After a dominant MVP season in which he led the Milwaukee Bucks to an NBA-best 60 wins, Giannis Antetokounmpo said he is at only “60 percent” of what he can fully become.
“I think I can get better,” the reigning NBA MVP told ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk. “I think I am at 60 percent of my potential, as good as I can be. I just want to be better.”
Antetokounmpo said one of the biggest takeaways he took from the Bucks’ run to the Eastern Conference finals is that he has a lot more to work on despite averaging 27.7 points, 12.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.3 steals per game last season.
“There’s a lot of things I can improve on,” Antetokounmpo told ESPN on Saturday after filming for the PUBG MOBILE Team Up Superstar Showdown event. “First of all, [I have to] look at myself before I look at anybody else. Try to self-improve as much as possible. There are a lot of things that I got to work on in my game.
“A lot of people say, ‘You are the MVP, you are one of the best players in the league, you are so dominant,'” he continued. “But I think I can get better. I think I am at 60 percent of my potential, as good as I can be. I just want to be better. If I am in the same situation again [in the conference finals], react better, play the game better, play better, execute better.”
The Bucks are one of the clear favorites to win the Eastern Conference this coming season.
If Giannis is only at 60%, that’s pretty scary just how good he can be.
