Giannis Antetokounmpo Has Bold Words For Lakers’ LeBron James
August 10, 2022
Young NBA players grew up idolizing LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo is definitely impressed. LeBron has been playing the game for almost two decades and his game is really sharp. Moreover, he doesn’t look like a 37-year-old at all.
Antetokounmpo is one of the better players in the NBA right now. He won a ring and a Finals MVP award not so long ago. However, the Greek Freak wouldn’t say that he is the best player in today’s NBA. The Milwaukee Bucks star admires LeBron and everything he has accomplished so far.
“It’s interesting to me how LeBron is still one of the best shapes in his life and being the best player in the world and still being in Year 18,” Giannis told Marca Basket. “Like, that’s really interesting. I want to know how he does that. He’s been consistent for 18 years. He’s always there. Always showing up. That’s unbelievable.
“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, 20 years. That’s the goal.”

Everyone would love to play the game for two decades and not many people have accomplished this. LeBron is one of a kind. Matching his potential is impossible.
King James is not playing games. He invests his time and money and the result is here. Several sources have confirmed he spends a lot of money to keep his body in this shape. How about $1 million? Impressive, right? Antetokounmpo wouldn’t spend that much.
“You gotta spend $1.5 million on your body? I don’t know if I can do that,” Giannis said. “I’m too cheap for that. No, I’m joking. It’s crazy to me, man. He’s been so consistent. It’s fun to watch. It’s definitely fun to watch.”
Learn from the best, kid. LeBron had a change to win the MVP award last season, but the Lakers were eliminated from the playoffs. His stats were crazy and he is the GOAT. Simple as that.
