Giannis Antetokounmpo had a career-high 21 rebounds in win 116 to 106 against the Houston Rockets.
The Greek Freak was able to out duel the reigning MVP James Harden. When asked about his name being in the MVP conversation, Giannis made it clear his focus was on the court.
“All I care about is winning, to be honest with you,” Antetokounmpo said. “I know by winning — doing whatever it takes out there, helping your teammates and just leaving it everything on the floor — everything will take care of itself.”
Giannis’ teammate Brook Lopez is ready to vote for him.
“I definitely think it’s our belief inside this locker room, and a lot just around the league, that we have the best player in the league right here,” Lopez said. “He does it in so many ways. He makes so many of his players better. He’s all over the court constantly. It’s so impressive to watch every night.”
