Giannis Antetokounmpo is a 2x MVP, 4x All-Star, and reigning NBA Defensive Player of The Year. To many, his skill set, size, and resume are enough to put him amongst the NBA’s elite — even at 26-years-old. To some, he’s right up there with LeBron James for the title of being the NBA’s best player.
Still, the status of Giannis’ placement with other top stars is controversial, at best. On social media, for example, one fan incited discussions by denying the “Greak Freak” was better than LeBron, Durant, Curry, Harden, and Kawhi.
