‘LeBron James should be getting more credit than he’s been getting’: Giannis Antetokounmpo
There are a lot of NBA players who have stated that they would want to pick LeBron’s brain and learn from his 18-year vast experience. Giannis Antetokounmpo too, stated he would be picking his captain’s brain during the All-Star Sunday.
This jam-packed season, LeBron has barely missed one single game. He has been carrying the Lakers’ workload, who have played without the likes of Anthony Davis for quite some time. Despite voicing his displeasure for the All-Star game, LeBron was present at the event. This is what Giannis stated he respected about LeBron. The fact that the 17-time All-Star is always there is ‘unbelievable’ for Giannis. He added:
“He’s been consistent for 18 years, he’s always there, always showing up. He’s unbelievable. He obviously gets credit but I think we’ve got to give him even more credit. Doing it for 18 years, guys, that’s hard.”
