As the reigning NBA MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo has already proven his worth to the world.
But how much better can he really get? The 3x All-Star averaged 27.7 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 5.9 assists on 57% shooting last season. In a recent interview with Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype, Brook Lopez admitted that he feels his teammate Giannis still has levels to reach in his game.
“I mean, it’s crazy that with the level he’s at now, he still has another level or two to go in his game,” Lopez said. “He could become a way better player than he is now, which has got to be a scary thought for the entire league.”
Antetokounmpo is just 24-years-old so it's not ridiculous to think he has yet to reach his prime.
Then again, if that's true, then Giannis might reach heights of greatness we've never seen before.
This upcoming season, no matter how good he becomes, the Bucks will be poised for big things this upcoming season. With Giannis, Brook Lopez, Khris Middleton, and Eric Bledsoe on the roster, they will be favored to win the East. And, if we are to believe Brook about Giannis' upswing, they should be set to compete for years to come.
