Giannis Antetokounmpo is the last player to give his list of the best players in the history of the game. Antetokounmpo went live on Instagram, where he discussed several topics and even discovered his girlfriend was a Lakers fan growing up.
The Milwaukee Bucks star is not new doing lives, but this time he revealed more things to fans than he did in prior times. For instance, he listed who he believes are the six best players of all time.

He went with Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and LeBron James.
All these players are frequently mentioned on this kind of list. They’re considered the best of the best in their respective positions, and some of them have transcended that, placing their names in the GOAT conversation.
Giannis has had a very good career, improving his level season after season, becoming the huge star he is right now. The current NBA MVP is seen as one of the heirs to the throne in the league once LeBron James calls it quit. Some say he has everything to be considered as one of the greatest ballers of all time, but there is a lot to wait and see before that happens.
This season he was leading his Bucks to have the best record in the league, en route to win the East and play in the Finals. Now, the league is suspended and Antetokounmpo and the rest of the stars are waiting for the NBA to restart the season and keep fighting in one of the most entertaining seasons in the last years.
In the meantime, he’s naming the 6 best players of all time. He included 5 Lakers players there, which is something always worth noting, just like Jayson Tatum and his also controversial list.
