Read and know more about Colin Cowherd ranking Giannis Antetokounmpo above Kevin Durant.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Colin Cowherd and Kevin Durant

Colin Cowherd just ranked Giannis Antetokounmpo above Kevin Durant while calling him out as the best player in the league. It looks like he is changing his bus as until last year he was riding with Kevin Durant and shading Giannis Antetokounmpo with all the criticism he can from ball-handling skills to shooting. But a hard-earned championship where the Greek Freak single-handedly carried his team through injuries has changed the narrative completely. Colin Cowherd now believes in Greek Freak as he stands tall on his side while calling him the best player ever and adding that Kevin Durant was never the best one even though he ranked him as the best player in the world last year.

He also brought LeBron James into the conversation as he mentioned some of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s LeBron James like stats actually better but like him for example: Freak averaging 28.6 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 6.2 assists per game in a single post-season (no player has ever reached these marks in a single run). Colin Cowherd also mentioned how godlike Giannis Antetokounmpo led Milwaukee Bucks are even though they are missing Khris Middleton their second-best player and scorer. If we compare Kevin Durant with Greek Freak, KD may win with a stacked resume but Giannis Antetokounmpo is right behind him chasing him down with everything he has got. Since Kevin Durant’s success is limited to his time at Golden State Warriors alongside Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. While the Bucks Leader stayed loyal fought it all alone and won the championship for his city instead of going on an easy trip.

Giannis Antetokounmpo

As of now, the Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Milwaukee Bucks will be facing the Boston Celtics in the conference semi-finals. While the Brooklyn Nets are wiped off the chart by Jayson Tatum and squad in a 4-0 sweep. Colin Cowherd took all these into consideration and attacked his all-time favorite player Kevin Durant in his latest segment on his radio show and podcast.

Colin Cowherd discussing the comparison between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant quoted: “We’ve spent a lot of time talking about KD this week. Giannis is better than KD has ever been. I hate to break it to you. KD was never the best player in this league. He was on the best team and was Finals MVP, I’m not disputing that. But he was never better than LeBron in his prime. I never think there’s a year where he’s been better than LeBron. Giannis is significantly better than LeBron today. Not close… KD was never better than LeBron. When KD gets a lot of attention — he’s calling himself god now, wonderful. But Giannis is a better player than Kevin Durant…Giannis did a better deal more team-friendly and now he will dominate the east with years and years to come… he can do all that congratulations Milwaukee.”
