I’ve watched Magic Johnson Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan I’ve never seen anybody quite like Giannis Antetokounmpo he’s definitely one of one …we need to appreciate this generational talent..

@MyRedRumsCold supreme athleticism is Gianni’s greatest attribute that’s all I’m saying he’s not as skilled as the GOATs there’s nothing wrong with that it’s only a select few that have been blessed with both Gianni’s is more shaq than MJ LBJ and KD. He’s more about athleticism agility and speed than actual skill

@Esco it takes skill to score when everyone knows your game and it definitely takes skill to play defense

@swish.highlights oh on it’s cool I respect your opinion. I like when people different goats. Before I used to be all about Jordan but that is beginning to fade away for me. Cause for so long I wanted it to be a shaq like player with guard skills, for now I’m just enjoying his dominance and hope he can continue

@Jos23 Nobody denies Giannis can be a top 10 talent ever, but theres zero world I wouldn't take a peak LeBron, a dude lot see as the greatest player ever, over Giannis. Right now yes, I'm taking Giannis all day but at their best, it ain't a debate imo.

You have to get Giannis in person at some point. You already had a bunch of his teammates (at least 6, former and current ) so there is a way to reach out. His story is crazy, he is funny and laid back and looking how he treats regular media I can see him being a great guest

Think Giannis isnt really the type of person to do many interviews. Others may see it as branding opportunity, or just as brothers helping eachother out. I personally dont see Giannis having much interest in that, he always lets his play on the court do the talking. I remember some story that he, as odd one out, didnt want to go do pick-up in LA with all the other pros because they could get a competitive advantage out of that. He is so laserfocused on the on-court stuff, rest seems to not have much meaning. Ofc this i just my personal opinion and i dont know him, but that would be my guess

Dudes jj pod is successful cause players are put on a safe and familiar place where they can open their heart. The US players at least. I think Giannis would not feel as comfortable. I think it can only work if all jj manages to get all the brothers together. Then you will see Giannis open up.

@Phrates It's probably really hard to get Giannis. In the summer he spends much of his time abroad and in season it's probably not possible to get a interview with him in person unless you travel to Milwaukee. And even then it's probably tough with how dedicated he is to the game, recovery and his family.

It's truly amazing to see international players like Giannis, Embiid, Siakam and others coming to the US with barely any basketball experience, entering college or going straight to the pros, having an impact in the league early on and, in this instance, even achieving all-star & MVP status. Genetics and hard work can absolutely make up for lost time.

I think when you look into Giannis upbringing and how rough he and his brothers had it being on the poverty line that instills a hunger, drive, and work ethic in you that can't really be taught and doesn't go away. It reminds me of Kobe and how for him growing up in Italy in isolation in a way shaped him into developing that mamba mentality. A lot of a persons upbringing shapes who they are and what their mentality is

@Andrea Ricca Might be true. I was watching an interview he did he said he grew up in Italy with no friends and when he came back to the states as a teenager he couldn't relate to any of his peers due to the cultural difference between Europe and the States. He said basketball was the only way to make them accept him. In a sense basketball was truly his bestfriend which is why he worked so hard at it

Kobe loved growing up in Italy. Maybe the language barrier was there at first stages but he blended in perfectly, even speaking with local accent and dialect. Later on, I think his drive was inspired by something else.

Κωνσταντίνος Αργύρης
I can't say that, even though i'm Greek. There have been many superstars with great, humble personalities. Magic, Dirk, Pau(maybe not a superstar per se in the NBA, but definitely a superstar all-around the world with unreal international accolades) and most of all Duncan! Tim is like the ultimate anti-star.
recoil53 Πριν 2 μήνες
I think it's a combination of not growing up with the idea of basketball stardom and also being responsible for his family after his father died. To a degree he approaches basketball like a job more than living the life he always wanted. I'm not saying he doesn't love the sport, but he wasn't thinking of this since childhood. And once he got to the NBA and his father got sick, he had that bread winner role. Look at athletes who are responsible for their families and most more grounded.

