Shannon Sharpe may be a fan of LeBron James, but he changed his mind regarding his GOAT status. The Fox Sports 1 commentator watched the big game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns. His postgame comments were really surprising.
Sharpe has just admitted that the kid from Akron is no longer the greatest player in the world. We are confused…
Is Giannis Antetokounmpo the best player in the league?
The Greek Freak worked really hard to get here. He was impressive in the 2021 NBA Finals. Giannis led the Bucks to the big game and he did it all by himself. In Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Giannis dropped 50 points, 14 rebounds, and five blocks. He helped the Bucks clinch the title. Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns had zero chance against the team.
LeBron is considered the best player in the NBA. A lot of people said he was the GOAT. There’s an ongoing GOAT debate and LeBron wins it every time. It looks like Giannis has earned a spot in the GOAT debate as well.
Shannon Sharpe chose Giannis Antetokounmpo over LeBron James
Sharpe and Skip Bayless went against one another on so many occasions. Bayless hates LeBron and always trashes his performance. He believes that Brooklyn Nets veteran Kevin Durant is the best basketball player in the world. Sharpe opposed these claims and defended LeBron in the GOAT debate. It looks like he is changing his mind.
LeBron is 36 but he doesn’t even think of retiring at this point. He plays elite basketball and was really close to winning the MVP award for the season. The four-time NBA champion sustained an injury and this injury kept him on the sidelines for a really long time. LeBron missed 20+ games and the Lakers missed the chance to win a title.
The king of basketball will have a long offseason to rest and recover. We have at least one good reasons to believe that he will have another MVP season with the Lakers.
