlative level. Despite a poor season for the Los Angeles Lakers last season, LeBron James had an extraordinary campaign averaging more than 30 points per game. If we compare it to the last seasons of players like Kareem Abdul Jabbar or Kobe Bryant, LeBron's numbers become even more incredible. James is just over 1,000 points away from surpassing Kareem as the all-time leading scorer in NBA history.
