Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo said no NBA player could match him in one-on-one matches.
In arguably the best individual season of his NBA career, Giannis is chasing his third MVP trophy, averaging 31.8 points, 12.2 rebounds and 5.4 assists.
The Greek freak was confident of being the best one-on-one player on the planet.
You gotta build a wall, man. You gotta build a wall to stop me. And then Chicago (Bulls) tried it and Miami (Heat) did it… In my world there are no one-on-ones, you’re playing two guys, three guys, four guys. A vs 1 is not mine, it’s impossible, ”said Giannis.
“One on one? Come on man. You gotta build a wall, man. You gotta build a wall to stop me. They built the Yannis wall, Boston’s doing it now.” Chicago tried to do it, Miami did it’ … There is no one-on-one in my world. Vvn6XMDaIJ… https://t.co/EPYRIVbZtz

With his sheer power, size, and electric speed, Giannis is one of the greatest guards in NBA history, and it’s easy to see why he thinks so highly of himself.
Before suffering an injury that week against the Bulls, Giannis was averaging a staggering 37.2 points per game in 11 games before Chicago.
The Bucks should fit into the Big Three after the All-Star break, and are now on a 12-game winning streak, just one game behind the top-seeded Boston Celtics, and are once again serious title contenders.
