“Evan Mobley can become better than me”
In effect, Giannis Antetokounmpo believes he can become better than me. I don’t see why he couldn’t. It just depends on him. I will always try to progress every day on my side. But his panoply already makes him a very, very good player. He’s tall, he moves really well, he can shoot and he’s very smart “, he confided, in remarks relayed by Cleveland.com. Very laudatory statements, even if the player of the Riders was not necessarily to his advantage during this meeting. He scored only 8 points, with an ugly 2/12 on shots.
“He is already ahead of me”
Even so, the star of bucks predicts a great future Evan Mobley : “ He watches videos of other players, which is a good thing for a young basketball player. If he takes it seriously, he’ll be great. During my second season in the NBA, I did not have the same averages as him. He is already ahead of me. If he stays humble, keeps working hard, focuses on the game and his love for it, he will be really strong. »
