As NBA fans, we’re constantly watching and rooting for our favorite teams and players. And while we root for specific names for various reasons, there’s always someone that we enjoy watching more than others.
For Giannis, his favorite player is a guy he’s faced several times and someone he might battle against for a Championship in the next few years: Golden State superstar Steph Curry.
Amid the NBA’s hiatus, the Milwaukee Bucks star took questions on Instagram and was asked about his favorite players. Curry came up twice.

Damian Lillard and Magic Johnson were also named. It seems Giannis likes point guards.
As for Steph, he’s a favorite by many in the NBA community. He puts on a show with his laser-sharp shooting and literally changed the game. After winning the first-ever unanimous MVP in 2016, he won the MVP the very next year.
Curry is a 6x All-Star, 3x NBA Champion, 6x All-NBA Player. And while he and Giannis have yet to meet in the postseason, it’s only a matter of time until their two teams collide. It’ll be one heck of a show once they do.
