Giannis Antetokounmpo is arguably having the best season of his career. In the Milwaukee Bucks’ most recent win, a 135-110 win over the New Orleans Pelicans, he became the first player in NBA history to score 50 points and grab 13 rebounds in 30 minutes or less. If that wasn’t amazing enough, he did so while shooting better than 75% from the floor.
The two-time MVP has been garnering the attention of current and former NBA greats for years. However, his performance on Sunday night drew the attention of NBA Hall of Famers and fans alike,

George “Ice” Gervin told me today that Giannis reminds him more of how he glided and played than anyone since he left the game.

Debate all you want, give MVP to whoever you want, I don't care. There is nobody I'd rather have as my franchise player than Giannis Antetokounmpo.
