LeBron James versus Giannis Antetokounmpo. The King versus The Greek Freak.
The Los Angeles Lakers just beat the Milwaukee Bucks 113-106 this past Thursday night, and the King vs. Greek Freak debate continues on.
While Giannis is the reigning MVP winner and Defensive Player of the Year, James is still regarded by many as the best player in the NBA. This is especially true after LeBron won the 2020 NBA title and Giannis fell short in the playoffs yet again.
Looking ahead to this year’s playoffs, is LeBron or Giannis the guy you want with the 2021 Larry O’Brien Trophy at stake?
The Milwaukee Bucks cornerstone piece is once again putting up mammoth numbers in the regular season. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 27.0 points with 10.3 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game to start the season after winning MVP over LeBron James a few months back.
Of course, we all know Antetokounmpo can dominate in the regular season. But what about the playoffs?
