With a championship, multiple MVP's and a Finals MVP next to his name, Giannis Antetokounmpo remains as motivated as ever.
Speaking with Cosmote TV, Antetokounmpo still says he is chasing the best players in the league.
"I like being a hunter. I am not the best player in the world," said Antetokounmpo as reported by Harris Stavrou of SPORT24.
"I am telling you, i am not. KD, LeBron, Kawhi, Luka, Curry, AD might be. I am not. I am still hunting the All-Time Greats. LeBron is still the best player in the world"

Known for opting not to workout with other stars during the offseason, Antetokounmpo explained his approach.
"I am not working out with other players because we just can't be friends. We can't get a coffee together. If we do that, i cannot be aggresive with them on the court".
The 2021-22 season marks the first year of his supermax extension with Milwaukee, a contract that was the lead story heading into training camp last season.
"I was thinking if we can make it happen in Milwaukee. I told the owners my goal was to win a championship. I didn't care about money, about fame. I love Milwaukee, it's my second home, but i just needed a commitment".
Still only 26 years old, Antetokounmpo has already built a Hall of Fame resume with the Bucks with the next challenge being back-to-back titles and continuing that "hunt" to become an all-time great.
