Giannis Antetokounmpo was crowned by ESPN experts as the best player in the NBA, but in his opinion, the honor should have gone to another person - Stephen Curry.

"For me, the best player in the world is the last one left standing," he said.

"The one who takes his team to the final, crosses the finish line and helps win. That's how I see it. In my opinion, the best player in the world is Steph."



As you can understand, the Greek Freak was not comforted by ESPN's choice - he wants another championship, especially after the disappointment in the last Eurobasket with the Greek team.

"I was jealous of Golden State," he said.

"I saw their parade, you really feel how the title was taken from you."

Last year, this title was taken from him already in the second round, after losing in a huge thriller to Boston at the end of seven games.



"I try not to think about the MVP titles, they gave me a lot of happiness, but winning the championship will give this city 20 times the joy," Yanis added.

"In Europe it is much more difficult. Obviously, in the NBA the talent is greater, but there everything is more intense. People guard you all over the court, everything is more crowded, more physical. I don't know if it is more physical because there is less talent."

"I would say the same thing about the champion, and I said similar things about him last year. I appreciate the compliment, but it's not going to make me nicer," Steph said in response.



Kerry himself used Golden State's media day to focus primarily on the league's suspension of Phoenix owner Robert Sarver.

The Warriors star said that he himself contacted Adam Silver to discuss the issue: "All of us, as a league, reacted. There should be a clear standard throughout the league of what is allowed and what is not allowed. I think what happened was right in the end, I was afraid it would drag on a little longer but I'm happy that the group is now for sale."



The Warriors will try to retain the title, but it won't be easy - especially considering the age of the leading stars.

Klay Thompson, however, is rather optimistic - especially regarding Steph: "He works so hard, he's in great shape and he just loves this game so much. He's competitive in an unusual way, I think he can play until he's 40."

Russell Westbrook continues to try to prepare for the season in the shadow of rumors of a future trade that will send him away from Los Angeles.

When asked if he felt his team wanted him, he replied: "I don't have to. I have to do my job, whether they want me or not. That's the most important thing. I'll do what it takes to win, and I'm ready for any situation. I don't lack Confidence. Yes, I could have played better last season, but my confidence was not affected."
