Michael Jordan's 'The Last Dance' documentary is a hit and everybody around the NBA wants to talk about it right now. One of those is Giannis Antetokounmpo, the current NBA MVP and biggest favorite to win the honor this season, too.

Besides showing all the good things Jordan and his Chicago Bulls did during the 90s, Giannis has learned a valuable lesson from the docuseries, something that nobody has said before. The Greek Freak took to Twitter to share his thought about the 10-part docuseries and what he's learned from MJ, the GOAT of basketball.

"My MJ takeaway from the Last Dance documentary is that chasing greatness is a life mission," Giannis wrote.

As the Milwaukee Bucks star said, looking for greatness is not something you can achieve and maintain in one day. This is a task which takes a lot from anybody. If you want to be the best ever at something, you have to give everything you have and more.

Giannis has learned that lesson and he'll surely try to replicate or surpass all the things MJ did with his Bulls. Giannis is young and he's seen as one of the future faces in the league. It's hard to tell right now, but perhaps at the end of his career, he would be part of the GOAT conversation alongside the likes of Jordan, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.
