The NBA is a league that thrives on talent and undisputed champions who are willing to sacrifice and bleed every single day of their careers just to have the chance to wear the coveted NBA championship ring at least once.

LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, and many other basketball phenoms have won an NBA championship at least once in their careers.

However, starting with the 2021 NBA Finals, which his Milwaukee Bucks won against the Phoenix Suns led by Booker and Paul, Giannis Antetokounmpo has also become part of this exclusive circle of champions who are not only talented but, above all, winners.

Recently, the Bucks forward spoke to “The Athletic” about these issues that concern him closely, and he expressed himself with great clarity, highlighting the winning mentality that distinguishes him:

I’m not talented like Steph or KD. I’m obsessed. I’m obsessed and afraid. Afraid of losing what God has given me and of not being able to provide this life for my children, my brothers, and my mother. And that’s precisely why I work hard every single day of my life. I don’t want to lose all this, and I don’t intend to stop until I play in this league

These are the words of the leader of the Bucks, who is currently averaging an impressive 31.2 points, 11.9 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game, and who, as can be seen from his speech, has no intention of settling for just one NBA championship ring.
