Despite being a two-time MVP and NBA champion, Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks believes that LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers is the most well-known player in the game.
When asked by teammate Serge Ibaka if he is the NBA’s face, Antetokounmpo said that he thinks he is one of the faces but not the face.
On Ibaka’s show How Hungry Are You?, he declared, “LeBron’s still playing,” at 6:59.
Based on their individual profiles, Antetokounmpo believes that other players such as Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets, Nikola Joki of the Denver Nuggets, Luka Doni of the Dallas Mavericks, and Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers are worthy competitors.
To expand on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s claim
It may be argued that James still dominates his field 20 years into his career.
James maintained his position as the player whose jersey was purchased the most throughout the entirety of the 2021-22 season, beginning with the first half of the campaign and continuing through the second. That was despite the fact that the Lakers lost 49 games and were eliminated from postseason contention.
When the NBA released its schedule for the 2022-23 season, Los Angeles was given the second-most games to be shown on national television. This is mainly due to the star power of LeBron James.
LeBron James is planning to retire from basketball at some point in the not too distant future. When that day comes, Antetokounmpo will be one of the most obvious candidates to take over for him as the most prominent player in the NBA.
