Giannis Antetokounmpo compliments LeBron James claiming NBA players ‘cant’ defend the Lakers king

Giannis Antetokounmpo is arguably the best player in the NBA right now and his performances in recent years support this claim. Giannis has been a consistent and dominant force on the court and is often the point of difference in tight matches for the Bucks.

The Greek Freak was recently seen taking part in the “Guess the Secret NBA Player” game with popular YouTuber Jesser. During the game, Giannis seemed to have fun and at one point complimented the now 38-year-old Lakers star, LeBron James.

Giannis Antetokounmpo candidly answers how to guard LeBron James

Giannis took part in the “Guess the Secret NBA Player” game, a type of entertainment video created by popular YouTuber Jesser. He asked a participant a question about the best way to guard LeBron. The participant responded, “Try not to make him go left, make him shoot.” Giannis was then asked to check up on the answer, to which he replied, “You can’t, you can’t guard LeBron.”

LeBron James’ one weakness during his early times used to be his powerful drive from the left, as he is left-handed. His range shots were also not that powerful but with hard work, the King has perfected his weaknesses and now it doesn’t matter if you stop him from going left; he will most probably get that basket from the right as well.

The long-range shooting abilities of LeBron have also improved a lot and now he can make many shots from downtown.

Why Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the best player in NBA?

Last season, Giannis Antetokounmpo was competing for the best player in the league, and it is quite understandable why. Giannis is a beast on the offense and a tank on the defense; he’s got both the offensive and defensive capabilities of a high-caliber player. On offense, the Greek Freak is a threat from anywhere on the court. He scores in the post, he scores off a dribble, and he can also shoot from the perimeter.

In addition to this, his good passing skills also allow him to be a playmaker who can open up scoring opportunities for his teammates.

On the defensive side, he is very versatile and can guard multiple positions. He is also good at the rim and can also collect rebounds and start fast breaks for his team. Overall, he is a complete package with close to zero weaknesses in the NBA. That is why the Bucks are being considered championship favorites after Damian Lillard joined the team.

When Giannis Antetokounmpo was asked about his opinion of him being the best he had a very humble yet diplomatic answer. He said, “In my opinion, way I view it, winner is the best. The guy who wins is the best. I believe that the best player in world is Steph Curry until the next player.”
