Giannis Antetokounmpo Makes Admission On LeBron James’ Amazing Season

Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is considered a favorite when it comes to winning the award this season. However, if you ask him, Giannis will say that LeBron James is the most “inspirational” player in the NBA. LeBron is 35, and that’s what impressed Giannis the most.

Giannis and LeBron faced off in the All-Star game as leading vote-getters in their conferences. Both players had some incredible numbers.

“A lot of times we think that ‘Ok, we’re going to retire at 35, but seeing a guy at 35, being still top-3 best player in the world, that makes us want to be there.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo praises the King

The Greek Freak had a really stunning MVP campaign in 2018-19 with Milwaukee. This season, his numbers went even higher. He upped his scoring to 29.6 points per game and his rebounds to 13.8 per game. To this, you can add 5.8 assists per contest, 1.0 steals, and 1.1 blocks. This makes him a brilliant player and a superstar.

Let’s not forget that Antetokounmpo is only 25 years old. He has yet to approach his prime. Just the thought of this gives us chills. On the other hand, we have the 35-year-old king who is in the middle of his most impressive season.

This season, LeBron shoots better from deep than he did in the 2018-19 season. It’s 35.1 percent vs. 33.9 percent. His passing game is insane, and this makes him a complete superstar.

LeBron leads the league in the “holy trinity” of NBA passing numbers: assists per game (10.7), total assists (610) and assist rate (49.8 percent).

LeBron goes hard on offense, but he is successful on both ends of the ball. The NBA’s reigning MVP praised the king for his impeccable game. LeBron deserved that and much more. He is ready to give his Lakers the first title since Kobe Bryant, and according to their record, there’s a really good chance for this to happen. LA has a 47-13 record at this point of the season. Lakers players are on top of the Western Conference, and the best has yet to come. They are all-in when it comes to winning a title.
