“Y’all need to stop being disrespectful; give his title as the best player in the NBA” Shannon Sharpe reveals Giannis Antetokounmpo’s resume as BEST PLAYER in NBA

Shannon Sharpe defends Giannis Antetokounmpo

Sport Analyst Shannon Sharpe praised the two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmopo by calling him ‘the best player in the NBA’. Antetokounmpo has been making headlines since 2018 and has been considered one of the top 3 players in the league since 2019. During that stretch, he won two MVP awards, a DPOY, multiple All-Star nominations, multiple All-NBA team selections, a title, and the Finals MVP award as well.

However, like every star, he faces a lot of criticism. Despite his achievements, numbers and impact on the game, Giannis isn’t in contention as the best player in the league by several fans and analysts.

Shannon Sharpe regards Giannis Antetokounmpo as greatest ever player

NFL Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe, who is now a co-host at a TV show ‘Undisputed’, showed his support for the “Greek Freak” after the latter led the Bucks throughout the season and put up an impressive performance to bag the win in Game 5 over the Celtics.

Here’s what Sharpe tweeted, “Enough is enough. Y’all need to stop being disrespectful to Giannis and give his title as best player in the NBA. Back-to-back MVPs, finals MVP and All star gm MVP in the last 4 seasons. Should be more than enough for him to hold the title. #GreekFreak #BucksvsCelts #NBAPlayoffs2022″

Many criticize Giannis Antetokounmpo and don’t consider him as the best player in the league because he has not won back-to-back championships. If he manages to achieve that this year, there won’t be much left for the critics to debate against that Giannis is indeed currently the best player in the league.

 

Giannis Antetokounmpo had been unstoppable the regular season but he has let out a different animal in the 2nd round of playoffs. He is averaging 33.6 points, 12.6 rebounds and 7 assists per game so far, shooting 46.6% from the field. Those numbers are mind-blowing, considering that the Boston Celtics were the top ranked defense in the league during the 2021-22 regular season and came into the playoffs as the 2nd seeded team above the 3rd seeded Bucks.

The Celtics were also the favored team to win this series as they were, as argued by many, the best team in the league after Christmas Eve.