In comparison to Jimmy & Giannis who have develop new skill sets since their early days in the league. KAT still don't play Defense, Tatum still takes a million contested jumpers and doesn't finish over the top of smaller defenders.

I don't want to do this and bring it back, but let's look at the "highly skilled" James Harden's career against Giannis'. It was not about being almost 7ft and just dunking the ball. All along it was about the amount of work you are willing to put in, and how badly do you want it.

One of the most important things about Giannis is that he is the least sneaky player out of the big names, and he has never flopped once. He is as straight as an arrow when it comes to playing, he just goes in and plays like his parents are there watching him every game. He is a good person with good values, hard to come by when you are at that level.

Thanks for being honest DeMar. The hate Giannis gets is incredibly weird to me. I’ve been going to 40-60 games yearly center court row 10 since 1987 (10 games a year in 85 and 86 also) and Giannis last 4 yrs one of best 4 year stretches I’ve ever seen (from 23/24 to 26/27 years old especially). So many casuals confuse handles/shooting as the only “skills” in basketball when there are many skills and aspects to the game and Giannis is elite at all of them outside shooting (getting better and is 6’11” 250 so besides Durant Dirk Hakeem Garnett and few others none of the all time bigs 6’10” and taller are great shooters and we don’t hold it against them for being the top10 GOAT (Russell Kareem Wilt Duncan Shaq Giannis all elite all time greats and not better then avg shooters. Giannis has best handles of all of them and top2-3 passer). If Giannis keeps improving and stays health by the time in 2030 I’d be surprised if he’s not in my top5-15 somewhere.

btw when Giannis came to the league he did know how to play basketball. Not one on one moves and stuff that is taught in the US but actual team basketball. That is the difference Europeans have with Americans and this is why the top 3 players of the next era are all Europeans, coz moves can be learned even at late stages of an athletes career the mentality and basketball IQ needs to be taught from a young age

The narrative that Giannis isn’t skilled is ridiculous. Dribbling the ball for 20 seconds and then shooting a step back 3 is one/two skills in the entire game lol (James Harden 🤦🏼‍♂️). Athletic 7 footers have happened and will continue to happen in the NBA but being big and athletic doesn’t guarantee you’ll be great. If it did, Deandre Jordan, Dwight Howard and Javale McGee would be talked about like Giannis. They’re probably as athletic if we talking sheer athleticism and power. Yet Giannis can literally dribble like a guard, lead the fast break on his own and or finish it, he can play in the post on offence, he can pass out of it. He can face up from the perimeter and get by anyone. On defence, he literally can guard all 5 positions. His perimeter D might even be the best we’ve ever seen from a guy his size, and obviously he protects the paint. You don’t become an MVP, FMVP, DPOY just coz you big lol. If you really think about it, the ONLY weakness to his game is his shooting. The rest of it is as elite as we’ve ever seen and he’s not really even in his prime prime. We all know he somehow still has the potential to get better even where he’s currently strong. So if you consider that shooting is his only weakness, then the idea he’s not skilled is so damn dumb. I mean, Kobe and MJ could say Harden got no skill coz he can’t play in the post like those 2 or move without the ball. The man has a far smaller skill set overall than Giannis haha and it’s not even close 😂

Well at least we know this interview won't be full of lies and softball questions like Ben Simmons. Remember when JJ claimed they were New Media? THAT WAS A LIE

Thats a very hot take but I believe Giannis will finish his career as top 3-5 player of all time.

Top ten and if everything goes well in the future maybe top 5 I think

That sums up Giannis. Obsessive. He plays obsessively. Think about how guys mak love to women. Some go slow, whispering into her ear, tryinna bring her chills, then start soft then go harder. Giannis just gets in and gives 100% until he gets out.

When you’re not from here, your mentality is different. It’s a hunger that us Americans don’t have. And it doesn’t take long to see the difference. Watch a few possessions of his games and then let me know what you think about my statement.
