LeBron, you’re a four-time MVP. What do you think?
“I think at the end of the day, it’s all about team success. That’s what we all want,” James said. “But he has the skillset, he has the talent and he has a great coach that can help him get to that point.”
And you, Dwyane Wade, a former Finals MVP, who’s playing his fifth season alongside James. What say you of Antetokounmpo?
“Obviously you could tell he’s put in a lot of work to his game,” Wade said. “He’s got the confidence early on from his coach when everyone was saying he couldn’t shoot, he couldn’t do this or that, his coach gave him a lot of confidence and his teammates believed in him. It took his confidence to another level. He’s at that point now where he’s just figuring it out. He’s being nasty. He’s dunking everything down by the rim.”
Antetokounmpo stands 6-foot-11 but handle the ball like a guard which makes it hard for his defender. He’s also fifth player in NBA history to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. Also, Antetokounmpo is first to place in the top 20 in each of those respective categories in a single season.
With that similar performance, it helped him earn his first All-Star selection, an All-NBA Second Team mention, and the NBA’s Most Improved Player award.
