Giannis Antetokounmpo: For me there are a lot of very good players in the NBA that “say” that they work hard but they don’t show it. I mean, everyone can come to you and tell you to work hard, right ? I remember in that meeting, when Kobe was talking he said to me, “My friend, when i was working i was working for 8 hours each day, I was shooting a thousand shots per day.” When i was hearing him saying those words, looking into my eyes I knew that he did those things, I knew it immediately .You could feel that wasn’t him saying bullshit just to impress you. He pointed out also how important a summer is for a player. He said in the summer I need to work as hard as possible and be as exhausted as possible and get used to it , so when I am playing during the regular season the exhaustion wouldn’t be visible.
Skoudis (host): From all the players that are playing in the 30 teams, which one bothers you the most when he guards you? You know, someone that plays dirty, tough or cunning? Giannis Antetokounmpo: I’m not thinking about it. When I’m playing I’m not thinking who I want to guard me or who I don’t, but i remember in my career-high game against the Chicago Bulls I remember before the 3rd quarter I was doing really well but when Jimmy Butler went on me I remember I started really struggling then. He could really stop me, if it wasn’t for him I would have easily scored 40 -45.
