Giannis Antetokounmpo Pays Huge Praise to ‘Idol’ LeBron James, Reveals What Kobe Bryant Told Him

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo has something to say about NBA legend Kobe Bryant and he also had words of praise for Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.

The Greek Freak had words of praise for the Black Mamba and King James. He had an interview with Cosmote TV and his comments were more than appreciative.

Antetokounmpo has every reason to praise LeBron

Kobe taught Giannis that winning and greatness requires a lot of hard work and the cost stars we have to pay is really big. The Bucks superstar praised LeBron as the GOAT. He made these comments despite the fact that he has been winning most of the MVP awards in the past years.

Antetokounmpo has always praised someone’s ability to win. Giannis was more than grateful to receive the big award this season. However, he was slightly disappointed to see his team stay in the middle of nowhere. Giannis would really love to see the Bucks at the top of the league.

Kobe told me to sacrifice if I want to win and be great,” Antetokounmpo said. ”LeBron is the best in the world, MVP is another story, I can tell that he is the best and my idol, he is 17 years in the League.”

LeBron did his best to deserve these words. He has won four titles and snatched his most recent ring in the Orlando bubble. LeBron helped the Los Angeles Lakers won the 17th title in team history. It was the first title the team has won in ten years. Well, LeBron is still on the roster, and he will try to lead the Lakers to another title. He will receive a lot of help from Anthony Davis, Dennis Schroder, Marc Gasol, Montrezl Harrell, Wesley Matthews, and the rest of his teammates.

When it comes to Giannis, he has yet to make a decision on his future with the team. Will he sign a max extension with the team? He has been linked with the Lakers for quite some time, and the franchise has re-signed his brother. Many say that signing Kostas is tightly linked to Giannis’ potential landing in LA.
