Just playing in the NBA is a dream of every basketball athlete. But even if they make it to the NBA, the real struggle begins after entering the league. That's when they need to be consistent and continue to perform better in order to stay in the league.
And with enough hard work and talent, many players crack the list of best players in the NBA. A few years ago, that list didn't include many international players. However, things have changed now.
The NBA has done a great job in welcoming amazing international players who have proved their worth as well. The likes of Luka Doncic, Nikola Jokic, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and more have proved that there are a lot of talented basketball players even outside the United States.
Anyway, regardless of whether a player in the league is from the U.S. or from a foreign country, his goal is to win games that should ultimately result in winning the NBA Championship.
Giannis Antetokounmpo And Nikola Jokic Have Been Dominating The League
Over the last four or five seasons, overseas players have taken a huge leap. We have seen many players enter stardom, and it's evident from the fact that the last four MVP winners are Jokic and Giannis, with each winning two NBA MVP awards.
Of course, that's one thing that proves their dominance. But thanks to a recent post by "StatMuse" another dominating stat of the two players has come to light.
To be honest, there is no surprise in this, as Giannis and Jokic have been hands down the two best players in the league over the last four seasons.
But while Giannis has already led his team to an NBA Championship, Jokic is still searching for a chance to lift the prestigious Larry O'Brien trophy. Keeping that in mind, Giannis is certainly ahead of Jokic, at least for now.
