Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the best players of the planet, he has a monstrous track record and is well on his way to becoming a great legend. But during a recent interview, he opened up about what he would love to steal from the Hall of Famers to become the ultimate player.

On another note, he opened up about the abilities he would like to steal from league legends.

And for anyone unfamiliar with Magic Johnson’s legendary « Hee Hee, » here’s an explanation from the principal:

If his desire to master the game from mid-range like Michael Jordan or to shoot from 3 points like Reggie Miller is understandable, difficult to imagine what more he would do with the domination of Shaquille O’Neal… Absolutely no one can stop it in the paint!
